As the weather gets cooler, most of us begin to day dream about vacationing to a tropical paradise. According to Family Vacation Critic, the 5 best places to escape the snow are as follows:
1. The Bahamas
The Bahamas is a great choice because it offers a little something for everyone. Between its 30 islands, relaxing beaches and high end nightlife and social scene- you can find whatever you're in the mood for.
Cancun is typically thought of as the go to party spot for highschool and university students, but that's only in March and April. Cancun also offers much more than just a good party, including beautiful white sand beaches, snorkelling, and ruins.
3. Costa Rica
If you're looking for a vacation that involves more nature and culture exposure, Costa Rica is the place for you. If the monkeys, dormant volcanoes, parks and reserves don't impress you. Then the gorgeous beaches and the relaxing canals that you can float down- will.
4. The Dominican Republic
The Dominica Republic is one of our personal favourites. It truly does have everything you could ask for in a vacation. It includes the tallest and lowest point in the Carribean, rain forest and desert climat, 16 national parks and both the Carribean sea and Atlantic Ocean. What more could you want?!
Last but certainly not least is Florida- a very popular destination for Ottawans. The convenience of being able to drive from Ottawa to Florida in 1-2 days makes it an attractive choice for many. Not to mention, Disney World is in Florida!
