Little girl on beach. Best family spots for your winter getaway.

During the winter, there’s nothing better than having a family vacation to look forward to. If you are dreading the cold weather already, planning a trip to somewhere with a warmer climate can make the next few months much more bearable. Keep reading to discover some of the best family spots for your winter getaway this year.

Cancun, Mexico

While you may not think of Cancun as a family friendly vacation destination, you’ll be blown away by the luxury all-inclusive resorts here. They are suitable for visitors of all ages, and many of the top resorts have fantastic kids and teens programs to keep them entertained. The weather here is good throughout the year, and it’s just a short flight from Canada and the US, making it ideal for anyone who is limited for time. No matter your budget and accommodation needs, you’ll have no trouble finding somewhere to stay here.

Orlando, Florida

Florida is blessed with a warm climate throughout the year, which is why so many people escape here during the winter months. Kids and teens will love visiting Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando, both of which offer endless days of entertainment. You’ll find resorts in the Orlando area for every budget, but make sure you plan your trip well in advance so you don’t miss out on anything you want to see and do. While you may think this type of trip can be quite costly, with a bit of forward planning, you’ll find that you can make it a more budget friendly adventure if you need to.


Jamaica is another great winter sun destination for families looking to explore somewhere a little more exotic. We recommend choosing an all-inclusive resort as the base for your adventure, where you can then explore the local area from. Make sure you head out and see some of the spectacular waterfalls on the island, as well as take a thrilling tube trip down the river. You’ll love immersing yourself in the culture and atmosphere of Jamaica, which can be felt from the minute you step off the plane.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is another popular location with families of all ages and would be a good option for an extended family trip. In the winter, you’ll find that the weather is tropical here, allowing you to unwind and escape with a good book by the pool or beach. The resorts here are some of the finest in the world, offering you every type of accommodation you could imagine and endless dining options to keep you full throughout your trip.

These are just a few of my top picks for the best family spots for your winter getaway this year. By planning ahead now, you’ll have something to look forward to throughout the colder months, which all of your family will really appreciate. Wherever you choose to go this winter, I hope you have an amazing time and create memories that will last a lifetime with your family.
