Are you in need of an affordable winter getaway this year? Check out the following destinations that won’t break the bank. 

Puerto Rico

Did you know you can travel to Puerto Rico without a passport? Enjoy stunning beaches, delicious cuisine and plenty of opportunities to snorkel and swim. This beautiful island offers excellent service and amenities for those without a large budget. Try salsa dancing or the coffee Puerto Rico is famous for. This is one destination that you’ll be glad you ventured to! 

Las Vegas, NV

They say Las Vegas is an adult playground. There are plenty of shows, casinos to gamble in and incredible places to eat. However, if you venture out a little ways, you can find even more to do. Hike Mt. Charleston, and enjoy fun Holiday activities at Town Square, the Linq, and Lake Las Vegas that are family friendly. Whether you’re going with your significant other, friends or family, there’s something for everyone here! 


Break out your passport and pack your bags! A trip to the Bahamas is much more affordable than you think. It’s not far from Florida so it’s usually pretty easy to find reasonably priced flights to this destination. Hotels are inexpensive and there are so many things to do. Warm water encourages swimming, snorkeling and a host of other water activities. You can also enjoy waterparks, amazing restaurants and bars while you’re there. 

Catalina, CA

If you’re looking for an inexpensive vacation spot closer to the west coast, book a trip to Catalina Island in California. Winters don’t get too cold here so you’ll be able to enjoy water activities like snorkeling, swimming and fishing. In fact, Lover’s Cove has been voted one of the best places to snorkel in the world. It’s a 1 hour boat ride from Long Beach, CA. You’ll feel like you’re going somewhere exotic when in reality, you’re only about 20 miles from the Southern California coast. 


Have you ever wanted to visit Spain? Winter is a great time to do so. An article written by K.C. Dermody for states, “Costa del Sol, Seville, and Barcelona all make fantastic winter destinations since the weather is quite a bit warmer than most of the rest of Europe. Costa del Sol in the winter enjoys average temperatures in the lower 70s. At popular resorts like Marbella, you can enjoy soaking up the sunshine on one of 24 beautiful beaches, sipping cocktails in the elegant marina, and indulging in retail therapy in trendy boutiques. In Barcelona, take a stroll around the dramatic Gothic quarter and visit the magnificent cathedral, or walk down Las Ramblas, the city’s main strip, to watch street performers, dine in numerous tapas eateries and check out La Boqueria, one of the best markets in Europe’s.”
