Why? Dive, swim and snorkel in the world’s third largest coral reef system; enjoy the diverse culture; dance to ripsaw music; and eat lots of fresh seafood. English is the main language, and the U.S. dollar is the local currency.

St. Lucia

Why? Lush with rain forest, sprouting with banana plantations and, most of all, rich in culture. Driving the island, it’s clear that much of the action is found on the west side, where the calm Caribbean Sea laps its waves ever so softly against the shore.

Madeira

Why? Is where many go to escape winter thanks to its mild temperatures and as much as ten hours of sunshine a day in January. A gem worth discovering at any time of year, Madeira is especially great to visit in winter months due to the reduced numbers of visitors and the low cost of living will make it a very affordable trip after your Christmas splurging.

Malta

Why? One of the Mediterranean’s best kept secrets, often forgotten in winter, which means that the streets of capital city Valletta or the beaches of nearby Gozo, are emptier than during busy summer months.
