Where's hot in December?

Get more inspiration

White Christmas or white sandy beach? Decisions, decisions.

Some dream of a white Christmas, others prefer sunbathing on a white sandy beach. If you’re more likely to choose tanning over tinsel, you’ll be pleased to know there are plenty of sun-soaked destinations to visit in December. Whether you fancy a relaxed retreat in the Caribbean or an active escape to America, take a look at our top recommendations for a dreamy December holiday.

The Caribbean

It’s easy to see why December is a popular time to visit the Caribbean. It's the start of their peak season here. During the winter months, the islands are hot - with temperatures circulating around 28°C. You can expect plenty of sunshine and warm, crystal-clear seas. And the best thing is, you’re not leaving Christmas behind completely. It's celebrated in unique Caribbean style with colourful decorations and snowmen on the beach! This winter-sun destination isn’t only for sunbathing, dining alfresco, and word-class spa facilities though. There are lots of fun events held in December, too. "St Lucia Day", "St Nicholas Day" and the "Junkanoo Parade" is popular amongst locals and holiday makers.

The United Arab Emirates

It’s important to mention, December is the coldest time of year here. However, as the summer months are so hot, the winter is very popular. In Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, temperatures still reach up to 26°C during December. And, of course, there’s the ever-popular destination of Dubai. Many flea the festive frost with a trip here. As winter is a little cooler than summer, you can enjoy the iconic theme parks and attractions comfortably. So, if you’re not a fan of intense heat, December is the perfect time to visit the UAE.


December is right at the start of America’s dry season. So there are plenty of destinations boasting tropical weather. And with temperatures between the low-20's and late-30's, this is perfect for a long, relaxing beach days in the sun. Mexico, Cancun, and Costa Rica, are all popular choices. You can explore lush jungles, wildlife watch, take advantage of the excellent dining scene, and much more. With heaps to do, and high temperatures - America is the perfect pre (or post) Christmas escape.


What better way to avoid those pesky winter blues, than by jetting off to the other side of the world! Reliable sunshine, sandy beaches, and lively cities, make Australia the perfect destination for a December holiday. And, it’s good to know, no matter where you’re heading, it will be warm or hot in Australia. Underwater adventuring is incredibly popular here How about trying some snorkelling and deep-sea diving in the Pacific Ocean? Or, if you prefer something a little more relaxing - there’s stargazing in the outback, sunbathing in Sydney, or sipping on cocktails next to your luxury hotel pool. It's fair to say, Australia is a dreamy December getaway with a difference.
