One of the great things about the UK’s tourism industry is that there’s a fantastic array of possibilities all year round. Whether you love city breaks, sunshine escapes or activity-laden getaways with the kids, there’s never a shortage of memorable holidays just waiting to be discovered. And with the sheer choice of discount family holidays on offer, you can get away without worrying about your bank balance too.
But why save your holidays just for the summer, when the beaches are crowded and there’s always the possibility of some half-decent weather back home? Opting for a winter break means you’ll not only get to enjoy a quieter ambience, but you can jet off to sunnier climes and work on your tan while everyone else is feeling the wrath of Jack Frost back home.
Take Cancun holidays for instance. This gorgeous slice of paradise is an absolute treat – especially during the winter months. In January, Cancun typically maintains a steady temperature of 20 – 25 degrees with plenty of sun during the day, meaning you’ll get to enjoy the sun’s warmth without the overbearing heat often associated with July and August. In bearable temperatures such as these you can get out and about to explore this mesmerising place in comfort. A visit to the pyramid of Chichen Itza is an absolute must. Or if you fancy something to get the adrenalin pumping, why not join a tour guide and head into the steamy jungle in search of ancient Mayan ruins?
There are many delights the world over just waiting to be enjoyed. Whether you’re into long-haul escapes to paradise, a quick jaunt to nearby sunny shores or a voyage of discovery into ancient forgotten treasures, there’s always a sunshine break or a great escape with your name on it.
