New York has been on the list of top domestic travel destinations for many consecutive years. During this winter holiday season alone, millions are expected to flock to New York to enjoy holiday festivities which include parades, holiday shopping, traditional holiday performances, ice skating, and Christmas tree-lighting ceremonies. But for everyone who is eager to get to New York this winter holiday season, there is someone in New York equally eager to escape the cold weather, crowded streets, and busy shopping malls.
This is a great time for a Caribbean vacation. Travel studies show that winter is considered the high season for tourism to the Caribbean, largely because travelers want to escape the cold winter weather of the North. Caribbean tourism booms from mid-December through mid-April. The weather in the Caribbean during these months is drier and less humid, with average low temperatures in the low 70s and average highs in the mid-80s. In addition to higher temperatures, you will notice higher prices for flights and hotel accommodations. But those people who are not dreaming of a white Christmas are willing to pay a little more to enjoy the beauty and warmth of the Caribbean during this winter holiday season.
Caribbean Christmas celebrations are joyous occasions with family, food, and fun. Come for the holidays and stay for the festivals and parties. There are plenty of things to do; so whether it’s Christmas, New Year’s Eve, or one of the Caribbean carnivals – there are great reasons to escape to the Caribbean this winter holiday season.
