Winter 2016: 6 Breathtaking Destinations You Need To Visit
It’s no surprise that more and more of us are keen to escape the grey skies during the winter months.
Here at Evaneos Travel, we’ve selected our 6 favourite destinations for winter getaways, and while we can’t promise to guarantee impeccable weather, our average traveller rating of 4.8/5 does attest that our local agents hold the winning formula to creating an excellent holiday.
Sri Lanka (pictured above)
What we love: Bursting with culture and colour, its ancient temples, pristine, natural wilderness and white sandy beaches will leave a lasting impression long after your departure!
When to go: Dec – Apr
What we love: Deservedly referred to as a tropical paradise, you’ll be blown away by its stunning waterfalls, sublime beaches, and exotic animals of both the energetic (monkey) and lethargic (sloth) variety.
When to go: Dec – Mar
What we love: Not content with being just a history buff’s dream with its Mayan ruins and archaeological sites – including one of the seven wonders of the world – Mexico boasts stunning landscapes, mesmerising lagoons and sun-blissed beaches, to boot.
When to go: Dec – Apr
What we love: A lot! From whale watching and glacier trekking in Patagonia, to the home of Malbec wine (Mendoza), to its aptly-named Devil’s Throat waterfall in Iguazu National Park. We should probably give a mention to ‘the Paris of the Southern Hemisphere’, Buenos Aires, too.
When to go: Nov – Mar
What we love: Costume-clad residents taking to the streets to the sound of samba, otherwise known as Carnival. You’ve probably heard about it, but have you been? Our local agent, Bruno, is happy to help others to immerse themselves in the best of his country’s traditions.
When to go: Dec – Mar (Carnival 2017: Feb 27th – Mar 1st)
What we love: If a long-haul isn’t your cup of tea, Morocco’s Berber tea just might be! At just a two hour flight from the UK, prepare to be plunged into the country’s intense flavours and spices, as well as the diversity of its unique landscapes. The Sahara by camel, magical Marrakech, trekking in the Atlas mountains and the notorious Casablanca all await you.
When to go: Nov – Mar
