And, after you eat, try football on the beach and discount shopping in honor of Black Friday!’s resort recommendation:

Caribbean Winter Break - Jamaica
The December holidays in Jamaica are very similar to the U.S. - sans the cold weather. Most public places are filled with vibrant banners, colorful holiday décor/crafts, and traditional food. While it does not snow in Jamaica, ornaments are still displayed in a grandeur manner throughout the island and concerts/parties leading up to the December holidays are a necessity. Travelers will definitely hear carols, both traditional and with a reggae twist, as well.’s resort recommendation:

Mexican Winter Break – Rivera Maya
Because most of Mexico is strongly Catholic, Christmas is the biggest holiday. Gift giving and family celebrations are how most spend the big day so why not give the gift of a beach vacation? Riviera Maya is lavishly decorated to represent the holiday season so take in the great view on a warm, sunny beach while sounds of holiday cheer surround you. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving!’s resort recommendation:

Junkanoo! – The Bahamas
Talk about a jolly holiday, prepare to party at Junkanoo in the Bahamas! Starting December 26, a parade of dance troupes – including some on stilts - hit the streets to celebrate their history. Hypnotic rhythms, goatskin drums, cowbells and whistles fill the air, as dazzling costumes, colorful masks, colored crepe paper and cardboard decorate the sky. This celebration of freedom and Bahamian pride is a great way to celebrate the winter break.’s resort recommendation:

New Year – Dominican Republic
Music, dancing, excitement? The Dominican Republic has it all – especially when it comes to ringing in the New Year. Expect lots of revelers enjoying good food, spirits and fun. In addition, several traditions are observed for the New Year. Locals wear colorful clothing based on their wishes for the coming year. Wearing green means that your main priority is to improve your financial situation while red symbolizes the desire for a bright future.
