Creating special memories with your family and loved ones during the yuletide season is a core tradition for the people living in the West.

Money has always been a factor when it comes to leisure travel, and this is why we have curated 5 cheap warm places to travel this Christmas season:
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Average Yuletide Temperature 25 C
Located in the country’s Pacific coastline, Puerto Vallarta has continued to remain a staple of the Mexican tourism industry – and for a good reason too. This is because it remains one of the most exciting and original places to visit amongst some of Mexico’s resort jewels.
The weather is sublime for tourists escaping the frigid temperatures, and you can always find a good deal on air tickets from the USA and United Kingdom. Furthermore, you will not be robbing a bank anytime soon to enjoy your stay in this beautiful resort area as there are many hotels for less than $100 a night.
Expect to enjoy the warm sunny beaches while dining on authentic Mexican cuisine.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Average Yuletide Temperature 25C
The Dominican Republic may not be known for breakthroughs in science and technology, but one industry where this little country is known is its tourism sector. The Dominican Republic has so many breathtaking resorts none as popular as Punta Cana.
It is a beautiful island nestled on the eastern border of the country. Tourists will find over 200 hotels to stay, some of which come with resorts that are purposely built to keep you enjoying your holidays throughout your stay.
The weather is nice and warm, the beaches are beautiful, and the hotels are affordable with rooms under $100. In order to make the most out of your flight and hotel package, it is advisable to book early. That is the time to get some of the best deals on offer.
Ambergris Caye, Belize
Average Yuletide Temperature 23.5 C
For those who would like to holiday under the radar, look no further than the beautiful island of Ambergris Caye, which sits off the coast of Belize.
A thin island that stretches for miles, it is always a pleasure to see the look of surprise on the face of a tourist when they board golf carts as the Uber vehicle of choice.
Thrill-seekers will not find a better diving and snorkeling experience than the clear waters of Ambergris Caye. Although the natives speak good English, there is a Jamaican feel to the island, which gives it an interesting blend of culture and tradition. The 4-star hotels all start above the $200 mark, but you can always expect a good deal for a 3-star hotel as well as holiday villas for those with more money to spend.
Roatan Island, Honduras
Average Yuletide Temperature 26.5C
Roatan Island has a similar feel with the Belize islands even though it is located in the south and sits close to the second largest barrier reef in the world. Although the natives speak Spanish, English tourists can still relate to the locals in the English language.
There is not a lot of hotels to choose from, with a little over 50 available. But the rates are surprisingly cheap despite the limited offerings.
To enjoy your stay, it is wise to book your holiday packages early as decent accommodation generally gets snapped up once the Christmas season is in full swing.
Tamarindo Guanacaste Costa Rica
Average Yuletide Temperature 26.5 C
Costa Rica stands out as one of the few countries with a Caribbean and Pacific coast. It is a beautiful country with picturesque beaches and a sunny climate.
As a tourist looking to enjoy the yuletide in warmth, one of the choice areas to relax is in Tamarindo around the Guanacaste province. Booking your flight to this breathtaking resort just got more accessible with the new International airport located in the nearby city of Liberia.
Most of the resort facilities are new, and this makes hotel bookings slightly more expensive. You can always find rental properties that are far more affordable compared to Hawaii.
Better still, you can decide to holiday in the nearby town of Nosara with the same offerings but cheaper hotels. With some of the best beaches and resorts in the world, Tamarindo is a tourist heaven for you and your family to create those special memories that last a lifetime.
