First, all that polar vortex nonsense. And, now, endless rain? Seriously, this weather, well, we could not be more over it.
It’s time now to bask in the life-affirming glow of the warm sun. Which, technically, you could do right here at home. If you're patient. Or, you could get some instant gratification and do it on vacation, somewhere that's not too far away. Indeed, out there, you could get the full-blown effects of summertime paradise a few weeks (maybe even months) early.
That's why we whipped up the definitive guide to the vacations you need — whether that's a ritzy getaway or a casually rustic hideaway. Ahead, 10 spots that range from eco-friendly beach digs to luxe hotels set against luscious seascapes and mountains. And, bonus: They're all just a (relatively) short flight away on the postcard-perfect shores of Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.
