It’s about that time for us to remind you that the holiday break period will be back before you know it – so now is the time to lock in your best winter vacation spot, ever.

This also means that “deals” are few, and far between – and so is availability if you wait too long to book! There are only two ways to get around this:

  1. Don’t travel that particular weekIf you can possibly avoid it, do not travel during any part of that period. The three weeks leading up to Christmas are some of the slowest travel weeks of the year – go then. You can snag some serious deals that will save you hundreds, if not thousands, if you are able to travel in the beginning of December. Unfortunately, there are case where you just can’t go any earlier (parents and teachers: we’re looking at you) so here’s your next best solution:
  2. Book early. As in, now. The earlier, the better. Lock in your travel now to secure the good plane seats, best resort room categories and best available price. Right now is the time to pony up a deposit on your winter break travel and save yourself the hassle of finding availability or paying even higher prices down the road. Trust us, you will thank us later.

So, without further ado, here are our favorite destinations and resorts for 2017 winter vacations:

Turquoise ocean. White sand beaches. Lush greenery. Spectacular waterfalls. Need we say more? Jamaica is the place to go for a stunning and unspoiled environment. Here are a few of the best resorts in Jamaica:
