Mexico has to be one of my favorite destinations on the list: it’s full of wonders!

Literally, it’s home for a World Wonder, Chichen Itzá, that worths a trip itself. But it also has beautiful beaches, great hospitality, the only cuisine ever considered World Heritage, the nicest people, colorful streets, cenotes, ancient culture… well, the list goes on and on, and as you can imagine: yes, the weather is lovely during our winter time!

The best time to visit Mexico is from December to April.

The slogan says “it’s more fun in the Philippines!” and it may be true, but I would say “it’s more like paradise in the Philippines!”.

Let’s be honest.

Thailand is always a good idea. From November to April, the weather in Thailand is just perfect. But anyways, I would recommend visiting even during the monsoon season, too.

Thailand is perfect to escape the cold, to feel like in you’re in another world but at the same time, totally safe. Everything’s nice and easy, the beaches are insane, Bangkok is a city like no other and the temples and culture are completely mesmerizing. And I haven’t mentioned food, shopping, massages, hotels, or parties yet. Yes, those are awesome too!

Plus, Thailand is perfect to travel solo, with friends, or as a couple. You see? There are no downsides!
