From Nicole:

October is almost over and we’re going to be talking about Winter Escapes in November. Do you  enjoy a cold weather trip this time of year or prefer to jet off to some exotic beach? Although I’d love to go to a snow-covered destination for a change, I normally go for a beach vacation this time of year. In fact, there are tons of great winter sun destinations according to the folks at Conde Nast, who recommend these three destinations as their top choices:

  • Thailand Islands – November through March
  • Mexico – Atlantic Coast, November through March. Pacific Coast, December through April
  • Med islands – October to November
