25 cheap destinations in 2020 with great weather in December

Acapulco

Phuket Beach ChairsThe final month of the year marks the time when people in northern climates start looking around for an escape to the sun. Fortunately, there are big parts of the world that have their best weather of the year at this time, and are very cheap as well, once you get there. The best places to visit in December are of course close to the equator or even below it.

Most of the destinations below are in Latin America and Southeast Asia, so depending on where you are starting from it might be a rather long flight to get there. Many of us can take two weeks or even more around this time of year, but that fact means that all of these places do get crowded and raise hotel prices for the weeks around Christmas and New Year’s. Speaking of that, we have a separate list of cheap and warm places to go over Christmas and New Year’s, only listing beach areas around the world with affordable hotels during that period.

It’s best to book as far in advance as possible for both your flights and hotels, since so many people have the same idea and prices generally just keep going up as it gets closer.

COVID-19 situation

As of the August, 2020 edit of this article, the COVID-19 situation is pretty bad through most of the world. Many travel destinations on the list below are closed to those from outside of the regions, but quite a few are now getting ready to accept visitors. Needless to say, you’ll want to check the most current information for any destination before you book.

Where to go during COVID19?

Those looking for a winter getaway from the United States or Canada will be happy to know that they’ve got many great options for sunshine trips during the pandemic, including many of the destinations on the list below.

The Americas

A few parts of Latin America are still rainy in December, but most of it is clear and enjoying the best climate of the year. Every single city on this list and in these regions will get more crowded and expensive just before Christmas, so visit earlier if you are looking for bargains.

The Caribbean

Negril JamaicaJust as with Cancun mentioned below, the rest of the Caribbean has excellent weather yet very moderate prices, until just before Christmas. On the Friday before Christmas the region fills up and stays packed (at high prices) until mid January, but for those first 3 weeks you can get great deals, especially on Dominican Republic and Jamaica.

If you are mainly looking to just relax on a warm beach then your best bet is an all-inclusive resort. Prices at some beachfront 3-star hotels start at just over US$100 per night for two people, with food and drink included. Of course the better ones cost more, but not as much as you might expect if you know where to look.

Cancun, Mexico

  • December avg high: 83°F/28°C
  • December avg low: 70°F/21°C
  • December avg precip: 3.8″/9.5cm

Constitution Day in ThailandWhile Cancun has become the king of the Mexican beach resort towns in the few decades since it was formed, it’s only one of many, and all of them on both coasts have very nice weather in December. In fact, Cancun is probably the most expensive of them, so especially if you are coming from the west coast you are better off in Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, or Los Cabos instead.

Once again, it’s worth noting that the first half of December will be cheaper and far less crowded than the time around Christmas, so if it’s possible you should come early for best value. Still, compared to, say, Miami Beach, Cancun and the other Mexican resort towns are far cheaper and at least as fun as well. By the way, Cancun is mainly just a strip of high-rise hotels along a lovely beach, while Playa del Carmen (about an hour south) is a real tourist-friendly town with smaller hotels as well as hundreds of restaurants and shops to choose from.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

  • December avg high: 84°F/29°C
  • December avg low: 73°F/23°C
  • December avg precip: 0.8″/2.0cm

JamaicaAs December begins in the Caribbean, the hurricane season is officially over and the weather is pretty much perfect by any standard. Punta Cana is the Dominican Republic’s most popular resort areas, especially for those who aren’t particularly interested in absorbing the local culture. This is a resort area with wonderful beaches and not much history.

Unsurprisingly, the end of December is the beginning of the peak season for resort prices, so those who are able to come earlier in the month will be getting better deals. Still, the all-inclusive resorts are locked in heavy competition all year so this area can be a great deal compared to the alternatives, even in high season. If you are looking for where to go in December for an all-inclusive beach holiday, this is your best option for most people.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$45 per night for two people

Montego Bay, Jamaica

  • December avg high: 85°F/29°C
  • December avg low: 73°F/23°C
  • December avg precip: 1.6″/4.0cm

KingAs with other Caribbean resort destinations, the weather in Montego Bay is perfect in December, and the first half of the month is still cheap for flights and resort prices. The weekend before Christmas is when peak season here starts, and if you book early enough you can still get a good deal then, but don’t expect many last-minute bargains during that period.

Montego Bay’s busy airport has cheap flights from most major hubs including many in Europe, so it’s one of the easier places to reach as well. If Montego Bay itself doesn’t sound perfect then you might instead consider Negril or Ocho Rios, both of which are about 90 minutes from the same airport and each has a different feel.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$79 per night for two people

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

  • December avg high: 86°F/30°C
  • December avg low: 64°F/18°C
  • December avg precip: 0.9″/2.3cm

Latin AmericaThe destinations above are good choices for anyone in Europe or the eastern half of the US or Canada, but those in the western US and Canada should consider Puerto Vallarta instead. Unlike many other tropical resort destinations, Puerto Vallarta is a real town with history and an interesting downtown area right on the beach.

The December weather is pretty much perfect and dry, and airfares and hotel rates are very reasonable up until Christmas itself. If you are in California you might also consider Los Cabos, although Puerto Vallarta is more interesting and usually cheaper as well. This is definitely one of the best places to go in December if you are anywhere near the Pacific Ocean.

Guanacaste, Costa Rica

  • December avg high: 91°F/33°C
  • December avg low: 70°F/21°C
  • December avg precip: 0.5″/1.3cm

Los CabosCosta Rica is known as the adventure travel capital of Central America, partly because a third of the country is national parks. But Costa Rica is also famous for beaches, and the best ones are mainly clusted along the northern Pacific coast in the Guanacaste region. The nearby Liberia Airport provides a convenient way to get in and out quickly.

Tamarindo and Smara are two of the most popular beach areas, but there are other good choices in the area as well. This part of Costa Rica is known for large chain resorts on the beach, and the 4-star resorts can be pricey, while the more traditional 3-star hotels are still very reasonable. Costa Rica is obviously one of the hot countries in December in both temperature and popularity, so book early.

Mexico City, Mexico

  • December avg high: 69°F/21°C
  • December avg low: 44°F/7°C
  • December avg precip: 0.2″/0.5cm

Miami BeachSurprising to some people, December can actually be a bit cool in Mexico City, especially at night. Its elevation keeps it mild all year, but at least the rainy season is totally over by December, so it’s an ideal month for a cheap cultural holiday, perhaps combined with a trip to one of Mexico’s many beach resorts. You can get cheap flights between Mexico City and Cancun or Puerto Vallarta, for example.

As Christmas approaches the city will fill up much more, so if you can go early in the month you’ll be much better off. But even if you can’t go before the last week of the month you’ll still find Mexico City to be a tremendous bargain compared to pretty much anywhere else in North America. It’s a great shopping destination, and not just for goofy souvenirs, so that’s something to think about as well.

Cartagena, Colombia

  • December avg high: 86°F/30°C
  • December avg low: 76°F/24°C
  • December avg precip: 1.3″/3.3cm

Puerto VallartaBy early December the rainy season is pretty much over in Cartagena, and it cools down just a bit more as well, so the weather really doesn’t get any better than this. As with most others on this list, right around Christmas you’ll find that hotels get more expensive and are more crowded, so if you can go earlier in the month you’ll be paying less and dealing with fewer crowds.

Cartagena is becoming a very popular winter beach destination for people from North America, and it’s still a fantastic bargain compared to better known places, but it might not stay that way forever. As Colombia gets more popular (and as long as it stays safe) then prices should keep going up at these resort towns.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$74 per night for two people

Lima, Peru

  • December avg high: 76°F/24°C
  • December avg low: 66°F/19°C
  • December avg precip: 0.0″/0.0cm

St. NicholasWhile December is quite busy in Lima, as a very popular summer beach destination for South Americans, it’s also still very reasonably priced so it’s worth considering if you are exploring the continent. The beaches aren’t spectacular as they are in Brazil and elsewhere, but Lima is still a great summer city with great outdoor life this time of year.

The food, including its famous ceviche dishes, is a particular highlight here, and the tourist district of Miraflores is packed with interesting and cheap restaurants. Basic and cheap hotels are in the same neighborhood, so it’s a better alternative to the historic center of Lima for most people. By the way, the rainy season in Cusco starts in December, so the trails can sometimes be cut off, although many people go anyway.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$52 per night for two people

Santiago, Chile

  • December avg high: 83°F/28°C
  • December avg low: 54°F/12°C
  • December avg precip: 0.1″/0.3cm

ThailandThe weather during December is Santiago is pretty much perfect, with warm days and nights cool enough so that anyone can sleep without needing air conditioning. This is obviously part of high season in Santiago, although the first half of the month won’t be as crowded or expensive as the second half.

It’s true that Santiago is not considered a top-flight destination by everyone, but it’s a fantastic base for a trip involving several stops in Chile, especially this time of year. There’s the Colonial town of Valparaiso and many adventure towns in the mountains, so you can get a bit of everything in at very reasonable prices.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

  • December avg high: 83°F/28°C
  • December avg low: 65°F/18°C
  • December avg precip: 4.1″/10.3cm

travel destinationsUnlike most cities on South America’s west coast, Buenos Aires has fairly consistent rainfall all year long, and you might see a bit of the wet stuff even during December. Still, the temperatures should be ideal for being outdoors, and this is really mostly an indoor city anyway, so when it does rain you’ll be able to pop into a shop or museum or cafe and have a great time.

Hotel prices definitely go up in around Christmas so it’s best to come early in the month if that’s possible, but it’s still a pretty good bargain even during the peak weeks. Book early if you can because the better and cheaper hotels will fill up first, of course. Also consider a side trip to the Mendoza wine region, Patagonia, or the amazing water falls of Iguazu.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$41 per night for two people

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

  • December avg high: 88°F/31°C
  • December avg low: 72°F/22°C
  • December avg precip: 5.1″/12.8cm

West CoastDecember is yet another fantastic month for weather in Brazil, although you can expect some short tropical rain storms a couple times each week, usually only an hour or so each time. It’s also getting warm enough that you are going to want a hotel with air conditioning to get to sleep at night, since it’ll be warm and muggy even in the wee hours.

As with most on this list, hotels get very full and more expensive just before the Christmas holidays, so it’s better to come early in the month if possible. That way you’ll have your pick of places at some surprisingly good room rates, even at some high-end places on the famous beaches. If you are coming during Christmas then book a hotel NOW because they’ll be full and will keep getting more expensive the longer you wait.

Europe

From December through February there are literally no European cities that could qualify as having “great weather,” except for the Canary Islands, which is listed below. So during the winter Europe is all about cultural tourism, and lower hotel prices make it especially appealing for those who like to stretch their travel budgets and avoid crowds at the same time.

Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain

  • December avg high: 71°F/22°C
  • December avg low: 61°F/16°C
  • December avg precip: 1.7″/4.3cm

AcapulcoDecember might be the only month of the year in the Canary Islands where very few people would consider sunbathing. Still, compared to everywhere else in Europe, Tenerife is balmy. The largest and most English-speaking of the Canary Islands, Tenerife is no mystery to the hundreds of thousands of northern Europeans who spend a month or more here every year.

Even if you can’t sunbathe, the weather is still reliably pleasant all the time, with almost no rain. Weekly and monthly apartment rentals here are very popular, but there are plenty of hotels and hundreds of restaurants for those coming for shorter periods. If you want to be with the most English speakers you’ll want to focus on the southwest area of the island around Los Cristianos and Playa de la America.

Africa

December is ideal in much of Africa, though Morocco might be a bit too cool by this time. The list below is quite incomplete due to how few cities we cover in the region.

Cairo, Egypt

  • December avg high: 68°F/20°C
  • December avg low: 50°F/10°C
  • December avg precip: 0.2″/0.5cm

AmericasIn spite of its image of being blazing hot all the time, December in Cairo can actually be on the cool side, at least in the evenings. This is great though because almost all the important sights are outdoors and requite a lot of walking between them. For 9 months of the year it can get very hot doing that, so these few cooler months are ideal for visiting the famous sights.

Fortunately, it rarely rains at all in Cairo, so even though December is one of the wetter months, that means nothing and you are unlikely to see even a drop of rain. Hotel prices do reach their peak in Cairo starting late in December, so it’s best to go early in the month if possible. Egypt is definitely one of the cheapest places to travel in December, and the weather is surprisingly nice as well.

Cape Town, South Africa

  • December avg high: 77°F/25°C
  • December avg low: 59°F/15°C
  • December avg precip: 0.7″/1.8cm

Boxing DayCape Town obviously has its summer beginning in December, so temperatures should feel nice to anyone coming from a winter climate. It’s about as far from the equator as Los Angeles is, and it has a similar climate in reverse, meaning that it rarely gets too hot or cold, at least near the coast.

This is a fairly cheap city compared to Europe or North America, so at least bargains are not hard to find on the ground once you get there. The flights are of course long and usually a bit expensive, so the whole trip will add up for sure. Hotels will be cheaper in early December than during Christmas week, of course.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$61 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$79 per night for two people

Asia

December is an ideal month in most of Southeast Asia, except for much of the coast of Vietnam, which gets rain this month. Crowds, of course, get big just before Christmas, and hotel prices go up accordingly. It’s too cold in China, Korea, and Japan to make this list.

For a longer list see our best December destinations in Asia choices, which includes some of these but quite a few more.

Boracay Island, Philippines

  • December average high: 82°F/28°C
  • December average low: 75°F/24°C
  • December avg precip: 7.1″/17.8cm

caribbeanThe traditional rainy season winds down in early December in Boracay, but even early in the month you are only likely to get a few quick showers each week. Typical of the Tropics, the rain often hits in the afternoon, and is over 30 minutes later, leaving behind yet another amazing sunset as the clouds slowly disappear.

If you are looking for something far less developed than Phuket or any other Thai island, Boracay might be for you. This gorgeous strip of sand is a bit out of the way, but partly because of that it still feels only partly discovered. You’ll spend your days relaxing along White Beach or walking up and down the sandy paths that serve as the only real form of transport for most people. Many visitors come every year, and quite a few of those never seem to leave.

Bangkok, Thailand

  • December avg high: 88°F/31°C
  • December avg low: 69°F/21°C
  • December avg precip: 0.4″/1.0cm

Constitution Day in ThailandThe driest and coolest month of the year, Bangkok is ideal during December, or at least as ideal as it’s ever going to get. It’s very hot and quite humid almost every day of the year, but the humidity backs off just a bit during winter, and that will be much appreciated for anyone spending more than an hour or two outside.

There’s a massive range of quality and prices when it comes to hotels in Bangkok, and the city is enormous as well, so you really want to do your research for this place. Most people are happier paying a bit more to stay near the river and all the tourist attractions, or even in the infamous Khosan Road backpacker district, which is cheap and fun, if tacky.

Goa, India

  • December avg high: 91°F/33°C
  • December avg low: 69°F/21°C
  • December avg precip: 0.3″/0.8cm

JamaicaIf you are looking for a cheap, beautiful, and relaxing beach destination during December then Goa is ideal. This has become hugely popular with package tourists from Europe and Israel (and more recently Russia), and the facts that pretty much everyone speaks English and there aren’t many cultural opportunities means that it’s a perfect place to just vegetate in a beach chair for a week or two.

Not surprisingly, the weeks around Christmas and New Years are literally the busiest of the year in Goa, so either book a hotel way in advance or be flexible once you arrive. Some towns, like Calungute, are lined with package hotels that fill up completely, but other towns, like Anjuna and Vagator, are usually booked in person or by email, so you can often find a place just walking around. If you are in the mood to tour around, Mumbai has great weather during December, and Delhi has warm days but cool evenings this time of year. Goa has some of the best beaches in December in all of Asia, so give this one a serious look.

Chiang Mai, Thailand

  • December avg high: 83°F/28°C
  • December avg low: 59°F/15°C
  • December avg precip: 0.8″/2.0cm

KingUnlike Bangkok, which has warm evenings and blazing hot days pretty much all year, Chiang Mai cools off nicely during December, at least in th evenings. This is an outdoor city with an emphasis on hiking and exploring temples so the cooler temperatures will be welcome for most people. It’s still hot most days, and quite dry as well, so it balances nicely.

Hotels in Chiang Mai are among the world’s greatest travel bargains, with decent private rooms available for under US$10 per night in the city center. Pay more and you get a lot more, so it’s fun to feel like a big shot in a US$20 room that is almost like a suite. It gets crowded around Christmas so prepare for that and book early.

Luang Prabang, Laos

  • December avg high: 80°F/27°C
  • December avg low: 58°F/14°C
  • December avg precip: 0.5″/1.3cm

Latin AmericaIt’s not the most famous city in Southeast Asia, but Luang Prabang is incredibly popular among those who’ve visited, and fortunately the weather during December is pretty much perfect. There’s no rain to worry about and it even cools off enough in the evenings to where you won’t need an air conditioner and morning hikes will be very comfortable.

Hotel prices definitely jump up around Christmas, so this is yet another place where you should come in the first half of the month if possible. Most people visit along with a trip to Bangkok and Siem Reap, but other cities in Laos are worth a stop as well, especially Vang Vieng (if you are a backpacker type) and Vientiane.

Siem Reap, Cambodia

  • December avg high: 88°F/31°C
  • December avg low: 69°F/21°C
  • December avg precip: 0.4″/1.0cm

Los CabosThere is a key reason why December is the best month of the year to visit Siem Reap. More than any non-beach city on this list, Siem Reap is an outdoor town due to the main attraction being the glorious Angkor Wat temples just to its north (and the whole reason you are coming to Siem Reap in the first place).

Those temples are all outdoor for the most part, so cooler and dryer conditions mean you can spend more time touring the temples and still being comfortable. Almost any other month of the year and you’ll be better off going back to your hotel for a few hours in the afternoon, but in December you can carry on all day if you like. The town of Siem Reap is a delight in itself, but of course it fills up near Christmas.

Phuket, Thailand

  • December avg high: 88°F/31°C
  • December avg low: 75°F/24°C
  • December avg precip: 2.3″/5.8cm

Miami BeachPhuket is incredibly popular among Europeans in December, especially the final week, of course, so it’s critical to book early to get a good price at a beachfront hotel if that’s your mission. It’s also important to mention that Phuket is an island with more than a dozen different beach towns, each with its own personality and price range. Some are raucous and down-market while others are quiet and very expensive.

The prices given here are on the low side, especially during the winter season, so you are going to pay more unless you are willing to stay in one of the simple hotels in Phuket Town. It’s not a beach resort, but it’s a fun place itself, cheaper than the beaches, and allows an easy way to cheaply visit multiple beaches during a visit.

Hanoi, Vietnam

  • December avg high: 71°F/22°C
  • December avg low: 60°F/16°C
  • December avg precip: 0.8″/2.0cm

Puerto VallartaIt’s actually a bit chilly in Hanoi in December, but generally very dry and exceedingly pleasant around the clock, so it’s a very good time to visit. Nearly everyone who visits Hanoi will be doing it as part of a larger tour of Vietnam or other countries in Southeast Asia, and this is one of the cooler cities this time of year, therefore a nice balance to some of the places that are still quite hot.

Hanoi is actually the cheapest tourist city in the world according to our Backpacker Index, and that’s partly due to beer and museums being incredibly cheap. In reality, you’ll want to spend more money than the minimum because everything is great value.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

  • December avg high: 87°F/31°C
  • December avg low: 71°F/22°C
  • December avg precip: 2.2″/5.5cm

St. NicholasDecember is the coolest month of the year in Saigon (as it’s locally known) and the rainy season is pretty much over by November, so this is an ideal time to come as part of a tour of Southeast Asia. It’s normally blazing hot and humid here, so the moderate temperatures will be a bonus even if you have nothing to compare it to.

HCMC is not quite as cheap as Hanoi, and it’s not as nice to look at either, but it’s definitely worth a visit for a combination of history and culture. This is a huge and sprawling city so it’s important to choose the location of your hotel carefully. During Christmas things do fill up and prices go up as well, so book early if possible.

Middle East

December is cool and even a bit rainy in most of the Middle East. An exception is Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which both have perfect sunny weather.

Dubai, UAE

  • December avg high: 79°F/26°C
  • December avg low: 61°F/16°C
  • December avg precip: 0.6″/1.5cm

ThailandDecember and January are the busiest two months in Dubai, primarily because it’s one of the closest places to Europe that actually has warm weather this time of year and is also safe. Even though the UAE is a Muslim country, the Christmas weeks are the most expensive here because most visitors are from Europe anyway.

The December weather is actually warm enough to sit on the beach, but most people who come to Dubai tend to just relax and do a lot of shopping at one of the enormous and modern malls here. The restaurant scene is very interesting as well, and you can eat cheaply if you follow the local workers, or go to one of the hotel restaurants and get world-class cuisine.

The real magic of New Zealand is in the scenery and smaller towns. December is the beginning of summer in New Zealand so temperatures should rise as the month goes on. If you’ve got at least a week and hopefully more, New Zealand is best discovered by doing a tour. You can rent a campervan/RV in Auckland and drive around to see the best sights on the North Island, and then take a ferry to the South Island to see even better scenery.

You can also rent a car and drive to the same places where you can stay in cabins in holiday parks/campgrounds, and small hotels and guest houses are reasonably priced as well. But renting a campervan is the classic way to see New Zealand and it can be surprisingly cheap since you’ll only be paying a small fee to park for the night in the abundant campgrounds. You’ll also be cooking many of your own meals, which is helpful because New Zealand doesn’t have many cheap restaurants or take out joints outside of the bigger cities. Queenstown on the South Island is the adventure sports capital of New Zealand and not to be missed. Rotorua on the North Island is also very much worth a stop.

Ranked: The 20 Top Places Americans Are Dreaming About Right Now

america

While the coronavirus pandemic is continuing and stay-at-home orders remain in effect for many Americans, the travel world is slowly beginning to wake back up, with hotels reopening, destinations starting to prepare for the summer vacation season and people considering traveling again. According to a new study from The Points Guy, 31% of Americans would consider taking a vacation outside of the home between now and the end of the summer. A Deloitte survey showed that 35% of Americans plan to fly domestically or internationally in the next three months. And another survey by RENTCafé.com reported that 42% of Americans want to stick to their existing travel plans—though 11% of the respondents said they would look for less popular and less crowded destinations.

In light of those survey results, RENTCafé.com—a nationwide apartment search website and research blog—decided to conduct a deeper study and see which destinations are holding strong during the pandemic when it comes to their appeal among Americans. To do that, the company analyzed travel-related Google searches for 960 destinations in the US and then ranked the destinationstownsbeaches and natural areas that saw the smallest drop in interest from people dreaming about a future escape.

Note: This story is not recommending places to go right now, as coronavirus has interrupted travel on a global scale and throughout the United States. Plus, some of the destinations in this story are currently closed to visitors and have no available services (hotels, rentals, restaurants), while others are inhabited by locals who actively do not want outside visitors. But should you decide to plan a trip anywhere during the coronavirus pandemic, you should check local travel restrictions for the destinations you are hoping to visit, consider warnings from the State Department and CDC and be prepared for quarantines or restrictions that could make travel challenging. Travelers should also consider risk factors like age and existing health issues before going on a trip and take precautions to keep themselves and others safe.

Travel Searches Down, Interests Changing

According to RENTCafé, overall travel searches for popular US vacation destinations plummeted by 64% in March and April 2020 compared to the same time last year—but the results are telling. The study showed that Americans are craving small-town comfort, beaches and nature vacations, while city trips have drastically decreased in popularity. “It’s worth noting that the survey and the keyword research show the travelers’ intentions, which might materialize this summer or maybe later,” says Alexandra Ciuntu, a researcher for RENTCafé.

Topping the list of the places that Americans are dreaming about going right now is Outer Banks, North Carolina, which RENTCafé identified as the “most resilient travel destination during the [COVID-19] lockdown,” based on the smallest decrease (-25%) in travel searches compared to March and April last year. Compare that to a 78% drop in popularity for Brooklyn, New York.

“The Outer Banks are among those travel destinations that offer everything: Instagrammable beaches (and lighthouses too!), great food, reasonably priced activities, picturesque towns,” says Ciuntu. “Thanks to the expansive sandy beaches, travelers can easily observe social distancing if necessary. The Netflix series with the same name made Outer Banks even more popular during the lockdown.”

Coming in second on the list of favorite places is Yellowstone National Park, which reopened on Monday for the first time since it was closed in March due to the pandemic. Small towns also performed well. The tiny town of Fairbanks, Alaska—known for its Northern Lights viewing—is the third favorite place on the list.

Ciuntu says it’s surprising to see which destinations are not on the list. “For example, Miami, Orlando, Las Vegas and San Diego witnessed a staggering decline in interest. Travel searches for these crowded popular spots plummeted by almost 70% compared to a year ago,” she says.

Top Beaches, Small Towns, Natural Attractions

Besides ranking the overall list of top 20 destinations, RENTCafé also drilled down on specific areas of interest, ranking the top 10 beaches, small towns and natural attractions that people are dreaming about right now.

Not surprisingly, the Outer Banks is at the top of the list of favorite beaches. Despite Hawaii’s headline-making quarantining efforts, the state’s appeal hasn’t diminished during lockdown. Honolulu is second on the list of favorite beach destinations and—in total—four Hawaii destinations rank in the top 10. The preppy Massachusetts islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard are also in the top 10.

The study also looked at small-town America, which RENTCafé says is more alluring than ever. “Whether it’s the desire to escape crowded cities or find quiet comfort, towns and smaller cities shine as the top post-pandemic getaway destinations that have maintained their popularity during these times,” writes Ciuntu. At the top of the list of favorite small towns is Fairbanks, Alaska, which is known for its northern lights, midnight sun and dog mushing. The natural wonderland of Moab, Utah—gateway to Canyonlands—comes in second among the most appealing small towns.

Lastly, the study also looked at natural destinations—places to really get away from it all. “It comes as no surprise that Yellowstone made the cut as an all-time favorite natural attraction,” writes Ciuntu. Three Colorado Rockies locations made this list, including Aspen at number two, plus Breckenridge and Vail. Some other highlights on the list include Bozeman, Montana and the scenic Glacier National Park.

Read on to see all four lists of what people are dreaming about right now—20 top destinations, 10 top beaches, 10 top small towns, 10 top natural destinations—and head here to see the methodology and more results from the study.

The 10 trendiest destinations you should visit around the world in 2019

The 10 trendiest destinations you should visit around the world in 2019

It might be less than a week into 2019, but it’s never too early to start mapping out your travel plans for the new year. And don’t worry if you’re unsure of where to go.

Travel website Kayak recently shared its list of the top trending travel destinations for 2019. The search engine analyzed more than 1.5 billion annual travel searches to find its data, and then compiled everything from hotel prices to weather statistics for each location.

Spanning the globe from Mexico to Indonesia, these are the 10 trendiest travel spots of 2019, according to Kayak.

10. Munich, Germany, will trend among tourists who love to view historic sights in the daytime, and indulge in fast-paced nightlife in the evening.

Marienplatz, the city’s central square, is one of Munich’s most popular spots.

Popular art galleries like SPERLING and Deborah Schamoni are likely to thank for the recent 34% increase in searches for Munich.

9. Known for its beautiful beaches and daring hiking trails, Maui, Hawaii, has something for every type of traveler.

If you’re hoping to travel from the island’s resorts to its museums and beaches, Kayak recommends renting a car. Of course, the island is large, and seeing Maui in its entirety might be difficult, but doing so will help you understand why searches for the spot have increased by 35%.

8. Rome, Italy, has seen a 39% increase in searches, likely thanks to its rich history and opportunities for sightseeing.

Rome is abundant with historic churches and ancient ruins.

If you choose Rome as your destination of choice this year, don’t be surprised to find a “service tax” on your receipt when dining. Tipping is not customary in Italy, so the fee is added in its place, according to Kayak.

7. Paris, France, continues to be one of the most highly searched travel destinations.

Kayak recommends visiting the Eiffel Tower and the Palace of Versailles.

The city is full of exceptional shopping, dining, and art, so it’s no surprise that Paris has recently garnered a 41% search increase from travelers.

5. With a 43% increase in searches, Guadalajara, Mexico is one of two Mexican cities to make Kayak’s list.

Hotels in Guadalajara are fairly inexpensive, sometimes costing as little as $72 per night.

The family-friendly city is home to book stores, galleries, and cafes, all of which stock high-quality items for surprisingly low prices, according to Kayak.

4. The Bahamas may be known for its dolphins and pink beaches, but the country has seen a 45% search increase thanks to its more underrated spots.

The country’s beaches are perfect for a relaxing getaway.

Instead of paying the 15% gratuity that most restaurants will charge, Kayak recommends visiting the farmer’s markets found throughout Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas.

3. Coffee fanatics are responsible for Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, becoming a trendy vacation spot.

The Vietnamese city has some excellent street food options.

At places like the Du Mien Garden Coffee shop, visitors sip their drinks while enjoying the location’s waterfalls and pools. The local business is one of many establishments that has boosted Ho Chi Minh’s searches by 49%.

2. Searches for Bali, Indonesia, have increased by 65% in recent months.

The trendy city is home to stunning nature views and high-end restaurants.

Visitors of Bali have a lot of entertainment options, ranging from clubs, to resorts, and luxurious restaurants like Padi Fine Dining.

1. Mexico City, Mexico, tops the list with a 73% search increase, becoming the trendiest travel destination for 2019.

The city’s architecture is extremely colorful.
