Oh the weather outside is frightful...one of the best places to get away from the depths of a British winter, Mexico has a delicious combo of top class beach hotels, a smattering of some of the best ancient sites anywhere in Latin America, an excellent climate and some fabulous diving in December.

Diving in December

Closer to home, while it won't be boiling anymore, the Middle East is still the closest world-class diving with guaranteed sunshine from the UK. Further afield the sun and excellent visibility should be returning to the Maldives and it doesn't get much better than that for a winter diving break. Same goes for the Caribbean, Western Thailand and the Philippines.

The time of festive cheer. And perishing cold. Why not celebrate Christmas with calypso, cricket, diving and cocktails in the Caribbean?

Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat just happens to sit right on the bullseye of the Coral Triangle, which is the area of highest marine biodiversity on earth. With more species of fish and coral than anywhere else on our planet, the diving here is jaw-dropping.
