Oh the weather outside is frightful... Get away from the depths of a British winter in Mexico, with its wonderful combination of chic boutique hotels, some of the most historically significant ancient sites 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 and the Philippines.

Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year but that doesn't necessarily pertain to the weather. Why not spend the festive season in the Caribbean instead?
