Warm-weather getaways for every traveler

From the Caribbean and Mexico to California and Florida, these warmer climes make it easy to get outside and embrace the sunshine. | By Tanvi Chheda | March 17, 2023

Celebrate the sun by booking a getaway to one of these warm-weather destinations. Guaranteed to please, these must-visit locations are where powdery beaches, sunset sails, urban green spaces, hiking trails, Michelin-starred dining and golf courses await.

For families: Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

The largest of the Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman is ideal for a kid-friendly warm-weather getaway. Would-be adventurers will delight in the island's beach play, water sports and conservation-minded wildlife experiences. Base your brood at the all-suite Hampton by Hilton Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach for a convenient, centrally located base during your stay — it’s just 43 steps from the sand, and close to restaurants and shops.

For friends: Tulum, Mexico

Grab your gang of friends and head to chic Tulum, on the eastern shores of the Yucatan Peninsula, for outdoor adventures, history and a slice of the jet-set life.

For the solo traveler: San Francisco

Gorgeous pastel-hued Victorians, world-famous museums, top restaurants, neighborhoods to wander and an urban green space that’s been designated as a National Park — San Francisco lives up to its hype. Enjoy a quiet moment to yourself as you take in views of downtown alongside locally inspired fare and cocktails at Canopy by Hilton San Francisco SoMa’s Shelby’s Rooftop lounge, conveniently located in the bustling SoMa district.

For couples: Aruba, Netherlands Antilles

Think palm trees, shimmering turquoise waters, miles of sand and your person's hand in yours while on your next warm-weather getaway to Aruba.

For the elevated explorer: Orlando, Florida

If living your best life involves golf courses — including the stunning 18-hole championship course at Waldorf Astoria Orlando — Michelin-starred restaurants, boating and retail therapy, then sunny Orlando is calling your name.

Whether you’re island-bound or heading for the warmth of the South, a dose of sunshine goes a long way. So, grab the golf clubs and swimwear, and don’t forget sunscreen for your next warm-weather getaway.
