Now is the time to escape those drab mornings and dark winter afternoons and get your fill of vitamin D and hot winter sun. Swap your beanie for a bikini. Exchange mulled wine for margaritas. Trade in your slippers for skinny-dipping. And why not make it a guilt-free, CV enhancing experience by combining a warm climate with improving your language skills? To check the best weather for the month you want to travel alongside the number of hours you are happy to fly use The Telegraph’s Heatseeker. Here are our top five locations for winter sun and language learning in 2017:

Winter Sun for Spanish

Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica

manuel antonio

 

Costa Rica is the piece of Central America that most resembles paradise – and it has some tough competition. Boasting warm weather, a chilled vibe and the advantage of the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea – which can both be seen from the top of the Irazú volcano – you will return from Costa Rica a new person. Or you may choose to not return at all.

Manuel Antonio is a 3 hour drive or 25 minute flight from Costa Rica’s capital San Jose. Part of a National Park, on Costa Rica’s central Pacific coast, Manuel Antonio offers rugged rainforest, white-sand beaches and magical coral reefs. The vast diversity of tropical plants and wildlife it offers is one of its greatest draws and you are bound to come across the much photographed three-toed sloth, as well as monkeys and hundreds of bird species.

Cactus Language offers the unique experience of being able to study Spanish in a school that overlooks the pristine waters of Manuel Antonio, situated between the beach and the rainforest. With Spanish courses in Manuel Antonio from £310 per week for 20 hours and a wide range of accommodation options including homestay with local families, this is an opportunity not just for a piece of winter sun but to immerse yourself in a world a million miles away from what you will find outside your office window.

Antigua, Guatemala

antigua guatemala

But Guatemala, with its gorgeous beaches, Mayan ruins, fabulous food and super-friendly locals, it a rising star and offers everything you could want from a South American adventure, minus the hoards of backpackers. Better to get there before everyone else does.

On the list of must-see places in Guatemala, Antigua is a small city surrounded by volcanoes and full of Spanish colonial buildings. The town is extremely pretty and provides a perfect insight into local life. You cannot fail to feel welcomed by the locals, which is also doubles as a great opportunity to practise your Spanish!

Make sure you have time to do both.
