Best Places to Travel In December 2019

Whether you want to escape or embrace the snowy season, there are plenty of enchanting December travel options for you. Make your last trip of 2019 one to remember and choose from these eight best December travel destinations all over the world!

Galapagos Islands

In December the island is transitioning into summer so the temperature usually hovers around 70 degrees but there can be some rainy days. A little rain is worth is though especially since December is great for diving and seeing giant tortoise’s eggs hatch!

Quebec City

As expected, Canada is a little colder in December than the Galapagos Islands. However, the city has a lot of fun with the snow as it has a toboggan slide at Au 1884. What’s more festive than a toboggan ride and hot chocolate in December?


December in Dubai is a fantastic idea. The milder weather begins which makes it enjoyable to walk around and explore the city. You’ll also find great deals at shops around the city once the Dubai Shopping Festival begins after Christmas.

Rotorua New Zealand

After a long year, a dip in Rotura’s hot springs will probably sound quite nice. Visitors can also immerse themselves in Maori culture. You can try some of the delicious food or for a more permanent reminder of your trip, you could get a Ta Moka tattoo!.

Yucatan, Mexico

Early in December the Yucatan Peninsula hasn’t hit peak tourist season yet. This is a great time to explore usually crowded places like Las Colorada Lake and book a good restaurant reservation for some delicious Mayan cuisine. The town of Valladolid is known for having tasty and unique foods.

Siem Reap Cambodia

There is beautiful weather in Cambodia in December. Temperatures range from 70 to 80 degrees during the day. This is the perfect temperature for exploring the waterfalls atop Kulen Mountain in Kulen National Park.

Frankfurt, Germany

A trip to Germany is the best way to get into the Christmas spirit. It is a highly debated topic of which German city (Nuremberg, Frankfurt, or Berlin) has the best Christmas market. So why not travel around Germany this December and decide on your own!?

Death Valley Nevada

Normally Death Valley National Park has scorching hot temperatures. If you travel here in December though, the temperature is a cool 40 degrees. If you get bored of the peace and quiet in Death Valley, take the two and a half hour drive to Las Vegas for some lively entertainment.
