Luckily there are many countries where it is still hot with beautiful sunshine during winter. Now you are asking which countries are hot in winter? I will give you some ideas.
Jamaica has hot weather the whole year round, therefore it is an ideal destination for your vacation. Summers are the hottest, but during the winter there is still lovely 24-25 degrees Celsius. The sea is warm during the year even in the winter it can reach 27 degrees. February and March are months with the lowest precipitation. The best time to visit is from November till April.
Dubai or the whole United Arab Emirates is a place where there is no winter. There is a lot of sunshine all year round with high temperatures and a limited amount of rain during winter. As UAE is such a hot country, you wouldn’t go there during summer as you can’t stay out for long. Therefore, many people visit Dubai during winter time when it is cooler and temperatures drop to 25-27 degrees Celsius during the day and about 18 degrees during the night. Therefore, Dubai is a great beach destination. Your holiday can’t be destroyed by bad weather. The slight rain can appear in the winter but usually doesn’t last longer than 10 minutes.
