With the holidays coming up, sometimes the best way to deal with the cold is to escape. Luckily, not every part of the world is experiencing cold climate and there are several destinations that would be a perfect escape for this Christmas season. Jettly is here to help you decide which Top 10 Private Jet Destinations for Christmas you should charter your next private flight this holiday season.
1) Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Trying to escape the cold weather? Look no further than Puerto Vallarta for your next private jet charter. A beautiful resort town, Puerto Vallarta is known for its beautiful beaches, water sports and of course, its nightlife. It is also home to some beautiful cobblestone streets, churches and great shopping – as well as a great art scene, with contemporary sculptures around the beachside promenade, El Malecón. Puerto Vallarta could be a great destination to enjoy some sun and relaxation during this holiday season.
2) Honolulu, Hawaii
December is a cold and wintery time for much of the United States, but Hawaii remains a great option for enjoying this season while enjoying the warmth. Honolulu is a great place to escape to for Christmas, as the city truly enjoys the season and hosts a great celebration. Visitors in Hawaii during this time can enjoy the festive vibes of the city during the month-long Honolulu City Lights. Most of the celebrations are centered around this Christmas display, which includes an opening parade, live music, and of course, a huge Christmas tree. Honolulu also makes sure to get Santa in the (warm) Christmas spirit with their Shaka Santa – Mr. Claus decides to go casual with red shorts and an open shirt. The Shaka Santa is the main highlight in the downtown area, and sits next to his wifi, Tutu Mele clad in mu’umu’u.
3) Reykjavik, Iceland
Looking to go somewhere a little off the beaten path this holiday season via private jet charter? Reykjavik may be a great option then, since the town celebrates its holiday season with a few peculiarities sprinkled in to keep visitors intrigued. Their Christmas celebrations include quite a few highlights such as the 13 “Yuletide Lads” – essentially scruffy Santas who, according to tales, bring gifts to children who are nice for 13 nights leading up to Christmas. In Ingolfstrog, the Yule Town Christmas market sets itself up this time of the year. This includes rows of small, gorgeous huts where visitors can find all sorts of items including decorations, treats and gifts for Christmas. Not to mention, winter season means that there is a good chance you will be able to catch the Northern Lights, which makes the experience all the more magical.
4) Prague, Czech Republic
Prague is a beautiful city year-round, but it is extra magical during Christmas. Romantic lights, Christmas markets and local delicacies make it a fun and unique place to visit via private jet charter during the holidays. Make sure to sample local delicacies at the various Christmas markets that set up shop in the historical squares. Some food to look out for include Czech muffins, mulled wine and barbecued pork – just to name a few.
5) Chicago, Illinois
Another great US option to explore for the holiday season is Chicago. The city tends to go all out in its Christmas celebrations, so it may be worthwhile to brave the cold to experience the city during this time. Chicago’s Magnificent Mile gets a full holiday makeover with the millions of lights strung up around it during the time. There is also the Christkindmarket, a German crafts market set up outdoors for visitors and city-dwellers alike to enjoy. Additionally, there is also Navy Pier’s Winter Wonderfest, a holiday-themed amusement park complete with an indoor skating rink that finds itself bustling at this time of year,
6) Koh Samui, Thailand
If the United States and Europe don’t appeal as much, Thailand could also be a great option for a Christmas escape via private jet charter. Islands in Thailand are a fabulous option for those interested more in sand and surf this time of year, and Koh Samui is one of the most beautiful ones out there. Relax on the beach with its white sand and rustic charm – maybe get on a hammock for added relaxation and enjoy its turquoise beaches. Don’t forget to make sure to explore the island and its notable super spas.
Bermuda is also a great option for those interested in beaches rather than snow this holiday season. The island famously houses pink beaches, and pink houses with a Caribbean tinge to its locale. Some of the famous pink beaches include South Shore and Horseshoe Bay, which are famed for its pink-sand beaches – a truly unique destination for this winter season.
8) New York City, New York
Of all the cities in the world, New York City is the most famed for its Christmas celebrations. From the tree at Rockefeller Center (with ice-skating to boot), to the lit up Empire State building, there is something for everyone to enjoy when visiting New York City. The city famously houses a Norway spruce tree between 69-100 feet every year, decorated with close to 30,000 lights and topped off with a 550-pound weighing star. There is no city quite like New York during Christmas time, and is definitely something worth experiencing at least once.
9) Old San Juan, Puerto Rico
Interested in escaping the cold but staying local to the US? San Juan may be a great option then for the holiday season. San Juan goes all out for Christmas season, starting about two weeks ahead of time. The city is packed with holiday treats and delicacies, coquitos for guests (eggnog type cocktails that are made with rum and coconut milk) and of course, salsa bands performing beloved holiday carols.
10) Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Another great option for the holiday season is Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Known for its stretch of beaches and impossibly clear waters, Punta Cana is a great locale to escape cold winter season. Visitors can enjoy lavish resorts, and a host of adventure activities such as zip-lining, kayaking, wind-surfing and sailing while enjoying the sunny weather.
