So you’re tired of the cold weather? Can’t say that I blame you. Logically, then, you’d love to get a break from the bone-chilling cold, right? Unfortunately, there’s that four letter word that strikes fear in the hearts of those who are either starting, trying to start, or growing their family: Zika. Yes, the virus is something you should still consider when picking a vacation destination.
Zika is not something you want to catch, especially if the you or your significant other are planning/hoping to get pregnant soon. That is why I have compiled a list of 6 warm-weather Zika-free destinations you can escape to.
Can’t go wrong here. Especially if you want to stay within the United States.
This place not only has great beaches, as well as snorkeling and diving opportunities, but it’s closer (for most) than Hawaii.
Not too far away, plenty of history, the opportunity to head (a little easier, at least) to Easter Island, and no Zika. What’s not to like?
There’s plenty of good about this place: there’s no Zika, it has plenty of beaches, and they like putting shrimp on the barbie. The bad? Basically everything else is trying to kill you.
Certainly worth the visit. Probably deserves it’s own trip, but if you don’t make it to that part of the world often you can combine the trip to Australia with a trip to New Zealand.
Arguably one of the best places to honeymoon, this place has plenty of overwater bungalows and no Zika. A win-win in my book.
Unfortunately this list is fluid. So I would highly recommend checking this website to confirm the country you plan on visiting is still Zika free. But these destinations are certainly good options for those looking for a winter getaway without putting your health at risk.
