3 Reasons to Celebrate the Holidays at Dorado Beach

Christmas in Dorado

Want to get away this holiday season? Here are a few reasons to consider Dorado Beach as your go-to holiday destination.

1. Warm Weather Winters

You can expect the weather in December at Dorado Beach to reach highs around 84°, with lows around 73°. Need we say more? December also officially marks the end of the hurricane season. Meaning you can relax at East Beach or West Beach, where you can enjoy the 81° ocean waters all “winter” long. Chill out by the pool, hit the links at one of the top luxury golf resorts, or enjoy exciting watersport adventures. And be sure to send some photos to your family up north and friends for good measure.

PS. If you’re imagining Santa Claus lounging on the golden sand beaches with an Aloha shirt, you’re not far off. He’s actually wearing a guayabera.

2. Make the Holidays More Relaxing

In a perfect world, spending the holidays with family would be a stress-free breeze. Often the reality involves more time running around trying to cross the items off your list before time runs out and traveling back and forth to see family. There’s simply not enough time to relax. Experts even note that more people get admitted to the hospital for stress-related reasons during the holidays than during any other time of year. Thankfully, the beach is one of the best places one could go to relax. This year gift serenity with the most relaxing day ever at Spa Botanico, a tranquil haven that was named as a top Forbes Travel Guide’s Most Luxurious Spas in the world.

3. Now is the Right Time for New Traditions

Don’t let the holidays burn you out. Swap the Christmas tree for a palm tree. Exchange the retail chaos with a trip to lively markets with delicious food on an island where the only ice is in your drink. The traditions and joy that comes around the holidays certainly aren’t exclusive to cold weather. You don’t need a fire and eggnog to get that warm and fuzzy feeling you get during the holidays. Being surrounded by your loved ones making new memories can provide you with the same feeling. Still, it probably won’t hurt if those holiday memories take place on warm breezy nights with a little Coquito.

In addition to Christmas and New Year’s, Puerto Rico also keeps the holiday season rolling with Three King’s Day, or Los Reyes, on January 6. The holiday celebrates the gospel of when the three wise men visited Jesus to bring gold, frankincense, and myrrh. On the island, this is the day when children open their Christmas gifts and the time when adults enjoy the most festive night of the year. The holiday features big parades, festivals, and an island-wide party. The festivities are notorious in the city of San Juan, but the holiday celebrations span to every town and household on the island. To experience the festival for yourself, book your stay today.

You don’t have to leave all of your favorite holiday traditions behind. Bring the kids to spend time with Santa during Brunch, or attend our annual Gingerbread House Workshop. And for more sophisticated evenings? Convenience meets culinary excellence during holiday dining events at Dorado Beach.
