Looking to escape the icy clutches of British weather? In search of warmer, sunnier climes? Well look no further. We've put together a handy guide to which countries are hot during different months of the year, so you can enjoy that holiday in the sun at any time of year. All the research is done, so all you have to do is book that flight and start dreaming of sun, sand and sitting on your bum for a week.
Where’s hot in winter?
If you’re looking for a bit of winter sun, you’ve got two options: hop a plane to the Canary Islands, and enjoy the delights of Tenerife and Lanzarote, or prepare for a long haul flight. Brazil, Thailand and Mexico are all popular choices if you’re after some sunshine in January or February. The Caribbean’s another popular spot for sun seekers, too. Click on the links below for the cold hard facts about these hot holiday spots.
Where’s hot in spring?
If you’re looking for a spring beach holiday, try Thailand, Mexico or the Caribbean. Temperatures reach the early 30s there, and you could do a lot worse than sitting on a white sand beach with a cocktail in your hand. The temperature in Europe starts to creep up in May, so if you’re planning a trip to Turkey, Greece or Spain, you could bag a pre-summer bargain.
Where’s hot in summer?
Finally, Europe starts to sizzle. Majorca, Lanzarote and Dalaman are all popular summer destinations on this side of the equator, or if you’re looking to go a little further afield, Florida, Dubai and Singapore are all balmy options.

Where’s hot in autumn?
Ah, autumn. The leaves are dropping – and so is the mercury. Not to worry, though – you don’t need a scarf and hat in Mexico, Thailand or the Maldives, where it’s still nice and toasty, even as late as November.
