A superb ski and beach combination due to well matched travel seasons, this is a great combination for an active family or couple - Vail's bright white snow followed by the Yucatan's white sand beaches.

  1. Fly to Denver

  2. Days 1-6: Vail and Beaver Creek

    You ski and sun itinerary will start by flying into Denver International Airport, from here you will be transferred up to Vail by private vehicle. We suggest spending five days skiing in the epic ski resort of Vail, arguably the best ski resort in the world for a family or a group of mixed abilities.

    The slopes have something for everyone from beginner to expert and the superlative snow record makes for some mouth-watering skiing. The resort has it all, great accommodation, quality restaurants, an impressive service based ethos and even charm that is often absent from purpose built resorts. The pedestrianised streets are packed with bars, restaurants and boutiques to enjoy after a hard (or even an easy) day on the mountain.

    Accommodation: The Sebastian (5 nights)

  3. Fly Denver to Cancun

  4. Days 6-12: Riviera Maya

    While Colorado's resorts are some of the sunniest, after a week of skiing you may be yearning to swap white snow and blue skies for white sand and turquoise water. The Northern Hemisphere winter is a great time to visit Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. Direct flights make heading south straightforward. A swim in the Caribbean and an afternoon in the sun should ease any aching legs and sailing, diving and snorkelling, not to mention golf awaits on the Riviera Maya. If you can drag yourself away, nearby ancient ruins could have your children gazing in wonder.

    Accommodation: Rosewood Mayakoba (6 nights)

  5. Fly from Cancun
