You spent months preparing for the holidays—buying gifts, visiting family, cooking mountains of food. And whether you loved the excitement or couldn’t wait for it to be done, you just might finally have some free time on your hands. Now is a great time to travel and get reinvigorated in a new destination or a familiar, comfortable retreat. Below, see some of our favorite places for breaking out of the post-holiday blues.
Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
If your holidays were spent buried under snow, you deserve to get away to warm weather and sunny skies. With white-sand beaches and vibrant blue water all year round, Grand Cayman is about as close to paradise as it gets. Diverse wildlife makes the scuba diving here among the best in the world, and the many acclaimed restaurants offer a wide range of cuisines. Inspirato travelers have 10 homes to choose from, including four luxury condos at The Ritz-Carlton located right on the iconic Seven Mile Beach. View all Grand Cayman accommodations.
Aspen and Snowmass Village, Colorado
With so much going on—and an abundance of sweets—the holidays are notorious for derailing even the best laid fitness plans. Get your adrenaline going again in an outdoorsy destination like Snowmass Village or Aspen, Colorado. These neighboring ski meccas boast acres of terrain for all skill levels, as well as snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, hiking—and plenty of après-ski bars for toasting to a day on the slopes. Inspirato’s homes in the area include everything from a historic townhouse in downtown Aspen to spacious lodges that can fit up to 12 people. View all Aspen and Snowmass Village accommodations.
Real del Mar, Mexico
Family time, meeting up with friends, shopping for gifts—there’s a lot of demands over the holidays. Get away from it all in sunny Real del Mar, an exclusive gated resort about 30 minutes outside of Puerto Vallarta. Here it’s easy to blissfully forget about the outside world, with amenities such as a private beach club and spa right on-site. Even better, Inspirato’s five homes in Real del Mar feature private pools and gorgeous views of the ocean. View all Real del Mar accommodations.
Palm Springs, California
Now that your schedule is finally clear, take some time to get back into your favorite activities—or to do nothing but pamper yourself. It’s your choice in Palm Springs, California. The consistently warm weather makes golfing on the 100+ courses in the Palm Springs and Coachella Valley area a year-round activity. Or you can indulge in a treatment at one of the dozens of luxurious spas in the valley. Inspirato’s homes in the Palm Springs area are close to all of the above.

Rosemary Beach, Florida
While many people spend the holidays with their family, some people don’t get a chance to reconnect until later. Rosemary Beach, Florida, is a great place for gathering with friends or family you might have missed over the holiday season. The master-planned community is renowned for its family-friendly amenities, old-fashioned charm, and of course, sugar-sand beaches along the Gulf of Mexico coastline. It’s easy to get everyone you love under one roof when traveling with Inspirato. Our five homes in Rosemary Beach and nearby WaterColor Resort range in size from five to seven bedrooms.
