Jennie, If you don't mind the cold, then you could consider coming up to Ontario to visit the Algonquin Park region, which is about 3 hours north of Toronto. It will be cold and there will be snow, but the area offers hiking, skating on lakes, cross-country skiing and warm fireside nights. There are some lovely towns within driving distance for you to explore.

Here's a site for accommodations in the Lake of Bays area, near to Algonquin. I can recommend both Beauview Cottages and Bondi Village Resort as good places to stay at a reasonable price.

Personally, I would avoid a Caribbean locale. Too busy and too expensive at that time of the year.

Wherever you go, remember that this is a busy time for airlines and there are often delays in flights. Lucy, Toronto
