Travel Insider: March 2018

March means on thing… Spring is in the air! Oh how we have waited for the snow to melt, for the rain to dry up, and the wind to turn to sun. March is a great time to travel, just before Easter holidays, when the deals are still enticing. We have rounded up the top places to visit this month.

The Alps

There is still time to head to the slopes while the snow is still a plenty. Head to Megève, where the Four Seasons have opened their latest hotel. Enjoy an afternoon on the powder, and return back to the hotel to make the most of the wine cellar, filled with bottles from their vineyards.  Its 55 rooms in three interconnecting chalets feature plush interiors, with sheepskin-covered armchairs and fires crackling. It is the perfect ski experience.

Madrid

Barcelona’s big sister comes alive in March. When the clocks go forward, warmth sweeps the city and loosens everything up. Madrid’s beautiful parks burst into bloom as temperatures soar to around 20ºC . There are many things to explore, such as its world-class galleries, designer boutiques and unparalleled cuisine. There’s great traditional tapas to be had, and super swanky cocktails to be drank. There are plenty of affordable deals here this time of year, so make the most of it.

Puerto Rico

Start your month the right way, with an endless beach party on the shores of Puerto Rico. Only two hours from Miami, this Caribbean isle is known for its sandy white beaches, and notable nightlife. March is the best month to experience island life. The beaches are not too crowded, and the weather is the perfect temperature.
