Where could I go for my winter vacation?

Hello Community!
I would love to go somewhere with warm climate in winter. But because I never was farer away from home I would need some advice from you.
Hopefully someone here could give me the one or other hint.

The lower latitudes are generally warm in the winter. Also, when it’s winter in one hemisphere, it’s summer in the other.

Which months specifically are you talking? That is more specific than winter, which happens at different times in different parts of the world.

Rowan and I were planning to go to Canada for 2 or 3 weeks in winter (June/July).

Unfortunately we won't be going anywhere for some time.

However, Canada is a nice place to spend some time during the chill of winter.

I assume you are talking about a bike tour in USA in winter, but some place warm. The attached map is a trip a friend and I did in February 2017, almost all was camping but we stayed at a hostel one night. The part of the trip over water was a ferry from Key West to Marco Island where we had left our vehicle. Started by going across Big Cyprus, then into Everglades and back tracked out, then down the Florida Keys to Key West. We did this before Irma, but by next winter they will probably have re-built most of what will be re-built.

We are retired and did not have time constraints, so we took our time and stayed at several campsites for more than one day. You might be in a bigger hurry than we were.

At times it was too warm for our tastes. But you wanted warm.

nothing wrong with starting threads, but this is your fourth one about bike holidays.

you've still failed to mention where you are located, what your interests are, what kind of touring you want to do, your spending budget, your time budget, or even whether you already have a bicycle.

pointless really for anyone to respond unless you can provide something, anything really, as a starting point.
