While the traditional luau and hula are prevalent year-round, locals usher in the holidays in early December with the Honolulu City Lights tradition of live music, parades and a 63-foot pine tree.

On the second week of December, locals and guests alike can partake in the Haleiwa Christmas Parade on the North Shore, which boasts floats, bands, hula dancers and beauty queens.

Rest assured most restaurants and nightclubs are open on Christmas Day, so you can leave the stress of cooking and entertaining behind. Read more and book your Cancun vacation.
While many travel to Los Cabos to enjoy some beachside relaxation, others find that the holidays are a great time to participate in world-class sport fishing. Popular catches include snapper, mahi-mahi, yellowfin tuna, wahoo and cabrilla. During the holidays, striped and blue marlin are especially abundant in the waters of Cabo San Lucas. But if fishing isn’t exactly your thing, you may want to start a new tradition: whale-watching. Every December, locals and guests can witness whales migrating from the cold Bering Sea to the warmer waters of Baja. Five different kinds of whales can be found in Los Cabos at this time, including the humpback whale and grey whale. Read more and book your Los Cabos vacation.
