There's a time every winter when the cold loses its nostalgic charm. The city grays, the snow browns, and we slip into the sludge trudge: head down, shoulders tense, feet frozen. But this Escape to Puerto Vallarta, on the Mexican Riviera—where the average winter temperature is 85 degrees—offers a chance to recall the relaxation of summer.

Break out your Bermuda shorts and a straw fedora, and fly south to Velas Vallarta Suite Resort for an all-inclusive four-night stay for two adults between now and December 20, 2012 ($1,199) or between January 3 and March 31, 2013 ($1,308).

Pop open a complimentary bottle of wine and sprawl out on the ocean-view or garden-side balcony of your one-bedroom suite. The teak-furnished suite weaves Huichol cross-stitch tapestries with modern Mexican art, and it's equipped with a full kitchen and dining room—though you'll hardly need them with two on-site gourmet restaurants and another beachfront eatery serving views of the ocean and Sierra Madre Mountains alongside Spanish, Mexican, and international preparations of fresh seafood and steak.

If you gather the gumption to take a break from lying out by the emerald waters of Banderas Bay, or you find a way to pull yourself from the poolside Aqua Bar, slide into sandals and explore what Puerto Vallarta has to offer on a day-long shopping tour of the city, where you'll visit the Arches and Cathedral and the boutiques, jewelers, and souvenir shops of the Rio Cuale Market.

Or, leave the city behind on a cultural and tequila tour, and ride northwest in an air-conditioned bus toward the town of Las Palmas, where you'll find views of the countryside and its farms and plantations. Next, during a tour of a tequila factory, you'll get a chance to see how the national liquor of Mexico is made, and you'll even taste a few samples.

Before you pack up and fly north, where things are cold and stiff, saunter down to the spa for a pair of included 50-minute relaxation massages to loosen your muscles and mind once more; perhaps the sludge trudge of winter will melt into a December dawdle.
