Warm Weather Spots: North America, Mexico & Caribbean

With winter approaching, we’ve been hard at work researching the best places to run in the warm weather spots that people travel to on holiday. In North America, it’s focused on Florida, Arizona, and southern California. We’ve also created running guides for the Cancun and Mayan Peninsula areas in Mexico, and for all the major Caribbean islands!

United States

Florida. We’ve developed a huge number of routes in Florida’s most popular vacation spots. Our favorite city for running in Florida is Tampa-St. Petersburg.  See our comprehensive Florida running guide, which features 12+ major cities, the Disney/Universal Studios area, and 200+ fantastic running routes.

Arizona. Often too hot for running in summer, the greater Phoenix area (including Scottsdale & Tempe) and Tuscon are becoming increasingly popular vacation spots in winter.

Southern California. While northern California tends to be cooler and wet, the weather in southern California is typically mild and sunny. Favorite spots include Santa Barbara and San Diego. We also have extensive coverage of the greater Los Angeles area, including Irvine/Orange County, Long Beach, & more. Palm Springs is also a great vacation — and running — destination.

Mexico & Caribbean

Our new guide to the Cancún/Mayan Riviera/Cozumel area features some great runs outside the resort area gates. We also have guides for the following islands: Aruba, Bermuda, Bahamas (Nassau), Cayman Islands, Cuba (Havana), the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Martinique, Puerto Rico (San Juan), the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. John, St, Thomas, & St. Croix), St. Lucia, Turks and Caicos.
