Holiday hotspots change every year, here are the top picks for 2014:

Cancun, Mexico

Cancun is probably Mexico’s best known beach resort, and the hotels are engaged in a concerted effort to increase uptake, with many offering significant price reductions. The resort has recently undergone a period of regeneration, with the beaches boosted with over a billion extra gallons of sand which has significantly widened the beach. And Cancun is not just for sun seekers - there are plenty of ancient Mayan ruins to visit in the area, a visit to which helps to impart a sense of the ‘true’ unspoilt Mexico.

Costa Rica

This small but perfectly formed Latin American country, which is ideally and picturesquely situated between the Caribbean and the Pacific oceans, has long been a firm favourite for those interested in nature, noted as it is for its stunning unspoilt scenery and plethora of different species of rare flora and fauna. However, it is now becoming popular with mainstream tourists, keen to sample the idyllic beach life plus the variety of exciting tours into the interior that are on offer.

The Dominican Republic

For decades, this cheap and cheerful Spanish Caribbean resort was regarded solely as an all-inclusive destination, with few tourists venturing outside of the purpose built complexes. However this amazing place has so much more to offer – with its mile upon mile of dramatic unspoilt landscape – including the shared (with Haiti) island of Hispaniola – and a rich, fascinating history that spreads back to the time of its discovery by Columbus and even further. Over the last few years, the country has undergone a significant period of development, which has seen the building of boutique hotels, classy resorts and luxury villas, plus several well-appointed golf courses and other top end sporting facilities. The Cap Cana region has benefited most from these improvements and is now being heralded as the new luxury destination, with all the holiday facilities and infrastructure that even the pickiest of guests could wish for.

Gran Canaria

For those seeking to combine a sun-drenched holiday with a spot of plastic surgery – Gran Canaria is the perfect destination. Several well regarded new clinics and hospitals have recently sprung up all over the island and have proved themselves well set up to cater for English visitors, with services offered at far more attractive prices than back in the UK. This new rebranding is sure to boost Gran Canaria's position in the holiday destination league tables.
