With seasons getting shorter and shorter each year, it's not uncommon to fall asleep and wake up to winter. Dream of a white Christmas as you nod off under a cerulean sky with this week's escape.

Get a four- ($549), five- ($673), or six-night stay ($797) for two in a deluxe ocean view room, plus all meals, drinks (including alcohol), resort activities, taxes and gratuities included at the all-inclusive Park Royal Cozumel Resort, from 15 November to 23 December, 2011; or 9 April to 30 June, 2012.

Or get a four- ($739), five- ($911), or six-night stay for two ($1,083) with the same perks from 3 January to 8 April, 2012.

Upon arrival, warm up to a bottle of complimentary wine and chocolate-covered strawberries as you bask in the ocean breeze off your private glass balcony, which overlooks the majestic waters of the Caribbean.

Each sun-drenched room boasts a king-size bed (or two doubles) with premium bedding and hypo-allergenic pillows, a granite and marble bathroom with separate vanity area, flat-screen cable TV, air conditioning, electronic key access and in-room safe.

This modern Mayan-themed resort is surrounded by a lush, tropical landscape, and it cosies up to one of Mexico's largest and most magnificent coral reefs. Pick up gear from the on-site dive shop and discover more than 500 species of tropical fish.

Thaw out under the sun playing a heated game of volleyball on a private, sandy beach; present your voucher for 50 percent off any treatment at the spa and give yourself the gift of ultimate indulgence; or, if you'd rather just chill, lounge around one of three crystal-clear pools as you lap up unlimited libations from the Bikini Shack poolside bar.

Come nightfall, wake up your taste buds at your choice of three world-class restaurants: the upscale El Italiano; the more casual El Mexicano; or the super-chill buffet-style spot, La Veranda.

With daily activities and nightly entertainment, you won't want to leave The Park Royal Cozumel. But if you do, take the short walk to Cozumel's downtown for a day of holiday shopping or hop over to Chankanaab National Park for an unforgettable swim with dolphins.

Plunging temperatures shouldn't be Claus for alarm. Do something nice for yourself and unwrap up today's escape.
