Not many countries in the world are home to such drab, dreary and damp weather conditions as the UK during winter and this alone has been reason enough for countless British citizens to relocate abroad. After all, what better way to escape these gloomy surroundings than to move to somewhere with a few more days’ worth of sunshine? Here at Santa Fe Relocation, we’re taking a look at the top countries with the best weather in the world, to help you to decide whether relocating is the solution for you.
Located just off the coast of West Africa, Cape Verde is situated in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and, as you can imagine, is home to an incredibly enviable climate. With temperatures middling out at around 25°C year-round, Cape Verde’s remarkably pleasant weather makes it the ideal place to take a break from the gloomy alternative found in the UK. What’s more, the tourism industry has only recently made its way to the small group of islands, meaning you won’t be surrounded by holidaymakers and you can enjoy yourself in peace.
Brazil is a nation that prides itself on beautiful beaches, breathtaking cathedrals and, of course, magnificent weather; not many people would pass up the opportunity to live in the South American country. Temperatures actually reach their peak in February, with the average heat in its capital of Rio De Janiero reaching highs of 27°C. The weather doesn’t get much worse during Brazil’s coldest months either, with the capital’s temperature only falling a grand total of 6°C to 21°C in July.

If you want to take a break from sunning on the beach, there’s plenty of substance to match Cyprus’s sunshine, it is home to a number of ancient sites that you can visit to truly get a feel for the country.
