Distance wise they are within 5 hours of nyc, but I'm not sure how you define zika free.
If there is even a slight cause to be concerned with zika then I would stay away.

So then the entire Caribbean is likely off limits.

In the new (useless) cdc map, the entire Caribbean is purple, which means it has had past zika cases with no updates. There are no countries singled out as having active outbreaks at this point.

However, if you look at the cdc page for Aruba, they've removed the level 2 advisory to avoid travel if pregnent so who knows.

So now that the Carribean is basically off-limits, what's the next best option?
I just did San Diego in the summer so don't want to go back there :(

Bermuda has no zika. It's not hot in the winter, however.

Looking for a warm place for winter break with eateries and hotels walk able to shul for Shabbos, I've never been to PHX or LAX, which would you choose?

Both are the same price currently.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Warmer then NYC is good enough it looks to be in 50's - 60's as a high.
