February is the perfect month to travel. The weather is still lousy for many Americans, but the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Years holidays have died down, bringing better travel deals before spring break season. Valentine s Day sees a spike in travel traffic and cruises, but crowds are generally lighter during this month because it falls right between two school and work breaks.
Many of the world s best beaches enjoy year-round warmth, but if you want sunny skies, you need to plan your travel around the dry seasons. Mexican beaches in Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Maroma are ideal destinations in February, with temperatures in the 70s and less than an inch of rain in most areas. In Huatulco, you ll arrive during one of the clearest diving months to see rays, octopus, urchins and tropical fish. At Costa Rica s Tamarindo Beach, the temperature is 80 to 100 degrees F year-round, but dry February also features the Puntarenas Carnival. February is the driest month for a trip to the Bahamas, says Lonely Planet, with average temperatures ranging from 65 to 77 degrees F. Britain s Telegraph recommends finding February sun in Egypt, Andalusia, the Caribbean islands, Kerala and the Maldives.
