In February, the situation is similar to that of January: in North Africa it's winter, on the west coast the sea is a bit cold down to the latitude of northern and central Senegal. On the coast of the Gulf of Guinea, it's hot and there is little rain, but the sky is often cloudy in the easternmost part. In Eastern African countries near the Equator (Kenya, Tanzania) there is little rain and the sun shines, although it's still hot and muggy.
Where to go: Benin, Cote d'Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Djibouti, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Senegal (south), Tanzania (north), Togo, Zanzibar


It's winter, and in south Asia the north-east monsoon prevails, bringing fine weather, except on the more exposed slopes.
Where to go: Burma, Philippines (western side), India, Maldives, Malaysia (Kota Baharu, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu), Oman, Thailand (Koh Samui, Pattaya, Phuket), Vietnam (center and south), Yemen

North and Central America

In Florida, it can sometimes be cold, especially in the northern and central part; in Yucatan, cloudy, cool and windy days are possible, with some rain. In Central America it is hot, but some slopes exposed to the northeast trade winds are still quite rainy, though less than in January.
Where to go: Belize, Costa Rica (Pacific coast), El Salvador, Guatemala (both coasts), Honduras (both coasts), Mexico (Acapulco), Nicaragua (Pacific coast), Panama (south side)

Caribbean Sea

The situation is similar to that of January, even though the temperature begins to rise a little. On the other hand, in some areas the rains due to the trade winds become less frequent. It's generally a good month, but in the northernmost part there can be windy and cloudy days when the cool wind called El Norte blows from the United States. On the northern slopes of the larger islands and on the Windward Islands, the trade winds may bring some showers. The warmest and sunniest islands are therefore the southern ones (Leeward Antilles).
Where to go: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Colombia (Caribbean Sea), Dominica, Dominican Republic (south and east coast), Grenada, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Leeward Antilles (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao), Martinique, Montserrat, Puerto Rico, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Lucia, Saint Martin/Sint Maarten, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos, U.S. Virgin Islands, Venezuela (Maracaibo and islands).

South America

It's summer in the Southern Hemisphere. On the west coast the sea is quite cold up to central Chile, while it becomes cool but overall acceptable in northern Chile.
Where to go: Brazil (Rio de Janeiro), Chile (north), Peru


It's summer in the Southern Hemisphere, so at tropical latitudes it's hot, it rains and tropical cyclones may form. In Australia, you can still go to Perth, which has a Mediterranean climate.
Where to go: Australia (Perth), Guam, Marshall Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Micronesia, Palau
