We just got back from Anguilla and it was beautiful. Lots of great restaurants and gorgeous beaches. It’s a very quiet island so it depends on what you want.

Penang in Malaysia. We went for Chinese New Year once (end of Feb that year) and it was AMAZING. It was a bit humid yes, but nothing too bad. It is an island too so you do get some nice sea breezes.

We stayed at the Rasa Sayang resort in the Rasa Wing. It was a bit more expensive but was adults only. For the extra money you got a nicer room, a choice to have breakfast in the posh a la carte restaurant (you could go to the amazing buffet if you wanted) afternoon tea (so nice) and at 7pm free all you can eat drinks and hot nibbles – drinks included sparkling wine. You also had access to an adults only pool where you got free soft drinks a cold towel twice a day and a fruit kebab twice a day.

We LOVED this holiday. The spa in the hotel is amazing. We only went out of the hotel once to do a hike through a national park which was nice (but hot) but we were only there a few days before heading back to Hong Kong.

Would also suggest Hong Kong at that time of year. It is a pleasant warm. You might need a  light jacket some days but that is all.

Costa Rica is awesome. You can hit the coast for a few days for beaches and then go to Monteverde and Arenal for the rainforest, volcano/hot springs, and adventure (ziplining, rafting, canyoning). 

Cartagena and the surrounding area is also amazing and very inexpensive. I would stay for a few days in the historic part of town and then head to Santa Marta.

I did thailand for my hm at the end of feb/beg march and it was awesome! I don’t think we got a single day of rain. Its cheap enough once youre there that you can do half island and half something else (bangkok or chiang mai maybe).

Also just thought we went to Sri Lanka in mid March and that was lovely. We did a week touring the Island with a driver and a week at the beach sunsetsnmargaritas :

sunsetsnmargaritas :  US be here and we just got back from our honeymoon in the Maldives.  It is super far for most Americans, but we wanted a once-in-a-lifetime trip, and this was it!  February is the driest and most sunny month in the Maldives, but that also means it’s probably more expensive.  If you’re wanting a beautiful island, there’s no place more perfect ๐Ÿ™‚ In case you’re wondering it was a 13 hour flight from Boston to Dubai, and then a 4 hour flight from Dubai to Male.  Our island was also an hour boat ride from there (so lots of traveling).  For 6 nights, 7 days it cost us around $5,200 for the all-inclusive, over-water bungalow.

Could you make it over to the Canary Islands? I’ve not been there but my dad traveled there a few years back and said it is truly the prettiest place he’s ever been!

 Have you thought about Greece?. We both liked the idea of an island vacation but also wanted a unique experience instead of just beachside the whole time. We are going to do a few days in Athens and the rest in the isles :).

SE Asia is not overly humid at that time of year. I’ve gone probably 15+ times (Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore, India) anywhere between early November – early April and it has been fine. I would say that after mid-March it starts getting a lot warmer, but if you are going in February you should be fine.
