Where is hot in February

Whether you want to whisk a loved one off for a romantic Valentine’s Day break or take the whole family away on an adventure, February is a great month to fly away. The hot-footed energy of Miami and Cuba will help put the spring back into your step after a few months of braving the winter and Orlando has everything you need to fill a family holiday full of fun.

Closer to home, the pretty volcanic island of Lanzarote is still warm enough to wander around in your flip flops, but the crowds have yet to make it to the beaches.
