What to See
The Caribbean is drenched in the golden stuff at this time of year for a full 9 hours of sunshine a day. Relax on the white sands under shady palms, or get right into the action diving the turquoise waters, catch a game fish with a deep-sea fishing trip or explore the wilds of inland islands.
With all of the canals, gondolas and great restaurants Venice is surely the most romantic city in Europe. In February it can be a little grey but as that mist shrouds the iconic buildings and rolls over the waterways it seems to only add to the romance. From the 15th February get immersed in Carnevale – a celebration of Ventian arts and culture. For two weeks people fill the streets dressed in elaborate masks and costumes.
