If you've already had a look at warm winter destinations in the US but fancy a trip abroad, consider then, heading to the Southern Hemisphere.

The thing to remember about the Southern Hemisphere (i.e. Australia and Peru) and the Northern Hemisphere (i.e.North America, Europe, China and Japan) is that seasons are inverted so, you'll be vacationing during their low season which means cheaper airfare, fewer crowds and affordable hotel accommodation.

Below, I have for you some of the best destinations in February in the Southern Hemisphere to enjoy a great vacation.

Costa Rica

New Zealand

A general misconception about New Zealand is that it is the same country as Australia.

There are certainly similarities between the two countries, but New Zealand retains many unique cultural differences and traditions that sets it apart from Australia such as the Maori culture.
