One of the best times to visit the Caribbean islands is February. It’s a popular time to visit as it’s in the middle of peak travel times, which means there will be great weather, a vibrant energy from all the visitors, and a lot of opportunities to enjoy yourself.
But because it’s during peak travel time, prices will be a bit high and you will need extensive planning, no matter which Caribbean island you end up choosing to go to.
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos in February
Providenciales in Turks and Caicos is a strong contender as one of the best Caribbean islands you can go to during February. In terms of natural conditions, you’ll be hard pressed to find anything better than a February vacation.
TCI Weather in February
Providenciales weather in February is great. It’s one of the drier months and the temperature is at a comfortable 85°-90°F (29°-32°C). Mosquitos aren’t very common unless there’s the unlikely event of heavy rains and flooding
TCI Prices in February
Because February is just past the the middle of peak travel season (December to April), prices start coming down. However, the Turks and Caicos tourism industry is till in full swing and every business is operating at 100%.
TCI Activities in February
The average wind speed during February is actually higher than normal, which makes kiteboarding an excellent activity for a February vacation on Providenciales.
Since Turks and Caicos is such a hotspot for kiteboarding, it’s easy to find PASA and IKO certified kiteboarding instructors with decades of experience. It won’t take long for beginners to get a good run or an advanced intermediate to pick up and refine the more flashy techniques.
Stand up paddleboarding or kayaking
However, Providenciales has many natural formations like bays, reefs, and mangrove channels that can shield certain areas from the more tumultuous ocean surface, so paddleboarding or kayaking can still be a fun activity.
November to February are great months to spot whales in the Turks and Caicos. This season coincides with the humpback whale migration as they transit towards their northern feeding grounds. You might even catch sights of a few calves as the Caribbean is a known breeding ground.
These, of course, are chance encounters. However, February in the Caribbean is usually peak whale spotting times.
Book Your February Caribbean Trip Early
February is one of Turks and Caicos’ busiest months in terms of tourism. It’s important that you book early—not only for your hotel and flights, but also for any activities you want to do.
