Have done Thailand, Mexico, lots of the US, Middle East. Where would you go in Feb for 10-14 days of amazing sun, food, relaxation but some sights too? Could potentially combine a city stay then on to a beach resort? It’s for a big birthday so something memorable!

Brazil is great in Feb, especially as you are traveling without kids. I would do a week in Rio then fly to Salvador. Great culture, beautiful beaches, lovely people.

I would have said Sri Lanka but I understand you might be wary.
Vietnam/Cambodia with a stop in Singapore? Or Malaysia/Indonesia- Bali/Penang/Sarawak/forests of Borneo.
Tanzania and east Africa?

Caribbean is perfect at at that time of year. The calabash Hotel in Grenada is nice. Or how about the Maldives?

Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Burma - lot of fabulous options.

We went to Zanzibar in Feb this year and loved it. Could be combined with safari in Kenya or Tanzania.

February is a great time weather-wise for lots of amazing places! Panama / Costa Rica / Belize should be good if you fancy Central America, or most of south east Asia?

For a big birthday, I’d probably pick something like Cambodia (few days seeing the temples at Angkor Wat then beach), or Belize with a side trip into Guatemala to see Tikal.

It will be fearsomely hot in Brazil. A week on the beaches in Rio wouldn’t suit me. Great for people watching though.

A memorable holiday would be going to somewhere like Virgin Gorda. Beaches are fantastic. You can get a ferry to other islands. Little Dix Bay is heaven.

Or look at Cape Town and drive along the Garden Route. Great food, great places to stay (guest houses are the luxurious option) plus seaside towns such as Knysna are lovely and you could go to Addo for a short safari if you like too.

The Al'Husn in Oman? Absolutely stunning hotel and beautiful country. Weather will be ideal then too. Muscat itself is very interesting too.

South Africa - it is glorious weather and shoulder season ...

Caribbean would be my suggestion.

We’re off to Ghana which is hot in February

Cuba? Combine sight seeing in Havana and other towns with a beautiful beach break.

Kerala- backwaters and beach.

We are going to Sri Lanka on honeymoon in Feb. After the attacks we thought we would cancel but to be honest I'm not sure anywhere in the world is completely safe.

Antarctica? Really fits the “sun” criteria!
