The warmest Caribbean island in February is Aruba. But two more islands are not far behind.

They are Curaçao, which is quite close to Aruba, and Grand Cayman.

Aruba has an average high temperature in February of 87 degrees Fahrenheit or nearly 31 Celsius, according to the Meteorological Department of Aruba. The average low or nighttime temperature is 76 degrees Fahrenheit or more than 24 Celsius.

Curaçao and Grand Cayman have an average daytime temperature of 86 degrees Fahrenheit or 30 Celsius. Their average nighttime temperature, like Aruba, is 76 Fahrenheit or about 24 Celsius.

So anyone who wants to visit the warmest Caribbean island in February has three choices that are nearly the same: Aruba, Curaçao and Grand Cayman.

St. Thomas of the U.S. Virgin Islands comes in fourth place with an average high temperature of 85 degrees Fahrenheit or more than 29 Celsius.

Most other major destinations have average daytime temperatures ranging from 81 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit.

They include Antigua, Barbados, Cancun, Cozumel, Jamaica, San Juan, St. Lucia and St. Maarten.

The lowest temperature group with an average high of 81 degrees Fahrenheit includes Roatan, Puerto Plata, Punta Cana and Turks and Caicos.

Nassau, Bahamas, has the coolest temperatures among major destinations with an average high of 77 degrees Fahrenheit or 25 Celsius. Although technically in the Atlanta Ocean and not the Caribbean Sea, Nassau is a popular stop on many Caribbean cruises.

The winners in the above list will change as the year goes on because some destinations such as Cancun and Cozumel get much hotter than others.
