Frost or no frost, you want to go to Paris? I'd be the last ones to stop you! But, I feel morally obligated to remind you, that your dream destination may not be so dreamy in the dead of winter, or heat of summer. Here are some of the most popular romantic honeymoon destinations -- some because they enjoy relatively sublime weather year-round -- along their not-so-pretty seasons. HAWAII Best months: March to July, October and November Worst months: Far from horrible, December and January are coolest (average afternoon temperature is 75 degrees); August and September are hottest (average 92 degrees). The wettest months are from November to March, each Island will have its own distinctions as well. *Note: In general, every island's northern shore gets more rain than the southern, especially on Kauai and the Big Island during December and January. BAHAMAS Best months: November to April Worst months: It is hottest (up to 89 degrees on average) and rainiest from June to October
BERMUDA Best months: May to October Worst month: January and February CARIBBEAN Best months: Technically, December to May, when the area is coolest and enjoys the most wind, but average temperatures year-round hover between 78 and 88 degrees Worst months: "Official" hurricane season runs from June to November; the worst months are Mid-August, September, and October (islands near South America -- Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Trinidad, and Tobago -- are outside the hurricane “danger zone”) *Note: High-altitude and coastal spots are cooled by trade winds year-round (a good salve during the hotter and more humid summer months)
EUROPE Best months: May through September or October Worst months: December to February
FLORIDA Best months: March, April, October, November Worst months: May to September *Note: The Florida Keys experience temperate, Caribbean-like weather year-round.
LAS VEGAS Best months: March, April, October, November Worst months: June to September *Note: July and August are scorchers here, but at least it's a "dry" heat (humidity is very low year-round)
MEXICO Best months: October to May Worst months: Rainy season runs June through September, but usually only involves a short daily dousing. It is also hotter and more humid during the summer months. *Note: Coastal playgrounds and low-lying sections of the country are hotter than higher-altitude destinations such as Mexico City, Guadalajara, and the heartland "Silver Cities."
SOUTHEAST ASIA (BALI, THAILAND) Best months: October to February Worst months: Hottest between March and May; very rainy from June to September
SOUTH PACIFIC (FIJI, FRENCH POLYNESIA) Best months: May to October Worst months: December to February (hot, humid, and rainy); Tahiti lies well outside the Pacific cyclone zone and while Fiji does not, it is rarely hit during the highest-risk months of January and February
