Nassau featured on Valentine’s Day destination list

Among the warm weather destinations Americans are traveling to this week to celebrate love, Nassau came in at number two on Allianz Global Assistance’s travel plans review.

Allianz, a leading travel insurance and assistance company, reviewed Americans’ travel plans for roundtrip flights for two to domestic and international destinations the weekends immediately before and after Valentine’s Day.

Allianz revealed in a press release that of Americans traveling outside of the U.S. this week – departing and returning from February 7-11 and February 14-18, 2019 – many have chosen Cancun, Mexico; San Juan, Puerto Rico; San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico and then Nassau. Both Cancun and San Juan tied for first place, while Sand Jose Del Cabo and Nassau landed at number two.

In terms of international destinations that fell below those warm weather winners, Vancouver, Toronto, Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta, Oranjestad and Montego Bay also made the top ten list.

“New York City (NYC) and Cancun reign supreme as the most popular domestic and international romantic destinations for Valentine’s Day travel in 2019, with NYC claiming the top spot for the third year running and Cancun for the fifth year in a row,” the release notes.

“Americans leaving the country to celebrate are overwhelmingly headed to our neighbors to the north and south – with four Mexico and two Canada destinations dominating the list: Cancun (#1), San Jose Del Cabo (#3), Mexico City (#7) and Puerto Vallarta (#8) in Mexico; and Vancouver (#5) and Toronto (#6), Canada. The remaining top ten international destinations are warm weather locales: San Juan, Puerto Rico (#2); Nassau, The Bahamas (#4); Oranjestad, Aruba (#9) and Montego Bay, Jamaica (#10).
