– Feb 5: Constitution day
The Constitution of Mexico, formally the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States (Constitución Política de los Estados Unidos Mexicanos) is the current constitution of Mexico. It was drafted in Santiago de Querétaro, in the State of Querétaro, by a constitutional convention, during the Mexican Revolution. It was approved by the Constitutional Congress on February 5, 1917. It is the successor to the Constitution of 1857, and earlier Mexican constitutions.
– Feb 14: Valentine’s day
While traditionally we did not celebrate Valentines day in Mexico, it perfectly fits the loving and festive nature that defines Mexicans, and nowadays we use this sweet excuse to pamper our loved ones, friends and family. Restaurants will probably be full, so don’t forget to make your reservation early.

– Feb 27 – Mar 4: Traditional La Paz Carnival
Carnival in La Paz is one of the best in all of México. This event is one giant party with fireworks, colorful parades, street dancing, carnival rides, entertainment, games and a great family atmosphere. If you plan on attending Carnival make your reservations early, as the area hotels usually fill rapidly during Carnival. The waterfront location provides a dramatic backdrop for all of the hoopla.
– Feb – Mar: Whale watching
Whale watching in Cabo San Lucas is a truly unforgettable experience, and just couple of minutes from the shore. Until the end of March you can see Humpback and Gray whale, but it is not rare to see Blue whales, Sperm Whales and even Orcas.
