The Best Time to Visit the Caribbean


Famed for its brilliant blue skies, hours of sunshine and pleasantly warm temperatures, the Caribbean’s climate is one of its most attractive features. And while it is true that the Caribbean offers year round great weather, there is some slight variation in the climate which can mean certain times are better to visit than others. Thankfully the weather across the Caribbean is fairly consistent, so if you’re planning an island hopping holiday you should find the weather to be similar across the islands. Read on to find out when the perfect time to visit the Caribbean is for you.

Best Time The best time to visit the islands of the Caribbean is in the UK’s cooler months, making this a great destination for those seeking some winter sun. Between December and April you can expect to see the driest weather along with pleasant temperatures that are neither too hot nor too cold, averaging around 25-30°C, and low humidity. Of course, this great weather can also mean that this is a busier period and prices may be slightly higher.

Good Time May, June and November tend to be good times to visit the Caribbean. Falling just outside the rainy season, these months still enjoy great weather, but tend to be quieter and cost less than the peak winter months. While there may be the risk of the odd shower you can expect plenty of sunshine too.

Rainy Season The rainy season in the Caribbean typically falls between June and November however there can be some slight variation in this. Typically this season is characterised by showers and short heavy downpours rather than constant rainfall throughout the day, so this shouldn’t put you off visiting during this time as you will still get sunshine! It’s worth bearing in mind that travel does tend to be cheapest at this time of year and the islands are generally not as busy either.
