The Caribbean features a tropical climate with sunshine year-round, making a Caribbean vacation worthwhile no matter what time of the year. The region experiences dry and wet seasons, plus much warmer months, so the best time to visit boils down to whether you prefer perfect weather or lower hotel rates.
January to May tend to be drier months, and are more popular with travelers -- especially in January. From early spring through summer, more rain and hotter temperatures (plus cool trade winds) make this an ideal time to find great deals on a Caribbean vacation. Hurricane season officially spans from June through November, and early December is the best time to go for low hotel rates and few crowds.
Eat at Scotchie’s in Montego Bay and Ocho Rios for fantastic Jamaican jerk food, plus traditional fried dough and breadfruit.
Buy some bling in St. Martin, where you’ll find some of the best deals on silver and gold in all of the duty-free Caribbean.
Do the Dolphin Cay Deep Water Swim at Atlantis and snorkel alongside a dolphin using your own water scooter.
Try The Fish Fry restaurant in Nassau near Arawak Cay for authentic Bahamian conch salad, fried fish and cold Kalik beer.
Rent a scooter in Bermuda for great exploration, with stops in Dockyard, Hamilton City, St. George and the famous Swizzel Inn.
