Idyllic beaches, warm Caribbean waters and vibrant towns and cities make Puerto Rico a destination like no other. Explore its atmospheric capital, hike its mountainous interior or spend your days soaking up some tropical sun on the island’s beautiful coast.
The peak season in Puerto Rico runs from mid-December to mid-April. At this busy time of year the weather is warm, skies are clear and there’s only a minimal chance of rain. However, with crowds flocking to San Juan and the island’s beaches, flights to Puerto Rico can be a bit more expensive in the winter months, especially around the holiday season.
If you want to avoid the crowds, but still enjoy some Caribbean sunshine, book your tickets to Puerto Rico between mid-April and June. Although May is one of the rainier months on the island, the spring is still a lovely time to travel to Puerto Rico.
From July to September, there’s an increased chance of hurricanes and so fewer people travel to the island. However with many hotels offering great deals on rooms, this can be a good time to book cheap flights to Puerto Rico.
To avoid the worst of the bad weather, book your plane tickets to Puerto Rico in October or November to enjoy cheap rates and plenty of sunshine.
