Caribbean Travel GuideWhen to visit the Caribbean
Most Caribbean islands are warm, year-round destinations. However, the most popular time to visit in general is from December 15 through April 15, when people from the north want to escape cold winters. Some islands popular with honeymooners can see high visitation during the summer months as well. The rest of the year, from mid-April through mid-December, is typically less busy. This time can be an ideal time to visit due to fewer crowds, more availability, and cheaper prices, although hurricanes can sometimes pose a threat.
