Weather InformationLocated in the tropics, just 12 degrees north of the Equator, Curacao's climate remains warm and sunny year-round. Annual temperatures average between 80 and 85 degrees, while easterly trade winds cool the island, particularly once spring hits. October through February is considered the wet season; however rains are usually short and fall at night, while days remain sunny. Also, Curacao is located outside the traditional hurricane belt, so storms are rarely an issue.
Crowd InformationIn general, the winter season is busier than the summer. Carnival season, from January through February, brings in considerable crowds.
Closure InformationSome hotels, shops, and other venues close down on national holidays, such as Christmas and Easter, and during the official Carnival holiday (the two days right before Ash Wednesday).
When to SaveMay and September are the best times to go cost-wise.
When to BookIn general, it's best to book early, especially during the high season when flights and hotels tend to fill up quickly. This rule is especially important for travel over Christmas and during February, particularly around Presidents Day weekend. During the low season, there is more leeway. Oftentimes, there are cheaper last-minute airfares and hotel prices, and special packages and deals are available.
