When to Travel to the Caribbean

When it comes to taking vacation, timing is everything. Windspree Vacation Homes not only matches you with affordable, private Caribbean villa rentals, but we also offer helpful tips and tricks to ensure you get the most out of your vacation in St. John. Utilize this helpful guide when planning your vacation to help decide when to travel to the Caribbean:

  • High Season and Off Season: high season (also called winter season) runs roughly from mid-December to mid-April. During high season, expect to pay higher prices for your airline tickets and villa rental, although booking well in advance helps to avoid some of these high costs. During high season all attractions, shops, and restaurants are open for business and more travelers are present during high season. Off season begins around the time that the weather warms up in North America, usually mid-April. Off season lasts until about mid-December, and during that time prices are much lower and there are less travelers. Some businesses and attractions may be closed during off season.
  • Hurricane Season: Hurricane season officially lasts from June until November. If you plan to travel during this season, be sure to spend the extra cash on vacation insurance in case of a cancellation due to weather. Staying abreast of weather conditions is the best way to travel to the Caribbean during hurricane season. There is usually adequate warning of unfavorable weather, so plan your trip’s activities accordingly.
