When is the best time to visit Saint Lucia?

The best time to visit Saint Lucia is between February and May, when the weather is driest. Temperatures are pleasantly warm year-round, with average highs ranging from 28°C to 32°C at sea level, though it can be significantly cooler up in the mountains. The average hours of sunshine don’t vary too much throughout the year.

Rainfall is heavier from June to January, but it usually comes down in brief, heavy bursts. The official hurricane season is July to November, and although the risk of hurricanes are very small, there are also tropical storms in the Caribbean region in this period.

April and May are often great times to visit as prices are much lower than earlier in the year but the weather is still very similar.
