Best Times to Visit Grenada

The best time to visit Grenada is December. This single month is sandwiched between the departure of the rainy season and the arrival of the winter crowds, making this the best time of year to score both sunshine and sales. Like the rest of the Caribbean, Grenada experiences a surge in tourism from January through April, when the weather in the U.S. and the U.K. is at its gloomiest. You can expect both airfare and room rates to rise during this peak season. Summer and fall usher in regular rainfall and the constant threat of hurricanes, but if you're willing to risk a bout of bad weather, you'll find hotel rates discounted up to 40 percent.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

December

This sweet month shouldering Grenada's peak season greets visitors with daily highs in the upper 80s. Though the rainy season is on its way out, you should be prepared for the occasional storm, particularly if you're planning an early-December trip. You should get ready to rub elbows with more than a few fellow tourists if you visit later on in the month. This is also a great time to take advantage of lingering hotel and airfare deals.

Key Events:

January-April

Grenada understandably sees the largest influx of visitors between January and April: it's primary tourism market—Great Britain—still has several more months of cold, rainy weather ahead. Meanwhile, Grenada boasts temperatures in the upper 80s and 90s and plenty of sunshine. However, a visit during peak season will cost you a pretty penny, and you should plan to make reservations several months in advance to ensure availability.

Key Events:

May-November

As crowds start to wane, the chance of a soggy getaway increases. Grenada experiences the most rainfall during the summer months, and the islands are not immune from hurricane season. But this also serves as the best time for bargain hunters: Though some hotels close for the off-season, those that keep their doors open offer reduced room rates.
