Best Times to Visit St. Vincent & The Grenadines

The peak season – December through April – lures European visitors with its warm and dry Caribbean temperatures. Crowds thin out and hotel prices plummet between July and October when hurricane season threatens the archipelago. No matter which month you visit, you'll find the islands' average highs hover around 85 degrees throughout the year.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

December-April

December through April is prime time in St. Vincent & The Grenadines, and consequentially, hotel rates are at their highest. To ensure availability, you'll want to book your room several months in advance. Keep an eye out for vibrant events taking place at this time of year, such as Mustique's annual Blues Festival.

Key Events:

May-June

May through June is a sweet spot between hurricane season in the summer and high tourism season in the winter. Temperatures stay in the mid-80s during the day, dipping just a few degrees lower at night. To ensure the best hotel rates – particularly if you're planning to come during the 12-day Vincy Mas Carnival – book your room several months in advance.

Key Events:

July-October

Like the rest of the Caribbean, prices drop and crowds wane during the summer and fall. July experiences the most rainfall, with St. Vincent's mountain region bearing the brunt of the showers. Tropical storms threaten the area until October, but if you don't mind the possibility of getting wet, you'll observe St. Vincent & The Grenadines' lush landscape at its finest.

November

This sweet month falls between the rainy and peak seasons, making it perfect for the budget traveler looking for fewer crowds, lower prices and mild weather.
