Best Times to Visit Trinidad & Tobago

The best time to visit Trinidad and Tobago is from January to May when the skies stay clear. Although the islands aren't on the hurricane belt, afternoon rain showers are daily occurrences from June to December. Hotels lower their rates to account for rainy weather during this wet season. At least the weather stays pleasant year-round: There's little humidity and average temps hover in the low 80s.

January-May

Compared to Tobago, Trinidad's hotel prices are fairly stable this time of year. But rates do spike in January and February due to the Trinidad Carnival. Despite the price jump, it's still a great time to see these islands. There will be very little rain, and temperatures rest in the mid-80s.

Key Events:

June-December

Although there's little chance of hurricanes, it's still pretty wet from June to December. Hotel deals are easier to find, but keep in mind that a lot of European travelers visit Tobago during this time of year. To ensure you score a good deal, make your reservations at least three months in advance.
