Crowds, as well as the price tags on flights and hotels, skyrocket during this peak season. With drier air and slightly milder temperatures, this season offers the Caribbean weather that attracts so many looking to escape the cold. If this season is best for you to make the trek to TCI, you'll see fewer crowds and travelling families by avoiding holiday times and school vacations.
This shoulder season is perfect for the budget traveler who doesn't mind the occasional rain shower. Since it's not at the height of the tourist season nor the peak of hurricane season, you'll likely hit the sweet spot of affordability and good weather. And you won't have the beach crowds to battle for spots in the sand.
You might want to visit during the quieter summer months to find up to 40 percent off on hotels. Just keep an eye on the weather report — this is the rainy season and there's a slight chance of hurricanes. Keep in mind that the rainy season can also mean more mosquitoes and no-see-ums. When you pack your bug spray, grab your sunblock too. The afternoon sun of the summer months can get extra hot. Be sure to spend some time retreating in the shade during this season.
