Climate & when to go
The average annual temperature is 80.6°F (27°C), with the hottest weather occurring during the hurricane season from June to November. June, July and August, however, are known to be quite lovely as the intense humidity only kicks in around September, when hurricane season is at its peak. The average annual rainfall is 35in. The lightest rainfall is generally from February to April and the heaviest from October to December. Inflated high-season rates start around mid-December and go until mid-April. Many hotels shut down for the entire month of September and often October as well. Christmas or New Year’s are crowded for obvious reasons, but surprisingly, February sees the most visitors.
