When to Go

  • Jan-Jun The dry season is the best time to visit to avoid the Caribbean's increasingly common hurricanes.
  • Apr-Jul Crabs migrate and roads in Providencia can be closed to protect them! Some may view this as a fascinating spectacle to witness, while others will find the closures frustrating.
  • Dec Christmas is peak time on both islands and you'll need to book your accommodation weeks (if not months) ahead of time. Prices are generally much lower if you travel outside this period.
  • Aug Another peak travel season when prices spike and hotel rooms can be tough to find.
