When to Go

High Season (Dec–Apr, Jun & Jul)

  • Around key times (Christmas, New Year, Easter) hotel prices are raised significantly.
  • Book well in advance for Easter in Antigua.

Shoulder (Oct & Nov)

  • Rains begin to ease up, but October is peak hurricane season.
  • Mild temperatures and clear days make this a good time to be traveling and hiking in the highlands.

Low Season (Apr–Sep)

  • Prices drop, crowds thin out at archaeological sites, and booking accommodations is rarely necessary.
  • Daily afternoon rains can make traveling chilly in the highlands and muddy in the jungle.
