When to Go

  • High Season (mid-Dec–mid-Apr & Jul) Crowds escaping the frosty US mainland in winter see hotel rates go up and seasonal attractions come to life. In July, local families create a second high season, filling beach towns.
  • Shoulder (Sep–Nov & mid-Apr–May) Puerto Rico’s tourist infrastructure takes a breather to regroup during shoulder season, though there isn’t a significant fluctuation in prices or services.
  • Low Season (Jun–Nov) Apart from July, things get pretty lethargic during hurricane season; some resorts offer discounted packages, but prices at small hotels don’t drop precipitously.
