St. Lucia & Virgin Islands Travel Guide

Best time to visit St. Lucia

o Visit the U.S Virgin Islands

The best time to visit St. Lucia is between April and June. This is because there's very little rainfall, the temperatures are comfortable in the mid-70's to 80's (Between 21-27 degrees Celsius), and it's not the peak tourism season resulting in less expensive lodging and activities along with fewer crowds.

Between December and March is also a good time to go to St. Lucia but this is the peak tourism season so hotel and activity prices can raise as much as 50%!

Between July and November you'll find amazing deals but these months correspond with hurricane season so it's not recommended that you go during this time.
