Best time to visit Cap-Haïtien:

December to April (Dry Season/High Season):

  • This period is considered the best time to visit Haiti. The weather is dry, sunny, and comfortable, with temperatures ranging from the mid-70s to the mid-80s Fahrenheit (24-30°C). It's ideal for beach vacations, exploring historic sites, and enjoying outdoor activities. You'll experience less rainfall, clear skies, and pleasant conditions. However, it's also the high season, so prices for accommodations and tours may be higher.

May to November (Rainy Season/Low Season):

  • The rainy season in Haiti brings warmer temperatures and increased humidity, along with occasional heavy rain showers and the possibility of tropical storms. While the rainfall can be substantial, it typically doesn't last all day. This is the low season, offering lower prices on accommodations and fewer tourists. It's a great time for budget-conscious travelers and those seeking a quieter experience. The countryside is lush and green during these months.

June to November (Hurricane Season):

  • Haiti is located in the hurricane-prone region, and the peak of the hurricane season is from August to October. While hurricanes are relatively rare in Haiti, there is still a risk. Travelers should monitor weather updates and be prepared for possible disruptions during this period.

Specific Interests:

  • If you're interested in experiencing Vodou (Voodoo) ceremonies and festivals, visit during the summer months when many Vodou ceremonies take place.
