Best time to visit Port of Spain:

January to May (Dry Season/High Season):

  • This period is considered the best time to visit Trinidad and Tobago, particularly for outdoor enthusiasts and those interested in experiencing local festivals. The weather is relatively dry, with sunny days and temperatures ranging from the mid-70s to the mid-90s Fahrenheit (24-35°C). It's perfect for beach vacations, hiking, bird-watching, and exploring the islands. This is also the time when Trinidad hosts its famous Carnival, typically in February or March, featuring colorful parades, music, and dancing.

June to December (Rainy Season/Low Season):

  • The rainy season in Trinidad and Tobago brings warmer temperatures, increased humidity, and occasional heavy rain showers. The landscape becomes lush and green during these months. While the rainfall can be significant, it often occurs in brief, intense bursts. 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.

Hurricane Season:

  • Trinidad and Tobago are generally located outside the hurricane belt, so they are less prone to hurricanes. However, there is still a small risk of tropical storms or heavy rainfall associated with nearby weather systems during the hurricane season, which runs from June to November.

Specific Interests:

  • If you plan to visit Tobago for the nesting season of the leatherback turtles, the best time is from March to August.
