Best time to visit St. John's:

December to April (Peak Season): This is the most popular time to visit. The weather is warm and dry, with pleasant temperatures ranging from the mid-70s to mid-80s Fahrenheit (24-30°C). It's perfect for beach activities, water sports, and exploring the islands. The clear skies and calm seas make it an ideal time for sailing and diving.

May to November (Hurricane Season/Low Season): This period coincides with the Caribbean hurricane season, with the highest risk of hurricanes occurring from August to October. While you might find lower prices on accommodations and fewer crowds, there's an increased chance of rain and storms, particularly in the late summer and early fall.

June to August (Slightly Rainier): June to August is a transitional period between the dry and wet seasons. While it's considered part of the hurricane season, the risk is lower during these months compared to the peak hurricane months of September and October. You may experience occasional rain showers, but it can still be a good time to visit if you're on a budget.
