Best time to visit Westpunt:

December to April (Dry Season/High Season):

  • This period is the peak tourist season and considered the best time to visit Curaçao. 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, snorkeling, and water sports. However, prices for accommodations and activities are higher, and the island can be more crowded.

May to November (Rainy Season/Low Season):

  • The rainy season in Curaçao brings slightly warmer temperatures and increased humidity, but it doesn't mean constant rain. Occasional short, heavy showers are common, typically followed by sunshine. This is the low season, offering lower prices on accommodations and fewer tourists. It's a great option for budget-conscious travelers and those looking for a quieter experience.

September to November (Peak of Hurricane Season):

  • These months coincide with the peak of the hurricane season in the Caribbean, but Curaçao is located outside the hurricane belt and is rarely affected by hurricanes. However, there's still a risk of occasional storms, so keep an eye on weather updates if visiting during this period.

Specific Interests:

  • If you're interested in scuba diving and want to witness the coral spawning, plan your visit around September or October when this natural phenomenon occurs.
