Swimming pigs are rare but not the only exotic creatures you can find on this paradise island. Enjoy footprints in the sandbar while taking amazing photos with the shimmering blue sea.
Are there specific times of year that are best to travel to the Caribbean?
Carlie: Great thing about the Caribbean year round they typically have beautiful weather. The best time to visit St. Lucia is between May and June. These late spring and early summer months offer wonderful weather – high 70s to 80s – plus there are enviable room rates at the best hotels. Music lovers should consider visiting in early May specifically to attend the St. Lucia. St Lucia is least likely to be effected by hurricanes.
The best time to visit the Bahamas is from mid-December to mid-April, the country’s peak season. Though temperatures here are great year-round (they rarely dip below 60 degrees), the islands fall within the hurricane belt, so hurricanes may be a factor between June 1 and Nov. 30 (the Atlantic hurricane season).
The best time to visit Jamaica is November to mid-December. That’s when the island’s already beautiful weather (ranging from mid-70s to the high 80s all year-round) is the most pleasant and the hotel and flight deals are the easiest to find.
