Best times to visit

Dry Season

Antigua remains mostly warm and dry throughout the year, but mid December to mid April is considered its dry season. The driest months of all are February to April, when humidity is low and temperatures are warm without being stifling. 

Rainy Season

Mid April to late November sees increased temperatures and rainfall, usually brief showers lasting less than 15 minutes. July and August see most rain, on average around eight days a month, which can make the climate more humid.  

Favourite Season

We love Antigua in the cooler, drier months of mid December to mid April, the peak tourist season, when the island experiences less rain, heat, and humidity. The cold weather at home makes Antigua the perfect destination for winter sun.
