WEATHERThe best time to go is the winter season, between mid-December and mid-April. By July and August it is much hotter but not usually unbearable. The dry season begins in January, and though there are sometimes droughts, the sunshine creates one of the most pleasant climates in the Caribbean. July to November is also hurricane season, and although Antigua doesn’t get too much rain, you should pack your umbrellas to be safe.
