High Season vs. Low Season in the Caribbean

When to visit the Caribbean may be based more on budget than weather. Prices can vary as much as 40 percent between high and low season.

High Season

High season generally extends from December 15 through April 15. During this time, prices are at peak and rooms can even be difficult to reserve (especially during the holiday season). Prices soar during Christmas week.

After the holidays, package prices (although sometimes not room rates) drop during January. They rise again by February and remain high until mid-April.

Low Season

Low season covers the summer and early fall months, for two reasons. First, these are the warmest months in the Northeast, the area of the country that often flees to the sunny Caribbean during the chilly winter months so demand is down.

Second, this is hurricane season.

Within low season, the lowest of the low comes in September and October, the peak weeks of hurricane season.

Different Seasons for Bermuda

Remember that Bermuda is not part of the Caribbean so high season falls during the summer months on that island (starting in mid-April at some resorts, mid-May at others).

Winter marks Bermuda’s low season when prices (and the temperature) falls.
