Due to the magnificent weather in the Caribbean,
almost any time of the year is the perfect time for a
St Martin vacation or a visit to the Dutch half of the
island known as St Maarten Caribbean.
You may not wish to visit due to the humidity, which
is always present during the rainy season in the
summer months of June to November. Of course, hurricane
season is another poor time to come to this island and
occurs during the same time period. The good news is if
you wish to partake of some St Martin travel during this
time of the year, you are sure to find all kinds of deals
on airfare, hotels, and even many attractions and activities.
This is the low season when not many visitors come and
the hotels wish to stay full if possible. You will enjoy
cheaper prices and fewer crowds at the beaches, restaurants, and other attractions.
The high season for traveling to St Martin Island is from the middle of December until the middle of April. This may be the best time to visit if you desire the perfect tropical vacation, however, everyone else is thinking the same exact thing and you may have a hard time booking accommodation unless you book way in advance. From January until April, you should expect hot and humid weather; however, the trade winds keep it rather nice.
Before you decide to travel to St Martin Island, you
must realize that the island is divided. The St Martin side
is under control of the French, while the St
Maarten side belongs to the Dutch. Even though this
is true, the weather, tourist
season, and even the off season are the same for both
If you prefer to embark on your St Martin travel during
the off season, which includes the summer months
of June, July, and August, you will still be
able to enjoy all the St Martin vacation fun, you’ll
just encounter fewer crowds. There might be a bit
more rain during this time, however, you will soon realize
that it does not rain 24 hours a day and there is still
plenty of time to enjoy all that St Maarten Caribbean
has to offer. Remember, once the tourists head home, prices
begin to decline all over the place. Not only do airfare
and accommodations go down in price, but also many vendors
slash their prices from 20 to 50 percent, so you can find
some really awesome deals. Of course, stores may not be
open as long as they are during the hot tourist season,
and you may notice a bit more construction around the
area preparing for the next season. If you do wish to
visit St Martin Island during the low season, the humidity
is a factor is you plan to do many outdoor activities
such as biking or hiking.
If you love festivals, then
you may wish to include one during your St
Martin vacation. St Maarten as well as St Martin
both have wonderful festivals. The St Maarten Heineken
Regatta is an annual festival held at the beginning of
March. The summer fest in July is seen in both St Martin
and St Maarten offering nightly music ranging from gospel
to hip-hop, reggae to jazz. Carnival is a popular time
for those wishing to experience the Caribbean, which runs
from the beginning of April until May.
As you can see, St Martin travel is perfect any time you wish to go. You can visit while other tourists are there or plan a St Martin vacation during the off season for great deals and beaches practically to yourself.
