When to visit

If you are working within a budget then I suggest you choose between May to November, which are the off-season months. While rates stay cheapest during those months, however a hurricane may threaten your stay on the island. Otherwise, if money is no option, then you should visit the island from November to April and include the enjoyment of surfing real Caribbean waves.
