The high season in St. Lucia is Dec-April. This is when the weather is usually the best and the bugs are at a minimum. However, it is also the busiest time with the most tourists and the hotels are the most expensive! Good times to check out are right around then, May or Nov. Generally, the weather is still good and the hotel rates go down.

That said - as far as I am concerned, any time is a great time to visit St. Lucia!

And, Jade Mountain is absolutely beautiful. We have enjoyed our stays there immensely.

Agree that any time is a good time but best times are November through May.

May, quieter and more relaxed. The weather can still be good and less cruise ships around so the tours are nicer. Sadly these days good weather is not guaranteed jan-march.

We've been there in April and June - have to agree that anytime you can visit will be good, but towards the end of the high season and early in the low season are probably best - not as crowded, will be a lot less expensive and the risk of bad weather, like hurricanes, is not as great.

It is the high season in St. Lucia as it is generally drier and lower temps than during the summer - meaning lwer humidity and only mid to high 20s as opposed to high 20s to lower 30s. Also - somewhat less rain showers. Prices are much higher on hotels and restaurants, etc than during the summer months.

May and Nov are bumper months, meaing they will be somewhat wetter than Dec-April but not as wet as say Aug. Also, prices are a bit lower in Nov and May (especially May as low season officially starts mid-May)

Enjoy.

November is the tail end of hurricane season, and as such, can still be rainy off and on. It is still hot and humid and good chance of rain, although less chance than Aug-Oct. It is low season still, so rates are lower than during the winter months. Temps range from 27-30 during the day to 25-27 at night. And humid.

Enjoy your visit.
