Visiting the Caribbean in April: Pros
As far as weather goes, April is a fantastic time to travel to the Caribbean.
You’ll have mostly sunny days and comfortable, moderate temperatures. If you can wait until the end of the month (the “shoulder season”) to book your trip, you’ll also save money and avoid the Spring Break crowds.
Visiting the Caribbean in April: Cons
The Caribbean high season spans mid-December to mid-April. Expect crowds and high prices at popular destinations, especially during spring break in the early part of the month.
What to Wear and What to Pack
Loose-fitting cotton layers will keep you cool during the day, while a light sweater and slacks will be just right for the cooler evenings. Don’t forget a swimsuit, plenty of sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses.
You’ll want dressier clothes for visiting nice restaurants or clubs -- and bring more formal footwear than just flip-flops and sneakers.
