It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Puerto Rico

Peak Season: Mid-December to mid-April

Expect high prices and perfect beach weather. Locals might be spotted wearing sweaters when the temperature dips below 80. The periods around Christmas, most of February, and the Easter holiday are when crowds swell.

Off Season: June to October

Heat and humidity can be oppressive and this is prime hurricane season, but you’ll find hotel bargains, especially heading into September. Rain – always a factor in Puerto Rico’s mountains – peaks in San Juan May through October with afternoon showers, usually short in duration.

Sweet Spot: November to mid-December; mid-April to May

Just before and after high season you can expect good weather and hotel rates 20 to 40 percent below the peak season prices. Watch for airfare sales during these periods.
