Tourism statistics show March, July and December as the most popular months to visit St. Lucia, but the locals say that their Island is a paradise to enjoy all year round!
St. Lucia attracts about 1 million cruise and stopover visitors every year, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organization. More than 600,000 arrive by cruise ship and more than 300,000 stay multiple nights.
The three most popular months statistically tare March, July and December. Tourism spikes during all three months because of time off from schools that allow families to travel overseas and go on vacation together.
The Island attracts most rain in the months of September and October, where you can experience tropical rain storms throughout the entire Caribbean.
What about Hurricanes?
Only 14 hurricanes have moved closer than 60 miles to St.Lucia since 1850. No hurricane systems affected Saint Lucia between 1980 and 2007. In 2017, hurricane Maria passed north of the island as a Category 2 storm, damaging some of the road systems.
The island rarely gets hit directly by a storm or hurricane, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Centre, St. Lucia is an island in the southeast of the Caribbean basin and much more protected against hurricanes.
The part of the open ocean where the storm systems typically gain strength over warm, open water - is far north of the St Lucia's location. Hurricanes usually gain strength as they move west toward the U.S. and toward the other islands in the north of the basin. Most weather systems with hurricane potential that affect Saint Lucia are therefore immature, ill-formed and weak.
St Lucia is a tropical Island and only suffers from heavy rain fall during September and October, however it is also one of the most richly diverse in terms of vegetation, tropical fruit trees, nature and lush green covered mountains!
