When to Go
Cruises sail to Puerto Rico and other Caribbean destinations year-round, so scheduling a trip is easy, whenever you’d like to head out. Most itineraries that travel to Puerto Rico last a week, though longer voyages also are possible.
The high season for tourism on the island is from mid-December to mid-April, when many vacationers flee frigid temperatures at home. Late spring until late fall is considered the off-season; with fewer visitors, the island is more laid back, pools and beaches are less crowded and retailers may offer special sales.
Like many tropical vacation destinations, wonderful weather is a major draw for Puerto Rico. The climate rarely deviates from perfect temperatures, with average highs in the 80s and lows in the 70s throughout the year. Trade winds bring a cooling breeze to coastal towns, and slightly lower temperatures can be found as you go up in elevation in the interior mountains.
