- Times to Travel: St. Lucia, like most Caribbean destinations, is popular during the winter months (December to mid-April). This period generally receives the least amount of rainfall, and the winter temperatures average a balmy 80° F (26° C).
The off-season, June through November, is the rainy season and the temperatures will be a bit higher, but still comfortable at 85° F (29° C).
