Although the French side of the island is more developed, the French side is home to the budget places to sleep and more traditional European hotels.
Climate and tourist season
Just like in the entire Caribbean region, December to May is considered the dry season, while June to November is the wet season. But rain can come in any season. The chances of being hit by a hurricane are really low and the average temperatures on the coast range between 72 and 86 F, while inland they range between 66 and 81 F.
The peak season is during Christmas and New Year and the high season extends until April.
