Hotels in British Virgin Islands
In general, accommodation is rather pricey in the BVI for this only reason: there aren’t many places to stay. However, if you stay away from the resorts and “main spots” you can easily find some affordable and nice places to stay.
Climate and tourist season
The balmy weather of the islands offers averages of 77 F in the winter and 82 F in the summer. The humidity is low due to the trade winds while the waters are warm because of the Caribbean currents.
The wet season – September to November – brings rain in short bursts. The chances of hurricanes are so low that you don’t need to worry about them.
The peak season is during Christmas and New Years, while the high season extends until May. Plan to visit the islands outside these months if you want to save some money.
