Thankfully St. Kitts & Nevis is still not overcrowded with tourists and there aren’t many resorts either. Instead, you’ll find nice inns and cottages, hidden among the tropical forests and just perfect if you want to relax in nature.
Climate and tourist season
Just like in the rest of the Caribbean, the climate is tropical. The weather is hot year round, with little variations in temperature and the heat is moderated by the trade winds. The rainy season lasts between June and November while the dry season lasts between December and April.
The peak tourist season is around Christmas and New Year and the high season extends until the end of April. The low season lasts between June and October while the shoulder season is represented by May and November, when you can usually find very good deals.
