Caribbean holidays are the order of the day for anyone looking to escape the winter blues, with temperatures throughout the British winter time averaging anything from 20 to 26 degrees Celsius across the Caribbean.
A holiday to the Caribbean is a sun worshipper's paradise, with long stretches of unspoilt beaches and clear waters.

The Caribbean benefits from beautiful weather for much of the year, though December to April are typically the driest months. You might prefer to avoid hurrican season, which generally falls between June and November.
Many of the islands enjoy regular events, carnivals and festivals, which gives holidaymakers the opportunity to experience a taste of typical Caribbean culture. Typically, the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday each February is Carnival time. And Carnival time in the Caribbean means parties, parades and plenty of dancing.

Coral rich waters, refreshing cocktails and pristine beaches are what, generally, make up the Caribbean destinations. That doesn’t necessarily make for the easiest place to pack for, though, and you need to be aware of what you will need for a Caribbean holiday.
Swimwear, beach cover-up, shorts, t-shirts, tank tops and flip flops should get you sorted for the daytime on the beach. Into the evening and a sweater, long-sleeve shirts, linen pants and comfortable shoes are ideal for being comfortable and relaxed in the bars and restaurants.
We all know it is warm in the Caribbean so don’t chance your luck and make sure you are well stocked up on sunscreen and lip balm with a sun hat and sunglasses to keep you safe for the intense sun. Insect repellent is always handy and a small first aid kit can also be useful.
Whether it is the Shirley Heights in Antigua or the Chichèn Itza in Cancun, there are often day trips from your resorts so it is worth taking a day bag to carry any necessities when exploring. Finally, it doesn’t happen often, but there can be a bit of rain! Oftentimes, this only lasts for a few minutes but a light raincoat or umbrella may (or may not) come in handy.
Tourism is at its peak across the Caribbean in the winter months of Europe and North America. It is a classic escape from the dull and dreary weather that we have to endure. With this in mind, December through April is the common time to go, when humidity is low, rainfall minimal and the nights refreshingly cool.
If you are looking to keep the cost down and find a quieter resort then take a look at the summer and autumn but be aware that it is slightly warmer, a lot stickier and is prone to showers and heavy downpours. Keep in mind that June to November is hurricane season.
