When to go…
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico weather is best from December to March, which are the coolest and driest months, while also not being in hurricane season. On the island, February to March is the least rainy period on the eastern and northern coasts and December to March on the southern and eastern coasts. Summer months are hot and muggy, as it is the rainy season, but the rainfall is in bursts and not days and days of solid rain, unless there is a tropical storm or hurricane. The southern coast is your best bet in the summer because of less rain.
