    spring weather in Caribbean

    Is there any significant difference in between April and May weather in the Caribbean? I'm looking at a cruise to several island including Barbados, St. Martin and Antigua and trying to decide what time of year to go.

    Very little difference and either month should be good weather.

    I think the difference between the average winter weather and the average summer weather in the Caribbean is something like 3 to 5 degrees.

    I don't agree with the 3-5 degree difference between winter and summer in the carribean. It can be much more based on my experience. December/January can be in the 70's.

    I've cruised most months and I would say temps are pretty equal in April and May. In the 80's on average.

    I said average temperature. Here is a link to a site listing January and July minimum and maximum temperatures in the Caribbean ...

    Caribbean Weather | caribbean-guide.info

    The OP is interested in:

    Barbados - Min January 74.2 - Min July 78.2 - a 4.0 degree difference
    Barbados - Max January 82.1 - Max July 85.2 - a 3.1 degree difference

    Antigua - Min January 74.7 - Min July 79.2 - a 4.5 degree difference
    Antigua - Max January 81.4 - Max July 87.4 - a 6.0 degree difference

    Welcome to Cruise @ddicts!!

    We have cruised those months in the Caribbean - temperatures will be in the 80's. Lovely time of the year to see the islands. I would probably choose April over May.

    Cruising is a wonderful way to enjoy retirement.
