San Juan’s February weather is the driest of the year and also one of the coolest.

The capital of Puerto Rico has more than 1.3 million cruise visitors either stopping at the city or beginning and ending their cruise there, according to statistics from the Caribbean Tourism Organization.

Puerto Rico tourism reaches a high point in March during spring break for schools and a low point in September during the peak of the Caribbean hurricane season.

The average high is only slightly more than January. The two months have the coolest temperatures of the year.

The average low temperature is about 70 Fahrenheit or 21 Celsius. These nighttime lows will often make seawater too chilly for swimming during the day, especially in the mornings.
