St. Lucia weather in April helps explain why eastern Caribbean cruises are so popular in the spring.

April is part of the island's dry season, which usually goes from January through May.

St. Lucia is a popular cruise port in part because it's one of the southernmost islands in the Caribbean. It also happens to be one of the prettiest islands, at least in my opinion.

Great weather helps too.

Rainfall in April

The average rainfall in St. Lucia during April is a little more than two inches, according to historical data from the St. Lucia Meteorological Service.

This average is about the same as February and March. January and May average about three inches.

Even better, it rains an average of 12 days during the month, which is the lowest total of any month during the year.

By comparison, the total days with rain during a month is 20 or more from July through November. Total rainfall reaches nearly eight inches a month in September and October during the peak activity of the annual Caribbean hurricane season.

Temperatures in April

April isn't the warmest month of the year in St. Lucia, but it's pretty close. The average high temperature is nearly 86 degrees Fahrenheit or 30 Celsius. The average low is 76 Fahrenheit or 24 Celsius.

Unlike northern destinations such as the Bahamas, seawater is usually comfortable enough for swimming throughout the day. Water temperatures range between the daily high and low air temperatures.

Average temperatures are only about two degrees Fahrenheit higher in the summer and two degrees lower in the winter.

Should I Go in April?

April is one of the best months to visit St. Lucia for low risk of rain and warm daytime temperatures.

Both cruise and overnight visitors who have a choice on which month to visit can wait for mildly warmer weather later in the year. But the risk of rain will climb quickly.
