6 Reasons Why January Is An Ideal Month To Visit The Caribbean

Are you planning a vacation to the Caribbean and wondering what time is best? I am here to make a case for why you should book your vacation to the Caribbean sometime in the month of January.

1. It’s Cold Everywhere Else

January is one of the coldest winter months for those living in North America and Europe especially. When it’s cold, it is also dark, miserable and wet. It is this time of climatic conditions that has you waking up being miserable every single day. The best way to escape from that temporarily and regain your sanity is by taking a vacation somewhere that’s bright and warm. The Caribbean has warm weather all year round and getting nice warm sunny weather while on your Caribbean vacation in the month of January is almost a guarantee.

2. The Temperature Is Perfect

Even though the Caribbean does not experience extreme weather conditions, some months in the middle of the year can feel scalding due to the humidity. January is one of the best months in the Caribbean regarding temperature. The temperature in the Caribbean in the month of January is usually around 25 Degrees Celsius, or 77 Degrees Fahrenheit, accompanied by a nice steady breeze. This is the perfect definition of ideal beach weather.

3. It is Not The Rainy Season

Having a lot of rainfall in the month of January on any Caribbean island is very rare. Of course you are in the tropics and a 20-minute thunderstorm can happen at any time, but dries up faster than it started and before you even notice the skies are back to being clear and blue. Sunshine-days is a big part of your tropical vacation experience, and when you vacation in the month of January, you increase your chance of having a holiday with very little to no rain.

4. A Lot More Flight Options

The Winter months are peak travel season for Caribbean islands. Due to the increase in the number of travellers to the Caribbean, major airlines usually introduce direct flights to the Caribbean islands that are usually harder to get to in the other seasons. When you travel to the Caribbean in January, getting a good or direct flight is way easier. This gives you more flexibility with your travel dates which is always a big plus when scheduling vacation time.

5. The Resorts Are At Their Best

Just like regular people, every Resort management companies and hotel owners have New Year’s resolutions. Whether it’s to improve their service and more features to increase sales, they start their year off at their best. Additionally, the month of January at Caribbean resorts is typically busy so the Resorts or usually at their very best regarding the food quality, entertainment and overall service that they offer. Nothing makes a vacation more than experiencing top notch customer service and guest appreciation.

6. It’s A Great Way To Start The New Year

It is my sincere belief that everyone should start their new year with a vacation. Christmas is such a hustle bustle that you never get time to slow down and reflect on the year that just past, so when the festivities of the Christmas season and New Year’s celebration is all over, it’s a perfect time just to get away and take a break. Clear your mind and get yourself in a refreshed state before tackling a brand new year. What better place to do that than in the Caribbean where people are warm and friendly, and you are completely removed from all material pressure of the first world countries. Start your year off right by taking a Caribbean vacation in the month of January.
