When to Trinidad and Tobago?

The islands boast a tropical climate all year round, but the best time to visit is during the dry season, which usually lasts from January to May. During this period, there is no shortage of sunny days and warm temperatures, while rainfall is a rarity. But if you want to experience lively and colorful carnival celebrations, plan your visit in February or March, when the islands come alive with music, dance and elaborate costumes.
