Curaçao Weather
 

Vacationers are attracted to the island of Curaçao for a number of reasons, including the duty-free shopping and beautiful beaches. But most of all, for its warm, semi-arid climate, which is perfect for the ideal tropical getaway and great fun in the sun. Curaçao maintains sunshine and warm temperatures year round, making it an excellent vacation destination for many travelers.

The temperature on Curaçao is mostly warm and pleasant, with numbers averaging about 81 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year. The island's hot temperatures are moderated by the constant tradewinds, which blow in from the east. But don't be fooled by the refreshing tropical breezes; always remember to wear adequate sun screen and drink plenty of fluids when spending time in the sun. The tradewinds are more active during the spring months and may cause Curaçao's temperatures to be a little lower during that time.

Short spring showers...

 

When visiting this intriguing Dutch Caribbean island, travelers can bask in the warm sun almost any time of year because Curaçao generally experiences less rainfall than most other Caribbean islands. In fact, the island only gets about 22 inches of rain yearly, which occurs mostly during the rainy season between October and February. Since rainfall is generally mild, travelers shouldn't be deterred from visiting the island during these months. Short spring showers usually sprinkle the island in the night hours, and sunshine takes over the skies during the daytime. Humidity is also fairly low on the island. The low humidity and rainfall and warm temperatures are ideal for vacationers who love to bask in the sun.

Hurricane season lasts from early June to November. Although the island is located outside of the hurricane belt and experiences little storm activity, Curaçao sometimes has unexpected overcast skies and rainfall when storms are brewing in other parts of the Caribbean. For the most part, though, vacationers should consider Curaçao an ideal vacation destination for beautiful weather.
