The best time to visit the Maldives off the Caribbean
You wouldn’t want to go to a place when it rains a lot and when the sky is so gloomy and dull, would you? Let’s see what is the best time to visit these two places 😉.
The temperature in the Maldives usually hovers around 25-30 degrees and drops at night, but it’s usually the same all year round. However, there are wet and dry seasons, so December to April are the best months to visit, due to the warm and less windy weather at that time.
The Caribbean is known for its tropical nature. The temperature is usually sunny and warm at all times. However, tropical storms and hurricanes can occur during June and November, so it isn’t an ideal time to visit.
Imagine having a conversation with marine life beneath the surface of the waves as you explore the beauty of Mother Nature in the deep blue waters. You can experience something like this in both the Maldives and the Caribbean!
