That’s why the Caribbean Sea is a very popular destination among European tourists, especially in the winter. For some sailors this is also a transition, cause passing the Panama Canal they enter the Pacific Ocean.
In the Caribbean the dry season is from February to June, delivering only an occasional rain shower. From July to January, the wet season brings frequent showers with lots of sunshine and the occasional rainy day. The tropical climate of this region provides favorable temperatures throughout the year, expecting 25°C to 30°C with balmy winds. Squalls produce intense rains and sometimes winds in excess of 40 knots. The winter months, November to March, produce strong Christmas winds.

In June, the winds diminish and clock to the southeast at 10 to 15 knots.
