When to go Where

This guide will help you determine the right destination at the right time

Frost be damned, you want to go to Paris? We'd be the last ones to stop you! But, we feel morally obligated to remind you, that your dream destination may not be so dreamy in the dead of winter, or heat of summer.  Here are some of the most popular romantic honeymoon destinations -- some because they enjoy relatively sublime weather year-round -- along their not-so-pretty seasons.


Best months: March to July, October and November 

Worst months: Far from horrible, December and January are coolest (average afternoon temperature is 75 degrees); August and September are hottest (average 92 degrees). The wettest months are from November to March, each Island will have its own distinctions as well.


Note: In general, every island's northern shore gets more rain than the southern, especially on Kauai and the Big Island during December and January.


Best months: November to April 

Worst months: It is hottest (up to 89 degrees on average) and rainiest from June to October


Best months: May to October    Worst month: January and February 


Best months: Technically, December to May, when the area is coolest and enjoys the most wind, but average temperatures year-round hover between 78 and 88 degrees

Worst months: "Official" hurricane season runs from June to November; the worst months are Mid-August, September, and October (islands near South America -- Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Trinidad, and Tobago -- are outside the hurricane “danger zone”)

Note: High-altitude and coastal spots are cooled by trade winds year-round (a good salve during the hotter and more humid summer months)


Best months: May through September or October   Worst months: December to February 


Best months: March, April, October, November 

Worst months: May to September 

Note: The Florida Keys experience temperate, Caribbean-like weather year-round. 


Best months: March, April, October, November 

Worst months: June to September 

Note: July and August are scorchers here, but at least it's a "dry" heat (humidity is very low year-round)


Best months: October to May 

Worst months: Rainy season runs June through September, but usually only involves a short daily dousing. It is also hotter and more humid during the summer months.

Note: Coastal playgrounds and low-lying sections of the country are hotter than higher-altitude destinations such as Mexico City, Guadalajara, and the heartland "Silver Cities."


Best months: October to February 

Worst months: Hottest between March and May; very rainy from June to September 


Best months: May to October 

Worst months: December to February (hot, humid, and rainy); Tahiti lies well outside the Pacific cyclone zone and while Fiji does not, it is rarely hit during the highest-risk months of January and February
