Due to the trade winds blowing to the Antilles from the Atlantic side, there is a lot of precipitation in the north-eastern regions of the country; about 1,000 millimeters per year. In the west of the country however, it does not shower as frequently with the average annual figures not exceeding more than 300 millimeters. The humidity in the Antilles nonetheless, is high. All year round, it does not fall below 75%. It is worth noting that some part of the Antilles for example, Sint-Eustatius, is located within the area of the so-called Caribbean belt of hurricanes where several destructive hurricanes takes place during the year. Such air masses however, do not reach Curaçao and Bonaire.
The natural conditions of the Caribbean Sea are also simply incomparable. The water temperature practically does not change throughout the year. It only warms up to a maximum of 26°C (in early autumn). The most relatively “cold” water in the sea can be experienced at the end of winter when the temperature gets to about 22°C. A sunny day on the islands is quite long. Most of the days here are clear but from April to May, virtually the entire territory of the country experiences short spring rains, occurring mostly in the afternoons. Also in the northeastern regions, the rainiest period is observed from the end of August until the end of October. It is worth noting that during the rainy season, the air temperature does not drop. High humidity and high temperature provoke the spread of various infections. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Top periods for vacation in Netherlands Antilles

St. Barts The Antilles are a real paradise on earth. The weather here is almost constant throughout the year. Therefore, the tourist season lasts all year round; with the only exception being the north-western regions. This is due mainly to the fact that there are prolonged showers and destructive hurricanes in this region from the beginning of August to the end of October. During the rest of the year, the islands can be quite calm for touring. On the other hand, the highest influx of tourists to the Antilles resorts is observed at the end of winter and lasts until the end of May. It is during this period that the weather on the islands is maximally suited for beach holidays. The climate is stable and the temperature rises to 25-26°C. At the same time, there is no exhausting heat, as a refreshing breeze constantly blows from the sea. It should be noted that in late spring, half-hourly rains are witnessed almost every day at noon in some regions. However, this as often as not, does not affect a vacation because the soil instantly dries up after the rain. The water in the sea does not cool down, and the sun continues to warm up as well.
The main type of entertainment in the Antilles is active rest. The very location of the state literally indicates what kinds of entertainment are …

Nonetheless, it should be noted that the humidity increases slightly during this period, and also rains and hurricanes quite often pass through. There is also a stable temperature which only rises by the beginning of autumn. On a whole, a rather peculiar climatic condition is experienced. Tourists from temperate climatic zones will find it difficult to tolerate such hot and humid weather.

For those who want to take part in professional windsurfing, it is best to come to the Antilles, particularly to the windsurfing capital, the island of Barbados from the end of November until the very beginning of summer.
Fans of diving also come to the islands in the spring and winter months. It should be noted that near some of the islands, there are whole underwater cities (many created artificially) from sunken ships. It is also worth mentioning that you can enjoy the local flora and fauna here at any time of the year. Soils here are quite fertile, and on some islands you will find simply incredibly exotic botanical gardens containing exhibits you will not find anywhere else. Many people come to the Antilles for the sake of high-quality and bright yachting. Regattas here start from the middle of January and last till the middle of spring. May is a great time to go on a safari. In the winter and spring season, waves of incredible night feasts and exciting parties are organized all over the islands. It is no surprise therefore that fans of clubbing and night life come to this exotic country during this period.
