Weather Averages for San Juan in April
Averages for San Juan in April
With warm weather all year round, old towns and stunning scenery, Puerto Rico is often referred to as the ‘island of enchantment’. Although primarily Spanish speaking, this Caribbean island is actually owned by the United States, providing a mix of a traditional European and modern American feel.
April is renowned for having the fewest rainy days, with an average of just 14 wet days during the month. This may seem like a lot for a British summer, but with Puerto Rico’s tropical climate, the island usually sees much more. Temperatures range from 21 to 30 degrees celsius so April in Puerto Rico is relatively hot and dry.
If visiting over Easter, visitors may find that most businesses and attractions are closed during the holiday weekend, especially on Good Friday. Easter is one of the biggest public holidays in Puerto Rico and Good Friday is a particularly solemn occasion.
Travellers needn’t worry though, there is still plenty to do in April, even during the Easter break. One thing that’s never closed is the beach and with the somewhat dry and warm weather, April is the perfect month for topping up that tan. For the absolute best beaches, visitors should hop on the Fajardo-Vieques ferry to the nearby Vieques Island. Sun Bay Beach boasts a mile of white sandy beach with palm trees and crystal clear water; the epitome of the Caribbean beach.
The streets leading to the beach are lined with vending carts selling local food which visitors can enjoy on the beach. The octopus salad is a particularly popular snack. For a slightly alternative accommodation choice, Sun Bay Beach has its own campground providing a secluded and romantic setting.
