Averages for St Lucia in May
Although technically April is considered the end of the prime tourist season in St. Lucia, May is an equally beautiful month with only a slight, almost imperceptible, increase in the amount of precipitation the island sees in the “dry” months of January to April.
May would be an excellent time to visit St. Lucia if you were looking to avoid some of the heavier tourist traffic.
There is a variety of activities that one can experience on this beautiful island. For example, St. Lucia has several stables. These stables offer tourists a variety of equestrian experiences while staying on the island.
Seeing the Pitons, two mountains that are part of the Lesser Antilles, is a must when visiting St. Lucia any time of year. Photograph them and, if you are more adventurous, take a guided tour of the larger Gross Piton or an unguided excursion of the Petit Piton.
May hosts a month-long celebration called, simply, St. Lucia Jazz. This event has now become popular, with many famous names having played over the years.
May tourists can also take a drive to the Treetop Canopy Adventure, a zip-line course that provides fun and excitement, especially for families with older children.
In addition, there is deep sea fishing, whale watching activities, and dolphin spotting cruises.
If you’re interested in water sports on your holiday, the Marigot Beach Club and Dive Resort is a great choice. The hotel is a PADI certified dive centre, which can accommodate both novice and experienced divers, as well as arranging other water sports, excursions and tours for their guests. The low rates are also ideal for anyone travelling on a budget.
