Weather in Nov

Jump to last reply

Looking for somewhere fun and tropical to celebrate my 50th birthday with a gaggle of gal pals. Ideally a a laid back ocean town where we are close to nature but have cute shopping and restaurant options. I'll be traveling the weekend of Nov. 21. I've heard this is the rainy season in Costa Rica and Puerto Rico.
Help me find a place where turning 50 won't suck!

    No one can guarantee you perfect weather no matter where you go, especially if you are planning a trip to the tropics.

    In Caribbean during late November all day rains are a rarity. Instead, you can expect mostly sunny days with an occasional brief passing shower - it might rain somewhere on the island your are visiting for some time in any given 24 hour period buy the rain is usually in the form of fast moving, brief widely scattered showers lasting minutes rather than hours. It's not unusual for it to rain in one area and there be bright sun 1/4 mile away.

    I wouldn't let the treat of of a rain shower deter me from visiting the Caribbean in late November. Pick a destination that appeals to you and your "gal pals" and go and enjoy your birthday.

    FYI - if shopping is important to you look at St. Thomas, St. Martin, Grand Cayman and Aruba as shops abound on those islands.

    Restaurants shouldn't be an an issue as you'll find plenty on just about every island.

    Sorry you haven't given us much to go on other than you want "cute shopping" and being "close to nature" so I can't give more specific island recommendations without knowing your budget, where you are flying from, how long a trip you are planning and what other things interest you and your friends.

    I can tell you that November 21 is the start of Thanksgiving Week and that's a popular time in the Caribbean, especially for families, so make your plans as soon as possible.
