June weather in St. Lucia??

June to September is supposed to be the rainy season. We are planning to go for our honeymoom early June and stay at Ladera (no AC). Can anyone comment on the weather i.e. humidity, rainy? Thanks

we spent a week late June/early July in St. Lucia a few years back. It was VERY hot. Our goal was complete relaxation - so we sat on the beach under a palm frond umbrella all day and swam and snorkled to cool off every little while. We stayed at Anse Chastanet (heavenly) which is not air conditioned and took it very easy. You will no doubt have a powerful ceiling fan over your bed which
does keep things reasonably comfortable at night. We had no problems with rain (it rains for a few minutes most afternoons - very refreshing!) The humidity was pretty bad. We had a wonderful time despite the heat - but I have to admit that I felt bad for some of the younger, honeymooning couples at our hotel who seemed all set for various active pursuits (tennis - dancing, hiking the rainforest, etc) and were finding it difficult going in the heat.
We did enjoy a couple of half day excursions (to the drive through volcano - up to Castries by boat) - all very interesting stuff - but were happiest lolling in the shade watching our son play endlessly with a coconut!
St. Lucia really is paradise - but, like most of the caribbean - it's good and hot in the summer.

My wife and I just got back from our 15th anniversary to St. Lucia without the kids. We stayed at Ladera June 25th to June 30th. The weather was wonderful. One day there was an afternoon downpour but it was fine. We even got to see the most incredible rainbow over Soufriere complter from end to end. We had taken a water taxi back to Soufriere from Anse chastenet and I got it on film. The water is beautiful. The late afternoon that it rained, we still swam. What the heck, you get wet anyway.

As Ladera was at the top of the mountain/hill, there was always a constant slight breeze that kept the bugs away. There was no humidity to speak of. The weather there is 78d to 88d year round. You won't have to worry about rain at Ladera even though the 4th wall is open.

Enjoy, and Congratulations!

If you have any questions, you can email me!

We were in St Lucia end Auygust begning of Sept. Weather much better than we had anticipated. Most days were hours and hours of blue skies interspersed with a few sudden down pours which everyone ignored knowing the blue skies would re-appear within minutes. Was humid however and when breeze dropped in the evenings and we were glad of air conditioning in our room.

Mark, most of the Caribbean Islands that are very lush, like St. Lucia get some rain almost every day or every other day. These are of short duration. In June the hottest days will be about 90 degrees and about 74 or so at night. Humidity will be highest in the evening. But usually the trade winds will make it very confortable. Exception, will be if you get a sunburn, you'll feel 10 degrees hotter all the time. Be easy with the tropical sun, avoid it between 10-2, even if it's cloudy.That's when you get some of the worst burns because people forget to put protection. Another thought, get weather insurance.

My fiance and I have booked our two week honeymoon to St.Lucia May 29 to June 12. We will be spending one week at Odyssey and the second week at Ladera, so we too are curious about the temperature during this time. Anyone else traveling the same time?

We too are going on our honeymoon (Jalousie Hilton in Soufriere) May 29-June 6th. Never been, so can't comment on weather. I'm told by a colleague that time of year is good - very beginning of 'rainy season' so it shouldn't be a problem
