April brings wonderful weather to most Caribbean Islands. It is an in-between month, both for temperature and rainfall. But neither heat nor rainfall get extreme enough to spoil a vacation of relaxing and playing on the beach.

Temperature

April temperatures are fairly consistent throughout the Caribbean, with pleasantly hot days and warm nights. The coolest days are in the Bahamas in the north, while the warmest weather is in Trinidad.

Ocean temperatures range from 77 degrees Fahrenheit in the Bahamas to 81 °F at Curaçao in the south.

Rainfall

April is still a reasonably dry month in the Caribbean, although the rain starts to pick up for most places as the dry season draws to a close. For weather stations on many southern islands, such as Bonaire, Curaçao and Tobago, April is the year's driest time.
