Climate: The islands forming the archipelago of Trinidad and Tobago are located just north-east of the coast of Venezuela, and are the southernmost of the Lesser Antilles, although some geographers do not consider them as part of the said Lesser Antilles because of their eccentric position, together with Barbados. The climate of Trinidad and Tobago is tropical, hot all year round, with little seasonal variation: the maximum temperatures hover between 31°C and 33°C from the coolest to the hottest months. September and October are the most sweltering months, and January and February the least hot. Luckily, the northeast trade winds blow all year round, tempering the heat. The best time to visit Trinidad and Tobago is from January to April, which is by far the driest period of the year. Since these islands are almost always outside of the hurricanes paths, in theory you can also choose the summer, keeping in mind that it is very rainy and also a bit muggy. December is still a rainy month, but it's outside of the hurricane season, and also a little cooler.
