Cat Island Travel Seasons
Located just off the Tropic of Capricorn, Cat Island enjoys a warm tropical climate. There is little difference in the temperature ranges between summer and winter. Winter though tends to be a little less rainy and humid. The months of November through May are therefore a popular time of year to visit. The days and nights are still blissfully warm without being stiflingly hot and humid.
