Not only are the waterfalls wet in Guadeloupe but the rest of the island receives plenty of additional moisture from heavy seasonal rains in the fall.

 

This French territory is made up of two main islands connected by a mangrove swamp. The result looks like a butterfly, which is why Guadeloupe is known as The Butterfly Island.

 

The cluster of two main islands and numerous smaller ones, located in the French West Indies in the southern Caribbean, is attractive to tourists in part because of its waterfalls. They include the popular Carbet Falls, a series of three tall cascading waterfalls.

 

But visitors can get plenty wet from rain as well depending on the time of year they visit. The island receives an average of 5.8 inches of rain per month, which is one of the highest averages in the Caribbean.

 

The island averages about nine inches a month in September through November; August is only somewhat better. Rainfall averages less than three inches in January through March.

 

One of the more attractive aspects of the island territory is its steady warm temperatures throughout the year. Guadeloupe’s average monthly high temperature is 86 degrees, according to the World Weather Organization. The average monthly low is 72 degrees.

 

Average high temperatures reach a peak of nearly 89 degrees in July through September, while the coolest months at about 85 degrees are December through March. Such a smaller difference in the high temperatures make just about any month predictably warm.

 

Average monthly low temperatures bottom out at about 68 degrees from January through March.

 

As a result, the best months to visit Martinique because of a combination of warm weather and light rainfall are January through March. The worst time is August through November. April, June and December have moderate amounts of rain and under normal conditions could be less risky as well.
