temperatures in the 80s (upper 20s Celsius) during the day and 70s (low 20s Celsius) at night. However, be sure to pack an umbrella next to your swimsuit since tropical showers are fairly frequent (don’t worry: they blow over so quickly you’ll barely notice). The weather gets more intense during hurricane season, which lasts from June to November, so if you’re traveling at this time of the year, you might want to get cancellation insurance in case a hurricane hits before you leave.

We stayed at Gallows Point and Cruz Bay is an easy walk down the hill from there. There are a bunch of cute shops, not a ton, but a enough to have a quiet wander around through. There are also a few cafes. Had the my first and best breakfast burrito of my life there. Wish I could remember the name of the place (Texas something, I think) but the area is so small - a bit of wandering and I'm sure you'll find it.

It's like Mayberry if Mayberry had alcohol, drugs, and the most beautiful beaches in the world.
