Puerto Rico Weather in March

Averages By Month

March is the least rainy month in Puerto Rico with only 12 days of rain on average and combined with highs of 85°F, it makes the list of the top 5 spring break destinations. The sun shines for over 9 hours each day and as the party continues during the night, temperatures stay warm too in the mid 70s F. The sea with its water temperature of 79°F invites you to dive in and cool down during the heat of the party! Finally, hurricane season has not started yet.

Enjoy the beautiful beaches during the day and some great nightlife in San Juan at night with legal drinking from the age of 18! Plenty of festivals and parties will keep you busy. Highlights include the Taste of Rums Festival and the RAMAS Festival. But not to worry, there will also be more quieter places around to enjoy for the peace-seekers.
