Puerto Rico Weather in May

Averages By Month

May is the start of the rainier season in Puerto Rico with 16 rainy days on average. Given the tropical climate though, “rain” means that the showers pass by relatively quickly and are generally speaking more frequent in the north. The conditions are still ideal for enjoying the beautiful beaches with highs of 88°F and water temperatures of 81°F. The sun shines over 8 hours each day and dinners can be enjoyed outside with nighttime temperatures hardly ever dropping below 76°F.

For the rainy periods, Puerto Rico has so much on offer. Chocoholics will get their thrill at the Puerto Rico Chocolate Festival. And there is so much to explore all around in the beautiful Old Town of San Juan.
