Isla Margarita is blessed with one of the most fantastic climates in the world. We basically have a desert climate with long periods of little or no rain and low humidity. The daytime temperature only changes about 4ºC over the whole year. Daytime temperatures at Playa El Agua on the north coast range from a high of 31ºC (87ºF) in September to low of 26ºC (80ºF) in January.
Nightime temps are about 3ºC cooler. The temperatures on the south and west side of the Island (Juan Griego) can be a few degrees warmer as they receive a land wind while the north and east side gets the sea breeze. In addition, Margarita Island is outside the hurricane zone with most storms going North of us. In the last 17 years, we were only brushed once by the edge of a tropical storm (1992 – tropical storm Brett). There are also no volcanoes and the risk of earthquake is very low. There is no fog or hail and the rain, when it comes, seldom lasts very long. We receive, on average, more than 320 days a year of 8 hours of sun or more.To see a current satellite picture of what the weather is doing go to: this weather site.
