Weather in October
reverses the peak heat conditions in Puerto Rico
as the temperatures gradually decrease by the end of the month. The day high temperatures average below 88°F (31.1°C), and the nights dip to 76°F (24.4°C).
The sunshine lasts for a daily 7.5 hours, and the rays are less intense compared to peak summer. The conditions are still muggy, and it pays to wear sweatshirts and light summer clothing during the day. People love the white sand on the beaches and the warm water that is unlike the cold waters of the North Atlantic.
The best times are to visit in the morning or late afternoon after showers that cool the temperatures. Do not discount storm activity and torrential downpour. Keep an eye on the weather for sudden changes. The tourist numbers dwindle in October in Puerto Rico as the precipitation picks up.
