It also is a major port town with cargoships exporting many of its agricultural products and cruiseships bringing in thousands of tourists annualy. Everything in and around Kingstown is centred around this port function but if you want some more secluded places, there are many black and white sanded beaches nearby!
Kingstown have a hot and humid tropical climate with average daytime temperatures between 28 °C and 30 °C and average nights around 23 °C.

Unfortunately prices rise sharply during this period and the months of November and May still have good weather. So budgetwise these latter months may be a good option as well.
