What’s the weather like in Antigua in December?
Antigua is located 17° north of the equator in the West Indies. With tropical weather all year round, temperatures remain quite high in December. Local trade winds, combined with relatively low humidity, helps control hot temperatures and makes the tropical climate more bearable. If you’re planning a holiday to Antigua in December, it’s best to leave the hat and scarf at home and opt for lightweight clothes instead.
