Is April an off season around PR and Virgin Islands? How is the weather in April? Will it be rainy? That being said I am trying to avoid crowds but hopefully all touristy stuff is still operational

The only real "off season" here in PR is September/October. That's the height of hurricane season and many local businesses owners tend to take their own vacations then, do renovations/repairs/upkeep or just scale back operations. Having said that, you can always find "touristy stuff" to do here year-round.

April is actually still a busy time on the island, especially if the winter has been particularly harsh in the States. Temperatures that time of year range in the low-70s to mid-80s, humidity is still relatively low and "rainy season" won't have started yet.

Hope this helps.

Hi season in PR is during the Winter as many people visit PR trying to escape the winter cold. During the month of March/April you should try to avoid Good Friday. As a turist I would avoid the week of March 29th to April 2nd due to stors closing specially on April 1st and 2nd. Besides that anytime is a good time to visit PR.

Speaking of hotel prices, the high season is from November to the end of April, but as others said, in terms of tourism per se, the real "off season" is during september & october.

The last week of March, 1st week of April is school vacation week for many. That could effect the price of airline tickets as well as hotels prices.

Thanks for the replies. What I really meant to ask is if April is a good time to visit? will the the hotel and airline rates be lower? - how badly are the rains during May?

You can take a look at the weather page in my blog for more "average" info ... www.puertoricodaytrips.com/weather/#average
