Best Times to Visit Barbados

The best time to visit Barbados is July to November. Hurricanes, schmurricanes -- they rarely hit the island, and you could attend one of the lively festivals if you vacation at that time of year. Temperatures stay between the mid 70s and mid 80s year-round, so there's really very little reason to travel during the peak season from December to April.


This is Barbados' busiest season, when hotels tend to double in cost. If you're planning a visit for this time of year, be aware that some hotels may require you to purchase a meal plan, which isn't normally necessary during the low season.

Key Events:


The temperatures remain comfortable at this time of year, plus prices take a dive following the harried winter.

Key Events:


It's certainly possible for a bad storm to hit at this time of year -- there will be quick spurts of rain many days -- but hurricanes rarely touch down. Prices drop as much as 50 percent on the swanky resorts, and you'll be around for some of the island's most rousing parties.
