When to go?

The best time for a Barbados Holiday is the drier months of December to April. later in the year, there is a higher chance of a tropical storm and there is certainly more rainfall, but from May to Jun and Septmber to November, hotel prices are lower and the island is less crowded so it's a great time to grab a bargain. July & August are our peak travel months so are busy and more expensive but still a great time to visit.
