Barbados is a popular vacation destination partly because it experiences great weather throughout the year. Temperatures all year round fluctuate only between 70 and 89°F (21 and 31°C). Weather is distinguished throughout the year by rainy and dry seasons. Rainy season generally runs from June to October. Although heavy tropical downpours are common during this period, they tend to be sporadic and dry up quickly.

Best Time to Visit Barbados

Because of the great weather year-round, Barbados can be visited at any time of the year. Peak tourist season coincides with major vacation periods. Spring break attracts young college students from the US, the summer months are when many cruises stop on Barbados, and Christmas is when many Europeans abandon the cold weather of their home countries for Barbados’ beaches.
