Weather InformationBarbados has a year-round tropical climate, with temperatures averaging between 75 and 85 degrees. Gentle sea breezes consistently cool the island, providing reprieve from even the hottest days. January through June usually have the most ideal weather, while July to November are the rainier months. However, even rainy days experience a good amount of sunshine.
Crowd InformationThe winter months, as well as the Crop Over festival in July/early August, attract the most visitors. Other popular events include the Barbados Jazz Festival in January, the Holetown Festival in February, Holders Season in March, and Run Barbados in December.

When to SavePrices are significantly lower during June, August, and September; while prices peak during the winter months.
When to BookIt is best to book far in advance, especially for travel during the high season when repeat visitors are all booking the same time. In general, booking two months in advance is usually safe.
