WHEN TO GO
Thanks to its tropical setting, Barbados stays toasty warm all year round – temperatures tend to hover in the mid to high 20s, although the mercury can top 30 at times. Trade winds stop things getting too scorching, though. Bear in mind that the island has a rainy season – if you want the driest weather, head here between December and May. There’s also a small risk of hurricanes between June and October, but these are rare, and hotels are well prepared for them.
