Bahamas Travel Guide – Part 2

The temperatures of the Bahamas do not fluctuate much between the winter and summer months. Average temperatures in the Bahamas tend to hover around 85 in the summer months and 75 during the winter.  Summer brings with it the humidity that the tropics are known for, and there is a much greater chance you will be caught in the rain.

The Bahamas is a year-round destination but the Bahamas Peak season is in the winter months from December to April. This is when hotels, cruise lines, and resorts charge their highest prices.  This is because this is when most North Americans like to travel south to escape the blustery winters. Winter also happens to be the driest season here. If you plan to visit during this time it may be wise to make reservations at least a couple of months in advance and even earlier if you plan on a Christmas vacation or plan to visit in the month of February.

The islands’ “off season” runs from late spring to late fall. The summers can become quite hot, but the trade winds of the Caribbean make these days tolerable. These cool breezes usually make the morning, late afternoon, and evening a more pleasant experience. In the fall temperatures become much more tolerable and the cool breezes of the Trade winds ensure comfortable days and nights.

Hurricane Season

Hurricane season in the Caribbean officially last from June 1 to November 30. Hurricanes in the Bahamas are actually fairly infrequent here, and when one does come, satellite forecasts generally give adequate advance warning so that precautions can be taken.
