Best time to take a vacation to Barbados
Best Time to Go
July to November is the best time for Barbados travel, despite the increased chance of rain. Hurricanes rarely hit the island, and there are a number of festivals that take place at this time. Hotel prices tend to double for Barbados vacations during the peak season from December to April. This is a popular season because of the Barbados Jazz Festival, the Holetown Festival, and the Holders Season Festival. The off-season is from mid April to June, and the country tends to slow down and travel prices reach their lowest rates.
