The climate in the Barbados is tropical and therefore there are only two seasons: a rainy season and a dry season. Temperatures vary very little during the year and rainfall is important, especially on the hillsides and in the center. The coast on the other hand faces less rainfall. Although cyclones are common between the months of June and November in the Caribbean Sea, they rarely hit the island of Barbados.

Between June and December, the weather in Barbados is both warm and very humid as this is otherwise known as the rainy season. The temperatures are very high and rainfall is very important. August is also the hottest and the wettest month of the year. Dirt roads turn into mud, making the exploration of nature rather difficult.

The climate of Barbados is more lenient during the dry season, which occurs between January and May. The temperatures are quite high and rainfall is generally moderate. Thus, this is the ideal time to explore the island and its natural wonders. Earlier in the year, Barbados offers a perfect time to forget the winter raging away in Europe.
