Barbados is balmy most of the time, boasting some 3 000 hours of sun each year. Average temperatures run from 84 to 88 F (29-31C) during the day and about 75 to 70 F (24-26C) at night.
The rainy (hurricane) season starts in June and ends in November with the greatest concentration of rain usually occurring from August through October.
Dry season is from December to June, when apart from the odd, passing shower, the sun rules.
One of the joys of Barbados is that the coasts are all so different. They surround a rich interior of forested gullies, rolling pastures and hilltops with magnificent views.
