Barbados Weather in May

Nothing beats Barbados weather in May.  This is a great time to visit as fares are significantly lower than in the high season, which lasts from December 15th to April 14th.  

Barbados climate in May is sunny and warm with brief isolated showers.  

This favorable pre-hurricane season weather is all but guaranteed and it is one of my favorite times of year to visit Barbados.

May vacation - my little guy at Holetown Beach


Hotel room rates are especially good at this time of year but be aware of the inevitable hike in airfares due to summer travel starting in June.

Waiting until the last minute to book travel to Barbados or any other Caribbean island is not a good idea.  Try to book early to lock in the best fares, if you can.

Could not get this kid off the beach!
