Best Time to Travel to the Bahamas
Deciding to go on vacation is the easiest step in the planning process. The second step is to figure out where you want to vacation. There are so many different places to go, that narrowing down your options can be quite difficult. If you decide to take an all inclusive Bahamas vacation, your next step is to decide what time of year you are going to travel.
If your vacation times are already predetermined according to your line of work, then you don’t get the luxury of planning your trip around outside factors. However, if you get a certain number of days off each year and can choose when you get to go on vacation, there are some factors to take into consideration when picking a time to go.
One of the factors that really doesn’t play a part in planning a vacation to the Bahamas is the weather. There is only really a ten degree difference between the summer and winter, so it really doesn’t matter that much. Especially when traveling in the winter from the cold weather back home, just about anything will feel warm and toasty, even if it is ten degrees colder than the summer months. If you are trying to choose your dates based on weather alone, you will probably want to look into the rainy season, versus the average temperatures. Summer in the Bahamas is generally the rainy season. This will usually make the prices for your all inclusive family vacations to be a little bit more expensive in the winter versus the summer.
If you don’t want to travel to the Bahamas in the winter, there are some good points about traveling during the summer months. Since it will be the rainy season, there will be less people across the board. The most populous cities will be less crowded and offer up a fun atmosphere to boot. You will find your tours will be more in depth and more lengthy with less tourists around. In addition to fewer people around, you can also save some big bucks by going in the summer. You can find some pretty good deals on all inclusive Caribbean vacations simply by traveling in July.
One very important thing to remember about traveling to the Caribbean is that hurricane season lasts from June through November. While the odds that a hurricane will hit while you are in the area are slim, you should keep this in the back of your mind, just in case your travel plans are disrupted. If you do happen to get stuck in a hurricane, just listen to what the locals tell you to do, since they have been through this a time or two.
