Are you travelling to Barbados?
Barbados is a coral island in the eastern Caribbean, northeast of Venezuela. The country generally experiences two seasons, the wet season runs from June to November and the dry season runs from December to May. Barbados is often spared the worst effects of the region’s tropical storms and hurricanes due to its location, which puts it just outside the principal hurricane strike zone.
