Barbados is a good destination for year-round sunshine, with the driest part of the year falling between December and April. Wet season arrives between June and November, with sporadic rainfall and bright but rarer sunshine. This time is very humid and although Barbados’ position as one of the easternmost Caribbean islands means it doesn’t often experience hurricanes, it is still a possibility.
Saint Lucia has a typical Caribbean climate, with a dry season stretching from December to May, with endless sunshine, dry days and cooler temperatures. The wet season brings humidity and heavy rain that keeps the island lush and green.
