Barbados weather is pleasant in year-round, with an average daily high temperature of 78 degrees, and an average daily rainfall of less than a quarter of an inch. Crowds and rates spike from mid-December through mid-April. Hurricane season, which lasts from June through October, is the best time for discount prices and fewer crowds.
Major annual events include Crop Over, a five-week summer festival that dates back to the 1780s which marked the end of the sugar season. Today, it's the island's biggest celebration with parades, parties, live Calypso music and more.
One of the liveliest places to enjoy Bajan nightlife is at Harbour Lights, a nightclub that stages a colorful dinner dance show -- complete with fire throwers and acrobatic performers -- on the beach, every Monday and Wednesday.
Be sure to try flying fish, so popular it's now an island symbol. The Waterfront Café in Bridgetown is an ideal place to sample it, perhaps accompanied by Cou Cou, a tasty corn meal and okra dish.
There's nothing like connecting with the locals to really understand a destination. The Barbados National Trust's Open House program, which takes place on Wednesday afternoons, allows vacationers to visit elegant private homes and find out how Bajans live.
For the best windsurfing, hit the Silver Sands area between November and April.
