Depending on what time of year you plan for your Bahamas vacation, it may behoove you to take a peek at the local weather forecasts to get an idea of what to expect when you arrive. As far as cool weather is concerned, don’t expect to find any—so you can leave that favorite fur coat of yours at home. You won’t miss it while you’re gone.
During summer months, the weather in the Caribbean can be hot, but it can also be very humid. Since this is something not every first time traveler to the region will be used to, be sure to pack plenty of light clothing. The winter months see temperatures in the 70s and experience less humidity. For this reason, winter is the time of year that is more often recommended for vacationers with arthritis, since high humidity can exacerbate the symptoms.
