The Bahamas are made up of over 700 islands and are found in the north east of the Caribbean Sea, just below Florida. The climate is tempered by the cooling trade winds and is cooler than other Caribbean isles due to their location. The average temperature in the Bahamas vary from 27 °C to 32°C in the summer and 21°C to 27°C in winter. Evenings can be chilly due to the onshore breeze.
The damp season runs from June to November; the two wettest months are October and June. Even though some days are wet and grey in the rainy season, showers generally pass quickly. The isle has over 300 days of sunshine each year. Although officially in the hurricane belt, hurricanes seldom hit the Bahamas, they generally pass to the west and head towards the U.S. mainland or south towards Cuba and Jamaica. The Bahamian winter is generally like an everlasting late spring -- of course, the high season for North Americans quickening to escape snow and ice. Summer brings scorching hot sun and humidity. There's a much higher chance of rain during the summer and fall. The high season usually runs from mid-December to mid-April, when hotel prices are highest.
