We have gathered travel information, facts and weather for Bahamas to help plan your trip. We hope this page helps you plan a great trip to this beautiful country!
Although most travelers head to the Bahamas to experience the comforts of the top-class all-inclusive resorts, a vacation in the country doesn’t mean just lying by the pool. There are more than 700 islands available to explore, with vast and colorful marine life and some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the world. You may even be in the water with some of the most famous residents, the swimming pigs! There is also delicious cuisine, like seafood and fresh fruit, that should help put the Bahamas on your travel bucket list.
We spent an amazing week with some of our grandkids in the Bahamas. They enjoyed hanging out with ”Grammie and Papa”, playing on waterslides, making sand castles, exploring an aquarium, and seeing the famous swimming pigs!

When to go…
The best time to visit for great Bahamas weather is in the winter months from November to April, as they are dryer. During December to March, however, the northern and western islands can be quite cool and can ruin your beach plans. We think the Bahamas make for a great spring break trip, though. The summer and early fall months are the rainy season and can get very hot. Beware that hurricanes are possible in early fall!
Best Things to Do
- Go swimming with the pigs at Pig Beach
- Go to Atlantis on Paradise Island for waterslides and more
- Snorkel or scuba dive to see turtles and dolphins
