Bridgetown is the capital and largest city on the island of Barbados with approximately 100,000 people living in the metropolitan area. It is loccated in along the southwest coast of the island and forms the administrative and cultural heart of Barbados as well as being and important financial centre for the West Indies. It is also one the bigger cities and more important tourist destinations within the entire region. It has a lot to offer for travellers, with some fine British building style influences, markets, square, cathedrals, churches and synagoges as well as good infrastructure in general. The international aiport is nearby with good connections. If you want something else than sun and fun, this city deserves a day or two at least.




Bridgetown has a hot and humid tropical climate with average daytime temperatures between 28 and 30 degrees Celcius and average nights around 23 degrees Celcius. Most rain falls between June and October with a change of hurricanes from August onwards. Therefore, the drier (and slightly cooler) December to April period is the best time to visit weatherwise. Unfortunately prices rise sharply during this period and the months of November and May still have good weather. So budgetwise these latter months may be a good option as well.
