Winter (December-February) is the best time to visit Bahamas
Winter season is considered to be the best time to visit the Bahamas. It is appropriate for people who want to escape snow and ice during chilly winters and want to relax at sunny beaches in the Bahamas. The Bahamian winters will give you feel like late spring with moderate climate but it can get chilly in the early morning and at night. The temperature during this season ranges between 25-degree celsius during the day time to 17-degree celsius at night. As this time of the year is the peak time, you need to get reservations at least 2 to 3 months prior. Prices skyrocket and you'll likely be waiting in line for everything from your rental car to your tee time. At some hotels, it is impossible to get accommodations during Christmas and New Years. In the Bahamas, hotels charge their highest price during this season, therefore do not opt for this time if you do not want to spend way too much and want to avoid the crowd. Also, winter is the driest season of all.
