Pack for the weather

December is one of the cooler months in Barbados, with temperatures reaching a possible 29°C / 84°F in the day, and dropping to around 23°C / 73°F at night. But, even though it is cooler this time of year, the general climate is still humid. You’ll need to wear clothing that will keep you cool and comfortable; think along the lines of lightweight clothing and natural fabrics such as cotton and linens.

Here’s a list to give you some ideas.
