Weather end of May

My Husband and I are planning a trip to Cat Island the end of May. I am wondering what to expect weather wise. Also wondering how bad the bugs will be?? Thanks in advance.

May? I'm JEALOUS! Weather is sizzling! Bugs are really not a problem in May. July and August bugs are a bit more of a problem, BUT the Bahamians are quick to spray islands because they don't want too many complaining tourists. No need for concern on that issue.

To keep an eye on the current weather, I suggest you log onto www.weather underground You'll get loads of info on that site right up until the day you leave ....and 7 days after!

Hope this helps. Enjoy yourselves!

End of May still has spring showers almost daily, but they come and go quickly. You shouldn't have much concern. Most people never even stop what they are doing for more than a minute.

Buggy, yes. Since Cat island is NOT a tourist destination, the island is not sprayed like some of the others.. although the resorts will make sure they are sprayed. Since it's rainy season. Mosquitos can still be a bother.

Bring along a Deet based product if your are susceptible.

Skin So Soft and other lighter products don't work well out that way.

We were there last spring and again in August.. Buggy both times.

The buggers don't bother me, but my girlfriend was bitten quite fiercely. Bring protection.. if you don't need it - all the better.
