The Bahamas are made up of over 700 island and are found in the north east of the Caribbean sea, just below Florida. The climate is tempered by the cooling trade winds and is cooler than other Caribbean islands due to their location. The average temperature in the Bahamas range from 80 to 85°F / 27 to 32°C in the summer and 70 to 78°F / 21 to 27°C in winter. Evenings can be cool due to the onshore breeze. 

The wet season runs from June to November; the two wettest months are October and June. Although some days are wet and grey in the rainy season, showers usually pass quickly. The island has over 300 days of sunshine each year. Although officially in the hurricane belt, hurricanes rarely hit the Bahamas, they usually pass to the west and head towards the U.S. mainland or south towards Cuba and Jamaica.
