The climate of Abaco (Bahamas)
Abaco is an archipelago in the Bahamas. This archipelago consists of two large islands: Great Abaco and Little Abaco and several small islands: Wood Cay, Elbow Cay, Lubbers Quarters Cay, Green Turtle Cay, Great Guana Cay, Castaway Cay, Man-o-War Cay, Stranger's Cay, Umbrella Cay, Great Stirrup Cay, Walker's Cay, Moore's Island, and Sandy Point. On several of these islands all kinds of resorts and hotels can be found that offer all kinds entertainment. IN the city of Hope Town the world famous red and white striped lighthouse can be found. Several National Parks can be enjoyed on the Abaco Islands, among those are: Pelcan Cay National Park, Tilloo National Park and the Abaco National Park. The most important city is Marsh Harbour which also is the third largest island of the Bahamas. The Abaco Islands have three airports and a golf course.

The Abaco Islands have a tropical savannah climate because of a warm gulf stream and a mild trade wind. This climate can be divided into two seasons. A rainy season and a dry period. During the rainy season heavy rainfall is not uncommon. Rain usually falls during the late afternoon or the evening. The dry period is the most popular among tourists because temperatures are a little lower and humidity figures are more pleasant. In this part of the world there is a risk of tropical depressions and hurricanes all year round.
