The climate of Freeport (Bahamas)
Freeport  is located on the northerly situated island of Grand Bahama. Freeport is a free trading zone, this means companies donít have to pay taxes. Because of this Freeport has become the second largest city in the Bahamas over the past few years. Since the 1950s Freeport is a popular holiday destination; also because of the large number of casinos the city has to offer. Sailing and golfing are also popular activities during a stay in Freeport. Freeport is in the vicinity of Lucaya, which is a popular stop-over for cruise lines. Bear in mind that if you want to leave this free trading zone you will always have to pay a tax of five dollars.

Just like the rest of the Bahamas Freeport has a tropical savannah climate. The year can be divided into two seasons; a rainy season and a dry period. The rainy season is from June till September and can be quite heavy. Rainfall can be so heavy it is best compared to taking a shower. During this period there is a risk of hurricanes and tropical depressions. The dry period is the best time to visit Freeport. Temperatures are pleasant then and humidity figures are much lower than in the rainy season.
