The Caribbean hurricane season runs from June through the end of November. It can sound like an unfortunate time for hurricanes to occur because it is during wedding season in the U.S. and some summer months. But did you know that there are islands in the Caribbean that are outside of the hurricane belt?
Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Barbados, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago, and San Andrés and Providencia Islands are all outside of the region in the Caribbean Sea where hurricanes don’t visit.
With that being said, don’t delay booking that much-needed vacation to one of these beautiful islands.
Consider a Cruise
If you book a cruise, they will keep a watchful eye on the weather, and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the endless buffet and drinks.
If you visit the islands we listed above, you will not have to worry about coming in contact with a hurricane. The most that could happen on those islands is a small thunderstorm. Even then, the captain and crew members have your best interests in mind. They are trained on how to avoid storms.
When You Should Visit
The most popular times to visit the Caribbean are during the months of December through April. During those months, you have warm weather, no hurricane risk, and barely any rain.
It is a safe and pleasant time to visit during December- April. The only downside is the islands get very busy during these months, and prices can be at their highest.
When Hurricanes Occur
Keep in mind most hurricanes occur in the western Caribbean by August and September. The peak time for hurricanes in the Caribbean is in October, when the ocean’s temperature is at its warmest.
If you want to be sure to avoid hurricanes, you can study their typical patterns to see where they form in the Caribbean and when.
