Should You Avoid Travel to the Caribbean During Hurricane Season?
Since the Caribbean lies inside the Atlantic hurricane track and the best off-season Caribbean vacation rental rates fall within hurricane season (May-November), some travelers hesitate to take advantage of travel savings during this period. The chance of a hurricane disrupting your travel plans is minimal and improved weather forecasting provides advance notice of potential storms. Nevertheless, it pays to keep an eye on advance weather forecasts and protect travel investments with travel insurance. Another option is to vacation in the most southern Caribbean destinations such as Aruba or Barbados that lie outside the hurricane paths especially during the peak storm periods from mid-August through early October
