Planning a Caribbean vacation? It's important to know when the risk of rain, storms and even hurricanes is highest. The official hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, but the greatest risk is between mid-August and early October. The Caribbean is a popular destination for cruises and hotel vacations, but it's important to be aware of the potential for bad weather. While the risk of hurricanes increases as the season moves from summer to fall, that doesn't mean you should avoid the Caribbean altogether.
By understanding when the riskiest times are, you can plan your vacation accordingly. If you're looking for a time with less risk of bad weather, consider visiting in late spring or early summer. If you do decide to visit during hurricane season, make sure you have a plan in place in case of an emergency. Have an evacuation plan and make sure you have travel insurance that covers natural disasters.
