Caribbean Weather

Hurricane Season

Mention the Caribbean and the weather and one word comes to mind: hurricane. These storms threaten the region from June 1 - November 30 although the peak of the season is September.

With hurricane season comes lower prices...so should you take the risk? Remember, hurricanes are not tornadoes. Tracking systems notify islands days in advance of the threat of an oncoming hurricane. We've twice had to leave islands due to oncoming hurricanes, ones we'd watched for days then finally decided it was time to leave.

A growing number of Caribbean resorts offer hurricane guarantees, meaning if your trip is interrupted by a hurricane, you'll receive compensation. Check with your resort to see if they offer a hurricane guarantee and what conditions the guarantee requires.

Weather Outside of Hurricane Season

Outside of hurricanes, weather in the Caribbean is a pretty boring subject. Days are warm year around, cooling slightly in the winter months (when sea temperatures are generally warm, air temperatures are warm, and nights may...or may not...be cool enough for a thin wrap.)

Weather in Bermuda and Bahamas

Remember that the Bahamas and Bermuda are not part of the Caribbean. Weather in the Bahamas is slightly cooler than the Caribbean; some cool fronts can extend down into the Bahamas and make for cooler winter days. (Our family once traveled to Nassau for spring break and had to go out and buy sweatshirts!)

Bermuda has a completely different weather pattern due to its northerly location. Look for cool temperatures (50s and 60s) until late April. Many resorts offer indoor or heated pools. Summers are warm.
