If you are planning a trip to the Caribbean, surely you know that meteorological phenomena can condition you. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for sun and beach in an all-inclusive resort or if your plans include discovering pre-Columbian cultures: Hurricanes or cyclones can spoil your trip, and although it is not frequent, it can end sooner than expected. If you have flexible dates, it is better to organize it in advance and choose the best season: we will tell you which one it is.
The best time to travel to the Caribbean
In accordance with the World Meteorological Organization, cyclone season runs from June 1 to November 31, with a peak during the months of August and September that marks its worst time, that is, the date on which you are most likely to suffer a large tropical storm.
Therefore, the months from December to May are the ideal months to travel to the Caribbean countries. The climate will be mild, with hardly any rain and moderate temperatures, perfect for enjoying its beaches and tourist attractions.
It is for this reason that you find many offers to travel to Mexico, Cuba or the Dominican Republic during the summer season. Despite being high season for Spaniards, the weather may not be with you, so prices drop. If you still decide to travel during these months, it is a good idea to stay informed of the weather during your journey, with portals such as the climate of the Government of Mexico, which informs you of the storms as they occur in the most conflictive areas, such as Quintana Roo and the Yucatan Peninsula.
The Caribbean countries are very complete destinations that do not only offer the beach tourism that makes them famous.. In Mexico you have incredible options for adventure and cultural tourism a few kilometers from the Riviera Maya, the area where the most popular hotels are. With a little organization from home, the success of your trip is assured.
