Without a doubt, the Caribbean It is one of the tourist destinations most desired by tourists. In fact, many people book their trips to this area months before it is time to leave. And of course, as a large part of the planet has more vacation days in the summer months (June, July, August and September in the northern hemisphere), they take advantage of this time of year to plan their vacations to some of the countries bathed by this beautiful sea.
However, in the same way that traveling to Islamic countries during Ramadan is not very advisable, neither is going to the Caribbean in the summer months. We explain why below.
Winds up to 120 km / h
Although many people are not aware of it, the peak of the season of hurricanes in the Caribbean it is in August and September, affecting countries ranging from Mexico and Cuba to Curaçao and the island of Granada. In fact, according to statistics, during this period there are between 10 and 12 storms in which winds reach 60 kilometers per hour. Half of these storms become hurricanes with a wind speed of 120 km / h.
Best in the southern Caribbean
As you can see, statistically there is not much chance that during your summer holidays it will be very bad weather and, possibly, you will be able to spend some pleasant days sunbathing. Still, we recommend that you hire a good insurance of trips that cover delays and cancellations of flights due to bad weather. Also, you may want to consider traveling to the southern Caribbean, as most hurricanes affect the northernmost parts of the region.
