When is Peak Hurricane Season?

Although the Atlantic hurricane season is a long one, as the following chart shows, the peak of activity is between the middle of August and early October.

This is why some Caribbean resorts close in September and cruises during these months are often a good bargain, especially during an active hurricane season.

Based on this graph, the best time not to travel to the Caribbean is from approx. August 15-October 20.
