The Atlantic hurricane season runs June through December and threatens beach vacation destinations across the Caribbean Basin and the U.S. Southern Tier. Unpredictable weather wreaks havoc on a beach vacation and leaves travelers with few alternatives. However, some destinations are mostly outside the typical hurricane tracks, making the ideal destination for beach vacations during hurricane season. While these destinations aren’t completely devoid of storms, the general rule is that islands closest to South America are more sheltered.
Don’t let hurricane season stop your beach vacation plans—visit one of these countries outside the path of the most vacation-disrupting storms of the season.
