Jamaica during hurricane season??

Would you take the risk?? Our original honeymoon plans aren't panning out so now we are looking at other options. We found a great place in Jamaica and it's within our budget, but it's during hurricane season.


If not, any other ideas of places we could go for a nice honeymoon in September. We want to go somewhere that has a lot of activities and things to do plus being scenic and romantic. We are also on a budget. We've never gone on vacation together so we're open to just about anything and have really no idea where to start.


Thanks!

Personally I wouldn't take the risk, especially if you want to get out and enjoy the island. We went with Hawaii. They have some pretty inexpensive packages, but no all inclusive

Hmm, I'm SO bad at geography. But if it's in the carribean islands, then there is a risk of hurricanes in September...which is why we aren't going anywhere around there :( Would have loved to though!


We are going on a cruise to Mexico -Cabo and Puerta Vallerta. Not cancun b/c that can also get hit with heavy rains and such. You should totally do the Carnival cruise leaving from Long beach on September 9th! We could be honeymoon twins!! LOL. Good luck!!

Okay Jamica's hurricane is from June 1 until November 30.  To me, heck yeah it was worth the risk!  Either stuck in the room or out in the sunshine we are going to have a great time.


 


BTW Ashlee I would bring that up to your Travel Agent or find a new one.
