A tropical cyclone is a rapidly rotating storm system characterized by a low-pressure center, a closed low-level atmospheric circulation, strong winds, and a spiral arrangement of thunderstorms that produce heavy rain and squalls. Depending on its location and strength, a tropical cyclone is referred to by different names, including hurricane, typhoon, tropical storm, cyclonic storm, tropical depression, or simply cyclone.

A hurricane is a strong tropical cyclone that occurs in the Atlantic Ocean or northeastern Pacific Ocean, and a typhoon occurs in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. In the Indian Ocean, South Pacific, or (rarely) South Atlantic, comparable storms are referred to as tropical cyclones, and such storms in the Indian Ocean can also be called "severe cyclonic storms".

Atlantic (Caribbean) Hurricane Season

Start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season: 1 June

End of the Atlantic Hurricane Season: 30 November

Peak of the Atlantic Hurricane Month: typically September

Due to the higher probability of active weather during September, some of the Caribbean Islands use this time for annual maintenance and so villas are unavailable, beach bars and restaurants are closed and tourism is minimal.

While September represents the peak month for hurricanes, we want to assure you that we actively monitor weather conditions on a daily basis throughout the entire hurricane season. Our primary goal is to ensure the safety and well-being of all guests.

In the event of any impending weather concerns, we promptly communicate relevant updates and advisories to our clients. Additionally, our island teams are committed to extending the same level of information and support to any guests currently on the island.
