Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
FH and I really want to go to one of the Sandals resorts in St. Lucia. It looks beautiful!! I'm hoping by picking St. Lucia that we will be safer than if we picked one of the other locations (bahamas, antigua, or Jamaica), because its more south. With it being Hurrican season I'm a little concerned. I've had family tell me that by september 29 and into early october the bad part of Hurrican season is mostly over. Plus to just pay the insurance and hopfully all will be well. I have gone on sandals' website and have seen that people have gone in september or october and had an amazing time!! one couple even had their ceremony there.
also i found this online: Off-Season (hurrican season)
The hurricane season, along with increased rain and temperatures, marks what is generally considered to be the off-season in St. Lucia. June through November are the wettest months and the temperature will tend to rise a few degrees making the heat more of an issue for vacationers. During this period, many restaurants will close for weeks at a time or shorten their dining hours. Hotels, meanwhile, will use these slower months for needed renovation or construction. If you are considering traveling to St. Lucia during this period, place calls to hotels and recreation services to check availability and the status of any renovation at the hotel. If heavy construction is taking place, noise and debris may mar your stay.
The off season, however, remains a compelling period to visit St. Lucia for those looking to avoid higher prices and crowded beaches. Prices on airline tickets and hotels will drop as much as 50 percent after mid-April and will remain low for the summer and hurricane season. Rainfall, although heightened, generally comes in the form of short showers, and those who stay close to water or air conditioning should not have trouble braving the temperature increase. Hurricane activity can be sporadic, but it is best to keep an eye on weather systems in the Atlantic to monitor any developing storms before or during your stay.
Doesnt seem so bad. I can deal with heat and humidity. just means less clothing ;-) who doesnt want that on their honeymoon.
so what do you ladies think? take the chance or should we go somewhere else? and where?
