Most people think of the Caribbean as a winter vacation destination. The sun, the warm weather, the beach and hot sand under our feet...we all dream about it during the cold winter months, making a Caribbean getaway perfect at that time of year.
So most people don't think about traveling to the islands during the summertime. But if you love the Caribbean, are there reasons to go during these "low-season" months? I'd say yes, there are plenty of advantages to travel during this time of the year - but there are also disadvantages as well. I have traveled to the West Indies many times during all seasons and will share the pros and cons of a summer vacation the the islands here.
If you're thinking about either a family vacation this summer, or perhaps a romantic getaway for two, let me present some reasons why (and why not) to consider a trip to the Caribbean this summer.
