      Frequently Asked Questions

      What is the cheapest month to go to the Caribbean?

      September is the cheapest time to visit the Caribbean, as hurricane season peaks during this month. If you do visit this region during September, be prepared, as you may encounter storms which could disrupt travel plans.

      What month is the best to go to the Caribbean?

      February is the best month to visit the Caribbean. The weather is perfect (but not too hot) and the Carnival festival experience gives you a taste of the culture. Do expect to pay top dollar, however, if you travel during this timeframe, as December through April is peak tourist season in the region.

      How many days are ideal for a honeymoon?

      Seven to twelve days will give you ample time to relax and enjoy your Caribbean honeymoon. If you have two weeks or more, consider island hopping or cruising (instead of just visiting one island) to experience different locales.

      Where do most couples honeymoon?

      Some of the most popular honeymoon destinations include Bali, Italy, Hawaii, and Paris, France. Jamaica, the Caribbean Islands, and the Maldives are also popular honeymoon destinations.
