For example, the Caribbean's peak tourist season runs from the end of November until around April, when there's little to no chance of encountering a tropical storm. However, if you look at the percentage chance of being affected by a storm during the hurricane season, you will see that it is really quite low. This means that destinations such as the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica and Barbados could and should be considered as prime summer holiday spots, when the weather is typically hot and sunny, and there are countless online offers available.
Cuba's tropical storm season peaks in October, although the percentage chance of your holiday being affected by a tropical storm at this time is still only 3%
