Travel During Non-Peak Season

Sandwiched between rainy season and the winter crowds, December is a sweet spot where both weather and affordability collide. However, don’t write off travel during hurricane season, which spans half the year. You can save significantly during this period, and there are ways to troubleshoot the small risk that weather may pose to vacation plans.
