Travel Nut here… Mr TTR & I are semi-retired and LOVE to travel
The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1st to November 30th… with the greatest majority of Hurricanes happening August, September & October… Tropical Storms more in June, July and November.
So this is certainly not the best timeframe to visit the Caribbean… December thru April are most definitely the best months weatherwise… when the Tropics are a lot warmer than Continental North America.
Jamaica sits in the Greater Antilles… along with the Cayman Islands – Cuba – Haiti & the Dominican Republic (on the Island of Hispaniola) and Puerto Rico.
This is the MAIN RUNWAY for Hurricanes in the Caribbean… it is also the highest concentration of Islands with the most “difficulties” in the Caribbean… be that Political, Economic or Social (Health & Safety) Issues.
So stuff to bear in mind…
Of this grouping I’d only give the Caymans a two thumbs up.
Cuba is ok… but only because it is a Safe country… and has other issues, that impact me less as a tourist.
The rest of them… Haiti, the DR, or Jamaica… no thanks. Too many issues.
All Inclusives thrive in countries that have issues… as a way to drawing tourists. So what looks like “a bargain” truly comes at a price
Stuff to think about.
And prices are yes going to be even lower during Hurricane Season
IF you do decide to go June thru November, I would suggest that you make inquiries about such things as Hurricane Insurance – Cancellation Clauses / Insurance… and make sure no matter when or where you travel that you also invest in Travel Insurance & Health Insurance… the latter especially important if you are headed off to a 2nd or 3rd world country !!
(Could be the difference between being treated IN COUNTRY… or being flown home for top-drawer modern medical assistance)

Personally, if you are looking to Honeymoon in July (your WBee Profile lists a Wedding Date of July 19th) I’d be looking for somewhere in either the USA or Canada that offers decent weather at that time (vs HUMID beyond belief… like you’ll find in the Caribbean)
OR if you really have your heart struck on a Caribbean Tropical Honeymoon…
Take a Mini Moon July… and your full Honeymoon in the Wintertimes… and it means you’ll have a few more months to save up and really make it AWESOME !!
Hope this helps,
