@LizzyR:  I posted something about this recently. Everywhere we were planning to go is in their rainy season (Belize, Costa Rica…) a couple people suggested St Lucia, so we’re looking into that.

@LizzyR We will be going in early October too!  Thanks for sharing the locations.  I think we are leaning towards Mexico (Pacific side).

@LizzyR:  What about Aruba or one of the other ABC Islands? Those are far enough south that they are below the hurricane belt.

We are going to Jamaica. I loved the off season pricing 🙂

@LizzyR:  I googled and found this:

One of the reasons that people go to Jamaica in the first place is to take advantage of the year-round warm Caribbean climate. Temperatures fluctuate little over the course of the year. The hottest months are July and August, with an average high of 90 (32) degrees and lows in the lower 70s (23 C). This differs little, however, from the coldest months of January through March, when highs hover around 86 (30 C) degrees, and lows are in the upper 60s (20 C). The rainy season is May through October, with September and October being the wettest months, receiving about four inches of rain each. Jamaicans will tell you that rains are brief and usually followed by sunshine, and that overcast days are rare. 

Jamaica is technically in the Caribbean hurricane belt, but sees very few actual hurricanes. In the last fifty years, the island has averaged about one hurricane per decade.

 

Good enough for me! 🙂

Were also taking our honeymoon in October and were nervous about weather. 

Our top picks were: Fiji, bora bora and South America.
