 What to Consider When Choosing an All-Inclusive Resort

As part of this week's series on choosing an all-inclusive resort:

 Consideration #2 when choosing an all-inclusive resort: Time of Year – When are you traveling? 

Weather - The rainy seasons change slightly depending on the islands. In general, hurricane season runs June through November with the heaviest rains in August and September. Other times it can be blazing  hot. If you are sensitive to heat and sun, it's important to check that the resort has shade options 

Religious holiday or festivals - Check to make sure all your “must do” activities are available. For instance, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic severely limit water sports around Easter. 

Lobster - If you love Caribbean lobster, be sure to check when it's in season or you'll be disappointed when it's not on the menu. Lobster season is closed April 1st - June 30th in Jamaica each year.

I want to hear from you - How big of a factor is weather when you decide when to travel? Are you willing to tolerate some rain to better accommodate your schedule?
