aruba in the fall

Couldn't manage a summer vacation this year and just wondered what it would be like to go to Aruba(or another Caribbean Island) in October. Any comments, suggestions??

Aruba weather is pretty much the same all year with the exception of a few degrees. We always go in September and love it. I am sure October would be the same. But the big plus is no hurricans (sp) in Aruba as other Islands.

As the previous poster mentioned, Aruba is not in the hurricane belt and therefore has a very low risk of weather issues during the fall...this is not true for most Caribbean locations...that is why we can gone so much. 90 and breezy almost all the time....

Keep in mind, it is also a very dry island with plenty to do...shopping, casinos, great food (not cheap)...but not things like river walks or zip lines...so that may matter to you...if you are looking for great beaches and awesome sunny days...Aruba is for you...

Read the forum and ask some questions...you will love it!

One travel consideration when heading to the Caribbean during October is the possibility of flight delays due to hurricanes. Aruba is south of the hurricane belt as mentioned above. However, if you're passing through Miami you may be delayed or if a hurricane is in your flight path it could cause a disruption. Just something to consider. Enjoy your visit.

Our family vacations in Aruba JUST at the start of hurricane season. While we've never had any issues on the island, sometimes going home through Charlotte can be a nightmare due to weather delays. SanNic offers some chewy food for thought.
