Antigua in September | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

Hi Al,I am travelling to Antigua in September and have heard pretty bad stuff about the weather (rain/hurricanes). This was the only available time I was able to book my trip (September 9-16th).Can anyone give some positive replies about travel during this timeframe? My trip is non-refundable and I am praying for the weather God’s to be on my side.

Thanks in advance

The travel industry describes Antigua as being one of the ABC islands – Antigua, Bonaire, and Curaco and positioned outside what is known as "hurricane alley" when these storms occur, June to November. You may see some rain each day but most likely not the devestation that other islands suffer from strong winds. Worst case may be flight delays as the planes chart routes around rough weather systems. That happened to us one year in Punta Cana. We were delayed 8 hours leaving D.R. because the plane coming from Toronto has to outwait a weather system going through Florida. We enjoyed more hours at our resort; not so lucky for the folks in Toronto waiting to leave but confident that they would be traveling in safe weather, nontheless.

For the ABC islands, I think the A in that grouping refers to Aruba rather than Antigua?

Antigua and Barbuda are a twin-island nation and would be shocked to discover that they are part of the Netherland Antilles. The ‘A’ in ‘ABC’ does indeed stand for Aruba. The group of islands making up the country is in the middle of the Leeward Islands part of the Lesser Antilles, roughly 17 degrees latitude north of the Equator.
