Need help again!! Where to go??

Jump to last reply

We are planning to take a trip in November or early December. I REALLY want to go to Turks and Caicos but unsure now since Irene just blasted through. My one concern with November is being the tail end of hurricane season and the damage that the island already experienced. Will resorts and hotels be up and fully functional in a few months? This island has attracted me since it has beautiful beaches.

We want to have a close nonstop flight from either Philly or Newark which is another reason why TCI is so attractive to us. We plan on going 6 days/5 nights which is why the short nonstop flight is preferred. I guess other options being close are Bahamas (also got hit by Irene), Jamaica (have been there and not at the top of my list), Cayman, or Aruba. I know Aruba is a longer flight but it tends to be out of the hurricane threat area.

So any insight on the best bet to go that time of year? I know mother nature will do her thing and there is no guarantee what the weather holds for the rest of the season. I really want a beautiful turquiose beach and TCI is really calling me. I know it won't be super warm that time of year but it sure will be warmer than the northeast. Any advice from travelers that have gone to any of those islands that time of year?
