St. John in October?

Jump to last reply

My lovely wife and I are in the beginning stages of planning a 10th anniversary trip to the Caribbean in October, 2013 (our first trip to the Caribbean) and we're strongly leaning on St. John, finding it to be a nice balance between beaches, activities, and seclusion.

Are we crazy for considering the Caribbean in October? I know it's hurricane season, but will most of the restaurants, hotels/villas and things to do in St. John be open during that time? We want to travel during the low season due to budget considerations (and because we're not real fond of large crowds), but should we be considering another time, or will there still be plenty to do (or not do as the case may be) in October?

Thanks! This is a lovely travel community you have on Fodors.
