Attractive offers make prices a fraction of those offered during the high season. The last of the turtles hatch between the end of June and the beginning of July. Rainfall is at its highest, but usually consists of relatively short showers. Although there are heavy tropical showers, there are still plenty of sunshine hours and the island landscape becomes more lush with rich green vegetation and beautiful tropical flowers. The official hurricane season falls between July and November, and although the risk of hurricanes is very small, you might encounter tropical storms.
