September, Our Favorite Month

by Sarah Tuff

One region where the weather doesn't always cooperate in September is the Caribbean, which is in the midst of hurricane season—bad news if you're hankering for a little jerk chicken or pink sand beaches. Unless, of course, you're wise enough to visit tiny Curaçao, which sits off the northern coast of Venezuela and outside the so-called "hurricane belt." In 2005 the Dow Jones Index called Curaçao the least likely Caribbean island to incur nature's wrath. This good fortune leaves islanders—and a few in-the-know visitors—to dive in calm waters and relish even calmer days. Fall is also when the coral spawn releases billions of fertilized eggs into the sea in a visual extravaganza that's legendary in diving circles. Hotels are offering deep discounts this month—a package at the Habitat Curaçao Resort includes seven nights' lodging, eight boat dives, and unlimited shore diving. Just watch your friends' faces when you tell them you're headed to the islands.
