Whilst the resort rarely receives the full brunt of hurricanes, there is still a risk and visitors should keep this in mind when booking their holiday.

Average temperatures expected in June are 29°C. The warmest parts of the day receive average high temperatures of 31°C, and the cooler evenings dip to an average of 26°C. With these higher temperatures it is very important to maintain your water intake, as you will very easily become dehydrated. If your resort room has air-conditioning, it will also help make the evenings a little more bearable.
You may also be able to find some relief from the heat by taking a dip in the sea, an average sea temperature of 28°C is expected at this time of year. June is one of the windiest days of the year, expecting a 53% chance of windy days throughout the month. An excellent opportunity if you enjoy sail based water sports such as yachting or windsurfing, not so great if you plan on spending the day snorkelling - the wind can create choppy water that mixes up sand and sediment, reducing visibility in the water.
The wind has the added benefit of helping you feel a little cooler, by bringing in the cooler ocean air during the day.
