    season runs june-nov, but their are definitly peak months. you also want to think about being late in hurrcane season or right after it, because it can take a while to recover. the resorts do usually clean up fast as long as it wasn't a huge storm.
    I know. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping nothing will happen.

      Our wedding is on the last offical day of hurricane season, but I have been watching the storms closely. Luckly, Punta Cana doesn't get as much of the hurricanes as other parts of the Domincian. Doesn't mean they don't get the rain or that they won't get hit, but look at last year when there was a hurricane in Dec!

        I am flipping out. My resort took a direct hit from Ike. Reports are saying that it's in ruins. I am due to get married there in 10 weeks! The travel agent tells me that we have to wait and see what Sunwing says when they visit the resort next week. At this point I don't know where or when or if I am getting married. Very stressful! I just want to cry!

            sorry to hear that angel. I'm crossing my fingers for you. What resort where you staying at? I'm getting nervous too, I cant get a hold of my wedding coordinator and my wedding is also in less then 12 weeks.

              Thanks CayoLargo, I'm trying to keep my chin up. It's just hard when you plan for a year for your wedding and you want everything to go well. All the invites are out and you have gifts with the date and location. The last thing I ever thought of was that my resort would be wrecked by a hurricane! I am suppose to be getting married at the Paradisus Rio du Oro in Holguin, Cuba.

              Tripadvisor forums are saying that the place is totalled....I still have not seen any pictures. We have to wait and see....the longer we wait....the harder it will be to place 12 people in another resort for a wedding.

              I just find it very stressful, I wanted everything to go smooth. I am just feeling down right now and can't seem to get myself out of it.

                Wow, I don't blame you for being upset. Let's hope your travel agent can do something for you.

                  My wedding was to be Oct 15 at the Paradisus Rio De Oro, Holguin Cuba. We were to depart Oct 11, exactly 4 weeks from now. The resort has been demolished. I have no idea what i'm going to do. I'm in a serious state of panic and my travel agent is saying things are fine. I've seen the pics, nothing about that part of the country is fine. I have 26 people coming, not easy to reshcedule EVERYTHING. WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!? My fiance wants refunds, there's no way I'm cancelling the wedding. Tears are coming...crap.

                  Oh my god- breakdown.

                    has google earth done an update? often after storms they will put up current images of the area so you can see the damage. I'm searching...

                      ok i was wrong. it doesn't look like google earth does this. they did it after katrina.

                      there is a company geo eye that will take pics for you, but it's $400.
