Hurricane Zone: Most insurance companies use the following definition:
Where? From (12º 40' N) 10º 50' N to 23º 30' N and from 55º W to 85º W.
When? From July 1 to November 30 inclusive.

After hurricanes Ivan (2004) and Emily (2005) devastated Grenada, insurance companies moved the southern limit of the hurricane zone to 10º 50' N which excludes Grenada, Tobago, Margarita and the ABC islands from coverage. That leaves the coast of Venezuela and the island of Trinidad as your safe havens to the south. Latitude 23º 30' North is, of course, the Tropic of Cancer which runs about 20 minutes of a degree north of Havana, Cuba and right through the southern part of Great Exuma in the Bahamas. Longitude 55º West is out in the Atlantic well east of Barbados, about 10 minutes of a degree east of Paramaribo, Suriname. Longitude 85º West is just west of Cuba and runs right through the middle of Nicaragua.

This "box" is where you don't want to be during the Hurricane Season, from July 1 to November 30.
