It’s means down south within the Caribbean, near South America, which suggests it’s exterior of the hurricane belt and has near-perfect climate yr spherical. I consider it’s a dessert local weather (we noticed numerous cacti) and so there isn’t a lot rain both.

I’ll say that it was VERY HOT! 85 levels and direct solar was a little bit of a shock to our winter our bodies. We placed on tons of sunscreen and wore rashguards. I felt dangerous “complaining” concerning the warmth, but it surely was fierce! 

The resort was a straightforward 15-minute van trip from the airport, and the Hyatt is situated proper in the course of the developed space so you possibly can simply stroll off property to go to eating places and outlets. If we hadn’t had youngsters who required automobile seats, we would have explored the island a bit extra by automobile, so we caught to strolling distance issues solely. Along with the resort being walk-able on the town-side, there was an superior beach-front path that we might use to go on seashore walks the place there have been lots extra eating places and bars to get pleasure from. So the situation of our resort couldn’t have been higher.
