Please read below their recomendation:
Hurricane season may last until the end of November, but Curacao—which sits just south of the traditional hurricane belt—delivers the best of the Caribbean throughout fall. Yet you wouldn't know it by looking at the prices: Most hotels offer low-season rates until December. Travelers can also find discounts on packages, tours, and diving during fall. Good deals aren't the only reason to go: Warm weather, pristine beaches, and a rich island culture based on more than 50 nationalities make Curacao a stand-out among Caribbean destinations at any time of year.
At many hotels around the island, the window of lower nightly rates stretches from early September to mid-December. For example, at the Trupial Inn Hotel & Casino, a standard double room costs $125 per night until December 15, when the nightly rate increases to $150 per night through mid-April. At Hotel 't Klooster, the rate for a suite jumps from $185 for stays between September 5 and December 16 to $220 per night for stays December 17 through mid-April.
Making an affordable time even more affordable is the Curacao on Sale promotion, offering up to 50 percent off hotel and resort stays, plus discounts on diving and other activities. The offer is valid for bookings made by October 15 for travel through December 15. Other island deals include up to 35 percent off all-inclusive stays at Breezes Curacao booked by September 30 for stays through December 16. And at press time, Continental Vacations had a sale on three-night vacation packages at the Renaissance Curacao Resort & Casino, with airfare from Newark, from $649 per person.
