Suggestions for H season?

Hi there
My wife and 2 kiddies are buying a Privilege 42 in Trinidad, climbing aboard mid April. For the first month or so we will be finding our feet...after that we are keen to have a nice route in the S Caribbean or eastward towards Brazil...if thats feasible...during Hurricane season...Once the H season is over we wish to cruise from Trinidad north to BVI, but: Where can we go from May till November without ending too far west so that we can still cruise through eastern caibbean at the end of the H season? I have no experience sailing in the Caribbean...but I don't want to be holed up in the same spot for the entire H period...I am trying to get the hang of this whole Hurricane season thing...can one get into lake Maracaibo (just looking at a low res atlas at the moment), read a great post on Lake Nicaragua, but thats probably too far west and will make it hard to get back too eastern caribbean after the H season...what about Suriname? We don't mind 3 world options as long as we don't end up in the middle of a revolution or being sold on some slave market.

I am sure lots of cruisers must have this "Hurricane season wanna have fun dilemma" and I would appreciate any tips.

Our plan is too eventually explore the central america and then the pacific.
