Mooring at Caribbean

Hi Everybody, / Greetings Everybody,
My husband and I are planning to sail from Florida to the Caribbean on our sailboat in May.
Well be island hoping until July. We plan to fly back to Florida for three months and then resume our sailing trip in the Caribbean. During this three month period we will need to moor our sailboat in the Caribbean.
My question is twofold:
Could you recommend any specific marinas that are located in areas which provide a reasonable degree of safety from hurricanes, have adequate security, and are reasonably priced?
Would it be better to sail back to Florida and moor the boat there for the three month period?

Thank you for any ideas, recommendations, and suggestions.

Re: Mooring at Caribbean

Gee, I'd hate to sail back to Florida for three months and then do the "Thorny Path" back to the islands again. It's hard work!

I kept my boat on Antigua for two summers (Bailey's Boatyard in Falmouth, and Jolly Harbour Marina's Boatyard), and in Grenada one summer at Grenada Marine in St David. My preference would be Jolly Harbour. You can look them up on the Internet to see their current rates and contact info.
