2. Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is known for its lush rainforests, its luxury resorts, and its pristine beaches. It’s also well-known that this Caribbean nation is one of the least likely to be damaged by a hurricane. The Mona Passage, which connects the Caribbean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, creates a pressure system that pushes hurricanes out to the sea rather than into the mainland of the DR. This means, in the past 80 years, the nation has only been hit by 11 hurricanes, and the 2017 storms barely caused any damage to this island of Hispaniola.
