Why is the gulf of Mexico prone to hurricanes?

It is a gulf; as such it has warmer waters than the surrounding Atlantic Ocean.

Hurricanes are formed due to a pretty complex process, but for simplicity, warm waters evaporate quickly; then as they ascend begin to cool down. The difference of temperatures between the warmer waters below and the cooler clouds above generates a "low pressure zone", which leads to a storm and eventually, a hurricane.
