Jamaica (Caribbean Islands): Climate & Weather

Jamaica has a tropical maritime climate, with temperatures with little variation, mostly between 27 and 30 ° C on the coasts and around 20 ° C in the mountains. A rainy period occurs between May and December, with relatively moderate and rather sporadic rainfall. Between June and November, cyclones can occur. You can travel to Jamaica at any time, but the tourist season is in full swing from December to April, resulting in higher prices and a more compact crowd on the beaches. The period from May to October will allow you to be more quiet and save money but the heat and humidity will be a little more annoying.
