Hi, my name is Scott Bateman. I'm a professional journalist and travel
blogger. I have taken many trips to the Caribbean and know it well. I have some
tips to offer you on the best times to go to Jamaica. Jamaica is one of the most
popular islands in the Caribbean and a common stop on Western Caribbean cruises.
It has 2 million overnight vacationers and 1.5 million cruise visitors every
year. The most popular months to visit Jamaica are July and December. The least
popular months are September and October. The weather makes the difference.
The average high temperature in Jamaica ranges from 82 degrees Fahrenheit in
January to nearly 90 in the summers. The air temperature is warm enough for most
people in the winter. But sea water is often chilly at times. September is the
least popular month to visit Jamaica for good reason. The Caribbean hurricane
season reaches the high point of activity in September. Even though the
island is least popular in September, the month of October has much more rain on average.
The number of days with rain each month is another way of seeing the
best months to visit Jamaica. January through March have only 5 days each.
October is the worst followed by September and November. The Caribbean
hurricane season officially begins June 1st and ends November 30th. June, July and
November have a low risk of hurricanes and tropical storms. September and
October have the highest risk. They are the worst months to visit. Between
temperatures and the risk of rain, the best times to go to Jamaica are March
and April. December through February are good months to get away from cold
northern winters, but they also have cooler sea waters. Thanks for listening
to my tips!. Enjoy your trip to Jamaica!
