A popular Jamaican poem starts by summing up Jamaica weather like this:
We have neither Summer nor Winter
Neither Autumn nor Spring
We have instead the days
When the gold sun shines on the lush green canefields-
We’ll put it another way; Even when it’s raining or hot, Jamaica’s weather is gorgeous.
Our average annual temperature is between 80-86°F (27-30°C). Temperature variations between summer and winter is about 10 degrees.
The “rainy season” is characterized by brief afternoon showers followed by sunshine. We see it as a welcome break from the tropical heat!
Generally, the weather in Jamaica is characterized by a cool, caressing sea breeze by day and a gentle breeze from the mountains by night. Bring a sweatshirt for the evenings and you should be fine.
Hurricanes aren’t typically a problem until we get close to September.
And did you know that many Jamaicans refer to May-July as mango season instead of Spring?
Like we said…it’s gorgeous here. But the only way you’ll know for sure is to come visit with us.
