                 Jamaica Tourist Seasons

Peak Season

We all want to escape the cold and run off to warmth, soaking in the sun. Jamaica is the ideal place to do that! This is why mid-December to April is the busiest time to visit.

You’ll find the island is the center of activity and packed with tourists making the most of a vacation filled with lots of sun and warmth. But with that comes higher costs as it is a competitive time.

If you’ve saved a little extra and don’t mind crowds, it is the most optimal time for a beach vacation.

Low Season

The low season runs from July to October. Most people don’t choose this time as it’s summertime at home.

If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of your busy life, a quick summer getaway to a gorgeous beach resort may be what you need.

If you’re on a budget or looking to save a little, low season travel will be the best time to go to Jamaica.

You’ll save on tickets to Jamaica, accommodations, and activities. And if you’re not a fan of crowds, and prefer space, peace, and quiet, then the low season is ideal.

Shoulder Season

Shoulder season balances peak and low season and occurs between mid-April to July and November to mid-December. One of the significant aspects of shoulder season is that the weather is excellent, but the rates are much lower than during peak season. Plus, it won’t be as crowded as during peak season.



               Jamaica Weather

Winter doesn’t exist in the Caribbean. You cannot go wrong with near-perfect weather and temperatures ranging from the mid-70s to the high 80s year-round. How amazing is that? But there are still two seasons to consider: Wet and Dry.

Wet season

The wet season typically runs between July and October. July is the warmest month, while October is the rainiest month in Jamaica. But not to worry! Tropical rainfall is lovely and highly refreshing, especially in warm temperatures.

And it doesn’t stick around for long, leaving plenty of hours of sunshine and fun. Plus, you’ll have the luxury of enjoying your wonderful vacation with fewer people.

Dry season

The rest of the year is the dry season, with February and March being the driest months of the year. But keep in mind, these months fall right in the middle of peak season, so again, if cost and crowds are a factor, it may not be ideal.





Now that you have a rough idea of when to visit, significant events will help narrow your timeframe even further.

Jamaica is the hub of some of the best festivals and events. Remember to be on the lookout as new festivals are constantly popping up, but the ones listed below are great to consider if you have flexible dates.
