Jamaica's popularity as a year-round vacation destination is partially because of its consistent and pleasant weather.

Beach temperatures average nearly 28°C (82°F) year-round. Certainly as one moves inland into the mountainous regions the temperatures wane a bit, but not dramatically.

Rainfall varies across the island and at times can be heavy. However, much like southern Florida in the U.S. the rain is often brief and followed by warm and sunny beach weather.

Like most of the Caribbean islands, Jamaica is subject to potential hurricane damage from July through mid-November, but don't let that stop you from traveling to this wonderful island as hurricane warnings are often posted a week in advance.
