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.
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.
