It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Jamaica

Peak Season: mid-December to mid-April

Crowds and high prices are the only drawbacks to visiting during the winter, when hordes of travelers (including spring breakers) come to escape colder climes. The upside is that the sun always shines. Hurricane season is supposed to end on November 30, though December storms have been known to occur. Book at least 2-3 months in advance.

Off Season: June to August

Travelers on a shoestring budget appreciate the discounted hotel rates. Colorful local festivals also happen during this time. On the downside, service in major hotels can be reduced, some hotels use this time for renovations, and rainy weather is more frequent.

Sweet Spot: mid-April to May; September to mid-December

Travelers benefit from reduced rates on air and hotel packages (except during the Easter holidays), less crowded beaches, and cheaper green fees. Weather can be rainy, with hurricane season starting in June and continuing through the end of November.
