QUESTION ABOUT... What Is The Best Time To Vacation In Jamaica - For Jamaicans?


As you may be aware we are Jamaicans living in Jamaica.

My wife, daughter and I would like to spend a weekend at one of our Hotel sometime during the year.

What time of the year would recommend for us to go and the Hotel with the best accommodation and price?

Thanks for your expert opinion.

ANSWER BY Wellesley Gayle

Hi, I didn't get your name, but I want to say this is a great question, thanks.

I like the fact that you clearly ask about vacation for Jamaicans, because is can actually do make a difference based on who and the time of the year.

If I was to quote one of my ardent Jamaican visitors, they'll probably say that the best time time visit Jamaica is "Anytime"!

And you and I could understand why :-)

But in my opinion, the best time for Jamaicans at home to go out and experience the hotels and attractions is in the summer; that is the June to August time frame.

Outside of a few summer events that might bring in a jolt of visitors (eg. Reggae Sumfest) for a week or so, that is when the hotels are less congested and so the prices are usually cheaper.

I have gotten discounts of up to 50% off some of the best smaller hotels here at that time!

It is usually also the time that the kids are away from school which gives parents that little break.

Many of my other friends from overseas however (North American in particular), will probably tell you that the ideal time to visit Jamaica is in the October to March period.

That is usually the peak of the winter (cold) season and so many of them prefer the warmth of the Jamaican shores at that time.

It is also the time that those who might be concerned about the hurricanes feel most comfortable as the hurricane season would have just passed (or near its end).

Note: The hurricane season runs from June to November each year.

However, the law of demand and supply ensures that the prices also goes up then, which can be out of the reach of the average Jamaicans.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!
