Yes, Jamaica is great all year round but it is especially inviting in the summer. Most people travel during the winter to escape the cold, but if you wish to have a summer vacation, you won’t be disappointed. Jamaica is big on summer activities and there is just so much to do, you’ll never be bored.

Plus, if you are visiting with the hopes of experiencing Jamaica’s party scenes, this is the best time as by then we are well into summer and all the best beach, river and pool parties will be in full swing.

Not to mention, that the greatest Reggae show on Earth, Reggae Sumfest, held annually in Montego Bay, is one of the island's best festivals that takes place in July.

Even if it does rain, it would be a refreshing change from the heat and quite welcomed by most. During this time, plan and book your resorts way beforehand. Considering how busy the resorts get during the school breaks, you might even want to consider renting a private villa. The majority of villas include a private pool and in-villa staff to take care of your every need.

The low season begins in July when temperatures in Jamaica range from 84 to 91 °F, which is as warm as it gets. With an astounding 11 hours of sunshine per day in July, the sun is indeed shining brightly. In Jamaica, July is the warmest month of the year, making it a popular time for tourists as families arrive for summer vacations. Even in the evenings, when the temperature merely drops to the 70s, there is little relief from the heat.

Is July a good month to go to Jamaica?

Although hurricane season has only just begun, there is statistically little chance of a direct hit. It’s the off-season in July. Compared to the high season, there are fewer tourists in Jamaica then, but it's still a reasonably busy month. While generally lower than in December through April, lodging costs are nevertheless higher than in September.

Entertainment In July

The highly anticipated Reggae Sumfest is held towards the end of July every year. The main show is held over three days in Catherine Hall, Montego Bay. In addition to these days, there are smaller parties and roadshows held during the Reggae Sumfest week and at various locations in Montego Bay.

Boston Jerk Fest is also held in July in Portland, the home of jerk. You will get to try jerked everything; from the classic chicken and pork to seafood and vegetables.

Dream Weekend in Negril is 4 days of nonstop parties, both day and night. It usually begins on the last days of July heading into Emancipation Day, August 1st.

Lobster Season in Jamaica

The official lobster season is closed every year from April 1 to June 30. The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries' Fisheries Division has the authority to change the season's end date, but no such modification has been announced. This means you can enjoy all the fresh lobster dishes your appetite desires.

Fruits and Foods in Season in July

  1. Mango - Mango season is well known in Jamaica. One of the benefits of summer is it. Mango season typically lasts from May to July. There are many different varieties of mangoes, including Millie, Julie, Bombay, East Indian, Number 11, Stringy, and fine-skinned varieties. Everybody has a preference.

  2. Soursop - The Jamaicans use this to produce a really cool beverage. Many people think it lowers blood pressure and soothes nerves. It contains a lot of vitamin C. Some people think it can fight cancer, but there is no evidence.

  3. Otaheite Apple - This nearly pear-shaped fruit has a snow-white interior and a dark red exterior. In the core is a tough seed. These apples produce fruit in June and July in addition to February and April.

  4. Sweet Sop- As the fruit ripens, it becomes more readily shattered, exposing the white flesh that covers the black seeds. You can rely on this fruit to be sweet. Although it resembles custard, it is not as gritty as custard apples. Fruits ripen between April and July.

  5. Breadfruit- In Mutiny on the Bounty, this fruit (or vegetable) was the cause of all the disturbance with Captain Bligh. The Jamaican diet is largely based on this incredibly adaptable fruit.

    Many people think that this high-protein plant has the power to eradicate hunger worldwide. The months of June through August are the most prolific. Similar to how rice or potatoes are consumed, they can be roasted, boiled or fried.

    Even drinks can be made with breadfruit. Ackee and saltfish are delicious with roasted or fried breadfruit for breakfast, and jerk anything goes well for lunch.

The Jamaican weather is good all year round, but it’s almost perfect in July. See you then!
