what is the weather like in jamaica in december

Contributed by Kadian Clarke

If you are planning a trip to Jamaica in December, it is important that you know what the weather is like. This will certainly help you to make the most of your vacation.

In December, the average temperature is 32 degrees Celcius (89.6F).

In case you don’t already know, the busiest season for tourism in Jamaica is the winter season. This starts in mid-December and continues through to mid-April.

Due to increased demands during this time of the year, accommodation rates may be higher than normal though. However, don’t be disheartened. If you are like most vacationers who want to flee the winter and soak up some sunshine on our beautiful Jamaican shores, this is the right time for you to visit the island.

And in December you will escape the rainy month, which is in May, and also the hurricane season, which starts in June and end in November.

What is also interesting is that even though there is a hike in prices duing the winter season, you can still take advantage of cheap accommodation rates. All you have to do is ensure to book your reservation before the mid-December holiday begins!

But whether you are booking a vacation rental or you are staying at a resort, you will not regret exchanging the winter for the Jamaican sunshine!

Some things to consider when packing to visit Jamaica in December are:

  1. Warm Weather Clothing
    You can throw on just about anything during the day in many resorts, such as sundresses and shorts.

    Light clothing made out of cotton and other cool fibers would be great. You can dress more conservatively if travelling to local areas.

  2. Swim Wear
    Ensure to pack your fabulous one or two piece swim suit for ladies. Bring your sarong or a cover up for a bit more modesty. For men, you can pack your favourite shorts or speedos.

  3. Classy Outfits
    Many restaurants and clubs require modest attire for dinner. An elegant dress and heels or nice flat shoes or sandals are acceptable for ladies.
    Men, bring your button up shirts and your long pants. Closed toe shoes are usually first preference so don’t forget to stuff a pair in your suitcase.

  4. Sun Protection
    To prevent sun burn, bring a high-SPF sun block that's broad spectrum, shielding you from both UVA and UVB rays, a wide brimmed hat and sun glasses are a must have also, for extra protection.

  5. Personal Items
    You may want to pack toothpaste, lotion, tooth brush, medicine and feminine products which are not always easy to get in your preferred brand, size or variety.

NB: Even though the days are mainly sunny, some days may bring light showers so don’t forget that umbrella!

Bring a light weight coat also as the nights can be fairly cool.
