Tropical Jamaica is sunny, warm, and beautiful all year round. The best time to visit Jamaica for the optimal weather and hiking conditions is from January through April when it rains the least. Jamaica Carnival is one of the major festivities in the country that takes place in April. May, June, and July are also good months to be on the island. Even though it's a rainy season, quick downpours are quickly replaced by sunshine. Spring and early summer is the harvest time for mango, star apple, ackee, and coffee. July is also time for a well-known Reggae Sumfest. Hurricanes usually hit Jamaica's lands in August and September, even though the hurricane season runs officially from June to November. It's a bit risky, but it's the best season to catch good deals.
