Hotel seasons


The best time to visit the island if you’re looking for sunny days and mild temperatures is during winter. However, this time of year comes with a bit of a cost- higher prices. Even so, this is still when most people visit.

If you’re looking to pay less, consider going against the grain and visiting during the summer and early fall. This time of the year, known as the wet season, is characterized by short rain showers but none the less is a great time to vacation. Generally prices are about 1/3 less then during winter making a few rain showers even more tolerable.


royalton-white-sandsMontego Bay is located on the northern shore of Jamaica, and the resort area stretches over many miles of beaches in both directions from the main city. This is certainly the main tourist hub for Jamaica, and is home to the island’s busiest airport.

With English as the primary language you’ll be meeting many Americans, Canadians, Brits, and even Germans in Montego Bay. There are many large all-inclusive resorts in the Montego Bay area, and a few smaller ones in the town, but not much else. As a result, the town of Montego Bay doesn’t have much to offer. Even the so-called “Hip Strip” that is the focus of tourism is mostly just a handful of overpriced restaurants and identical souvenir shops. If you want to “visit Jamaica” then the 7-Mile Beach area of Negril is a far better choice, and cheaper as well. But if you are looking for an all-inclusive resort, Montego Bay is a fine choice with its busy airport nearby.

This is mostly a middle-priced Caribbean destination, with still many options in the lower end of that range. Cheap and fast flights from North America make it popular with anyone looking for value or on a shorter trip.

Where to stay

There are over 100 resorts and hotels in the greater Montego Bay area, spread over many miles of beaches and even some simple and cheap hotels and hostels in the city of Montego Bay itself. Most tourists will book in one of the many larger beach hotels, many of which are all-inclusive.

There are far fewer low-budget options in Montego Bay compared to nearby Negril, so this is mostly a mid-range area for the Caribbean, with a few really high-end places sprinkled in. The all-inclusive resorts in Montego Bay are excellent value, especially when packaged with a flight.

Monetgo Bay is one of the most sought out island destinations in all of the Caribbean, and for good reason too. With cool winds, mild humidity and near constant sunshine, you’ll find exactly the island paradise you’ve been looking for.

There is relatively little change month to month with temps staying in the 70s, 80s and sometimes into the low 90s. You’ll also find that due to it’s location, the water is always relatively warm with a few exceptions after rainy days.

If traveling during the summer or late fall, keep in mind that Jamaica falls in the hurricane cone several times a season. It’s best to keep an eye on the projected weather forecast just to be on the safe side.
