What’s the weather like in Jamaica in April?
With its tropical climate and location in the Caribbean Sea, Jamaica is warmed by the Gulf Stream and close proximity to the equator. In April the island is hot and occasionally rainy, but any wet weather usually arrives as short, sharp showers followed by blue skies. If you want to relax in a holiday paradise without the sweltering heat of summer, April is a great month to visit Jamaica.
On average in April, Jamaica experiences temperatures of 26°C in the daytime, with highs of 29°C in the hottest part of the day. With such strong sun you’ll need to seek shade between 11am and 3pm, and wear plenty of high factor sun cream. The island does expect between 60 and 130mm of rain in April, depending on where you are staying, but any showers are usually light and short-lived. With ten hours of sunshine and sea temperatures of 27°C, it’s the perfect time of the year to relax on the beach or snorkel in the clear blue waters.
