What’s the weather like in Jamaica in July?
Lying in the Caribbean Sea, Jamaica has a tropical climate with hot and humid weather all year round, especially on the coast. Being the third largest island in the Caribbean, the weather in Jamaica varies across the island. The capital Kingston experiences hotter but less humid weather than resorts like Montego Bay and Ocho Rios.
In the northern coastal resorts such as Montego Bay, temperatures in the daytime are around 29°C on average. With highs of 33°C, it’s important to wear lots of sun cream and stay well hydrated. At night, the temperature dips slightly to around 26°C, so you’ll be grateful for air conditioning when you arrive back at your hotel after an evening out. For days by the sea, the Caribbean waters reach a beautifully hot 29°C at this time of year. In July, rainfall varies from around 98mm in Ocho Rios to 42mm in Kingston.
