Jamaica Weather in October

destination intro image

What’s the weather like in Jamaica in October?

Sitting to the south of Cuba and west of Haiti, Jamaica’s in the West Indies and is the third largest Caribbean island. The tropical weather means things are nice and warm all year round. You’ll get lots of sun if you’re going in October although it’s one of the year’s wettest months. Short and sharp downpours make up a good amount of the rain though so you’ll still have plenty of time to relax on the beach. You’ll be kept cool on the coast by welcome breezes.


The average high in Montego Bay is 31ºC in October, which only drops to 23ºC at night. The sea temperature’s 29ºC, which is perfect for swimming, while humidity’s high. There’s 261mm of rain over 16 days, although you can still expect 12 hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so don’t forget your sun cream. Sunset’s at 6pm at the start of the month.
