Negril’s climate is tropical, like much of Jamaica. The town’s weather is usually hot, with a yearly average of 81 degrees Fahrenheit, with a constant, gentle breeze blowing and rare light showers. It can become exceedingly moist sometimes, with humidity reaching up to 80% on some days.
Plan your trip to Negril in summer is the busiest time of year with tourists from all over the world lining up to spend their time in Negril’s stunning beaches. The 90 degrees Fahrenheit heat doesn’t deter visitors from venturing outdoors, in fact it feels quite perfect when coupled with a few cold drinks.
Autumn is most prone to rainfall and cloudy weather. This season usually sees the least amount of tourists, though this does make it an appealing time to visit for those who are willing to sacrifice 24/7 warm weather for peace and solitude. September is the least rainy and your best bet to go if you plan on traveling in the autumn.
The winter months are relatively the coolest (though there never really is a ‘cold’ spell in Negril) and these months tends to be less popular, though Christmas in Negril is reportedly quite a grandly celebrated festival.
Spring is cool in the mornings, warm in the afternoon and is filled with sunny days up till May, when the rain threatens to spill down from the skies.
The worst time to go to Negril is from May till October as this is hurricane season.
