Weather in the Cayman Islands

When you think about Caribbean weather, you probably think one word: hot. You’re right! Our island weather is gorgeous all year round. June to September are the hottest months with temperatures getting into the high 80s. However, the breeze coming off the ocean keeps you cool. January and February are the coolest months with lows in the 70s, but overall temperatures are still pleasant and perfect for being outdoors. 

Visiting in the Summer

If you’re looking for minimal crowds and hot days, summer is the best time to visit the Cayman Islands. Airfare is usually discounted during this time, and you should have no problem snagging a flight. Because these are some of the hottest months of the year, we recommend planning to spend your days on the beach, at one of our pools, or on a private charter. The downside, however, is that this is the start of the rainy season in the Cayman Islands. We’re more than happy to give you recommendations on things to do if it rains during your vacation!

Visiting in the Fall

Keep up the tan you got in the summer when you visit Grand Cayman in the fall! Airfare prices continue to be low, and the island still isn’t crowded. Fall temperatures are usually in the 80s and cool off a bit at night to make the weather very pleasant. Some of our favorite events of the year come to town during the fall such as Restaurant Month, Cocktail Week, and Pirates Week. You won’t want to miss them! The only downside is that the rainy season continues into the fall, and September and October are the rainiest months on average here. 

Visiting in the Winter

Escape the winter blues when you vacation in paradise. Not only is the weather still warm, but there are also plenty of events to keep you busy. The holidays are one of the most popular times to stay at The Residences Located at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. Watch the Parade of Lights and make your reservation for the holiday festivities at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. Our guests have access to reserve any of the events at the resort!

Visiting in the Spring

Spring is an excellent time to visit the Cayman Islands. Temperatures start rising and the rain is minimal until the start of the wet season. The waters are clear and calm, so it’s an excellent time to go diving and snorkeling. Have some fun in the sun this spring!
