When to Visit the Cayman Islands

The peak (read: most expensive) time to visit the Cayman Islands is mid-December through mid-April. This is the busiest time of year, a season when Americans and Canadians are looking for a warm weather refuge, if only for a few days, and when hotels and condominiums can charge their highest rates.

You'll find equally pleasant weather conditions in the "shoulder" seasons - fall and spring. Prices are somewhat lower during these months and reservations are easier to obtain. In the fall months, the busiest time is late October when the annual Pirates Week blowout fills hotels with merrymakers.


Grand Cayman is also a spring break destination for many college students so, unless you enjoy a serious party atmosphere, avoid late March and early April. While the crowding is not severe as that found in Nassau or Cancun, you will find enough spring breakers to keep Seven Mile Beach bustling. Spring breakers don't hit Little Cayman and Cayman Brac so these islands maintain their peaceful atmosphere year around.

Summer months are the cheapest look for rooms at 40-50off their peak rates. Late summer can bring the threat of hurricanes but it's a minor threat. Good forecasting systems keep travelers aware of any impending storms days in advance.

Late summer (August and September) traditionally spells a slow season throughout the Caribbean due to increased storm threat, warm weather throughout the US, and back to school preparations. The Cayman Islands, however, is offering plenty of summer temptation with deep discounts on airfare, hotels, attractions, restaurants, watersports, and auto rentals.

For the past several summers, the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism has operated extensive discount programs during the summer extending through the end of October. Some of these special programs are available only through travel agents so check with your travel professional if you are considering a trip during those months.
