Best time to visit George Town:

December to April (Dry Season/High Season): This is considered the peak tourist season and the best time to visit the Cayman Islands. The weather is dry, sunny, and comfortable, with temperatures ranging from the mid-70s to the mid-80s Fahrenheit (24-30°C). This period is ideal for enjoying the pristine beaches, snorkeling, scuba diving, and water sports. However, prices for accommodations and activities are typically higher, and the islands can be more crowded.

May to November (Rainy Season/Low Season): This period includes the rainy season, but the term "rainy season" in the Cayman Islands still means occasional short, heavy showers, not constant rainfall. Temperatures are slightly warmer and more humid. The benefits of visiting during this time include lower prices on accommodations and fewer tourists. It's a great option for budget-conscious travelers and those looking for a quieter experience.

June to November (Hurricane Season): The Cayman Islands are in a hurricane-prone region, and the peak of the hurricane season is from August to October. While hurricanes are relatively rare in the Cayman Islands, it's still important to monitor weather updates during this period.
