The climate of the Cayman Islands (United Kingdom)
The Cayman Islands are located south of Cuba in the Caribbean Sea. The islands were annexed by the United Kingdom in the 17th century and were part of the Jamaican colony. After Jamaica became an independent country the Cayman Islands became a British overseas territory. The Cayman islands are known as a tax haven. In almost every Hollywood film where money disappears it is transferred to the Cayman Islands. The Cayman Islands consist of three islands: Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. The islands have a total population of about 50,000, most of which live on grand Cayman. The capital George Town is also located on this island. The Cayman Islands really live up to their reputation of being a tax haven: more than 270 banks can be found in the capital alone. More than half of the total population of the Cayman islands live in the capital. The islands are very popular among tourists who travel here to enjoy the beautiful beaches and underwater life. The Cayman Islands have a tropical maritime climate with a distinct rainy and a distinct wet period. The rainy period is from May till October. During this period there is a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes. In the past about 70% of all the buildings on Grand Cayman were destroyed during a storm. The dry period is from November till April. During this period both temperatures and humidity figures are slightly lower. The Cayman Islands get about 130 days with precipitation per year. Rain almost always falls in the form of a short tropical shower.

More climate information
Climate tables are useful but they don’t give an overall picture of the climate and possible weather conditions during a period of time. How high the chances are of hot or cold weather or hurricanes can often not be found in these tables. This is why we offer extra climate information per month. The figures below are for the Cayman Islands. Please, note that local deviations may occur.
