Hi we were there in early December 2010 and unfortunately we only got about 2 afternoons of sun out of a 6 day trip. It was mainly cloudy-one bad day of rain but really overcast the rest of the time. It was warmer there though compared to at home in Chicago. Good luck.

We always go in early Dec. The weather is mixed, wind, sun cloud and yes some rain but overall in our opinion good unless you want it hot hot. (we prefer high 70's low 80's)

It is unfortunate that some of the folks who visited in December experience bad weather...however the dry period in Jamaica starts in November/December so over-all it should be a good period... but as you know anything can happen.

We stayed last December from the 5th to the 12th, 2012. We had awesome weather except for 2 hours of rain upon arrival. Other than that, maybe a 10 minute sprinkle on day 2, other than that, it was sunny and hot every day without rain. We are going back this December.

We visited during XMAS 2012. Everyday was between 83-86. A couple days it was a little breezy due to storms off the coast. Never hit land. Sounds perfect to me for December.

Much of it has to do with jet streams coming down from Canada. If Florida gets a cold front and rain, so will Jamaica.

We have stayed in the area in early December for the past 2 years.

The weather was perfect! Warm and sunny with passing clouds and only 1 outdoor dinner had to be moved under cover due to rain.

Nothing is certain when it comes to weather- we were in Aruba ( which supposedly never has hurricanes) for Hurricane Felix in early September 2007 and right before Tomas' in late October 2010.

We enjoy all our vacations no matter what the weather, but do prefer sunny and warm, of course .
