While major storms affect Jamaica and Florida often several times each year, Cayman rarely gets hit by a hurricane. We often feel the effects of storms elsewhere in the Caribbean – but as my Caymanian landlord used to say, ‘We only get the good part of the hurricane – the rain!’ True indeed. Cayman may get 3-4 tropical depressions or tropical storms during hurricane season. They usually bring about 3-4 days of rough weather – wind and rough seas. But they rarely escalate to ‘batten down’ conditions. And if there are no storm conditions brewing, then the water is beautifully calm. A great time to vacation here.
