Winter is high season in the Cayman Islands, with flocks of sunseekers descending on the archipelago.

If you want to beat the winter rush, consider visiting in spring, when the Cayman Islands enjoy clear skies, calm water and sultry temperatures. Green season spans from May to November.

This is thanks to the archipelago's westerly location, which means the Cayman Islands escape most of the wild weather ushered in by hurricane season.
