(our background) Am planning a trip to GCM (probably staying in the Mariott or Ritz Carlton). Was at 7 mile beach about 15 years ago on a cruise ship stop, thought it was beautiful. Have spent the last 9 Caribbean trips to Turks & Caicos.
All of our Caribbean trips have been during July or August. The weather in the summer when we have gone has been sunny & hot, it may rain for 10 minutes once or twice during the trip.
I am considering a 4 or 5 night trip to Turks the Spring / Easter break week of April 15 (when all the East Coast schools by us are off). Since I have never been to the Caribbean that month I just wanted to check in to ask;
What is the weather typically like in Grand Cayman in mid-April? (I was not sure when their rainy season was)
Are there problems with jellyfish or seaweed/sargassum usually in April?
How crowded are the hotels/ beaches? Is it insanely crowded that week since many schools are off?
When we go to Turks in the summer, our flights are usually 100% full, so we are used to that, but looking at the TA pictures of the beaches on 7mile beach vs, Turks Grace bay beach, the beaches look a lot more crowded in GC. The beach chairs look super close together on GC, whereas at Turks they are more spread out.
Thanks so much for any feedback, Marina
