May is considered to be one of the wetter months - but it's not like a cold rain - it starts and stops and the sun comes out....and Hurricane Season starts June 1st
But nothing, even the weather is predictable anymore

"Annual rainfall average 78 inches, but there are considerable variations nationwide, with the eastern coast receiving considerably more rain than elsewhere on the island. Parts of the John Crow and Blue Mountains receive an average of 300 inches a year. By contrast, the south coast sees little rain and in places is semibarren.

Soo basically expect some rain, but our honeymoon will not be a "washout"!

There are no guarantees, but you should be fine. We have made many trips to Couples at this time of year and rain was never a problem. If it is going to rain, it will usually do so for an hour or so in the early afternoon. It rarely rains all day and on many days there is no rain at all.

It should not be a wash out. We were at CSA in June and we got rain just about every day, but it only lasted an hour at most in the late afternoon. Great time for a nap or for hanging out at a beach bar. One of my favorite times was sitting under the overhang at the Sunset Bar with the rain gushing all around us laughing it up with new friends. That was an intense and very short lived downpour. It was exciting.
