I just finished a 3 month trip to Jamaica and was fortunate enough to see the entire island. I spent the majority of my time in rural Jam along the south coast and if you are looking for the authentic Jamaica, this is where you will find it. I want to share the name of an amazing driver who will take you all over the island in a private car, that is well maintained and safe. the driver knows his country and is willing to go anywhere that won't put you at risk, but will definitely allow you to…
Everything I've read seems to suggest there is only a one day (usually sunrise) hike for the Blue Mountain peak. My question is, is it possible to organize an independent multiday trek? I have a tent and would like to get lost for a couple days. Is this even possible?
Do any of you know about the boats going from Cuba to Jamaica?
My girl friend and I are going to Cuba and Jamaica this fall and can't find any information about the boats.
Name of port in Cuba and in Jamaica.
Is it safe?
Thank you so much!
I will be traveling to Jamaica at the end of July for about 10 tens. I need help trying to figure out which towns to visit. MoBay is a must since I am attending a wedding there. Next is Negril and TB.
This is where things get tough. I really want to hike the blue mountain peak but I am afraid that I don't have enough time (4 days left) to visit the blue mountains, port antonio and oho rios. I need to cross one of these towns off my list :(
Would really appreciate any advice or…
I'll be in Jamaica for several weeks in July, including the dates of Sumfest in Montego Bay, and would love to check out the music. My sons, who are 11 and 13, will be with me. Are there any events that are okay for kids this age, maybe the opening beach party?
We also plan to spend a few weeks in Port Antonio. If anyone has any budget recommendations ($40-$50/night) of where to stay, please let me know.
My boyfriend and I will be traveling around Jamaica soon for about 7-10 days. Although some beach time is inevitable, we would like some suggestions for places/ways to experience the cultural or "real" Jamaica.
Also, what are some good, safe places to listen to music?
Are there any special events happening next week?
Are there any areas/towns with local community/charm?
Do you have any suggestions for nice, special, relatively inexpensive places to stay around the island that are a bit…
as a german we usually allowed to stay in Jamaica for 90 days without a visa.
Does anybody know what happened if I stay more than the 90 days, maybe 100 or even more?
Do I have to pay a fee or what happens?
Thanks, cheers Angi
Hello, I need your advise please: I'm going to Jamaica next August with my family, and I'm now looking at the hotels. I see there are rooms with fan and rooms with air con, and I'd like to know if, in August, air con is strongly suggested or may be an optional. Are there many mosquitoes? Thanks!!
I'm looking for some spots in Negril that play Rocksteady, Roots & Culture, Lovers Rock etc. DJ is just fine. I'm sure there are plenty of places that have dancehall. But I'd rather get away from the boisterous dancehall vibe a couple of nights while in Negril.
Thanks again for all your input and advise. It's greatly appreciated. One love.
