What would be your perfect vacation in beautiful Sunny Jamaica?
Hi anyone know where the bus leaves from , I am in negril staying at grand lido, and want to go to treasure beach on Sunday, and what time.
Are anyone else that can answer these question.
I am headed back to TB in Jan. and for the first time I want to be BRAVE and rent a motor scooter to "scoot around" for a day, and also go snorkeling one day. My wife thinks I am CRAZY for wanting to do these things because I have never driven a motor scooter, and I am not a strong swimmer and only snorkeled once (Red Sea).
My questions :
Where is the place called "back of sea" that is suppose to be a beautiful spot ?
Have you ever snorkeled at the spot headed to Alligator Pond ?
What are some good routes to scoot around and visit ?
ONE LOVE !!
I am going to jamaica for 3 weeks and want do take a padi course there. But i cant find any general, overall normal price for padi courses when i research.
Does anyone know what the average price for PADI courses are in jamaica? I am aware that prices vary with time and place, so i would appreciate any rough estimate :)
Hi, any tip for a cheap transportation company who will take us from Kingston International Airport to Runaway Bay? 2pax only. Thanks in advance!!! Rgs Dagmar
I live in cold Minnesota USA and have been thinking of a trip to the Caribbean for a while. Finally, after the first snow dusting of the season and the chills floated in, I went ahead an purchased tickets to Jamaica. I am flying into Montego bay in 2 weeks! I will be there for 4 nights and still need to plan where I will stay, go, and whether to rent a car or not.
I got in touch with a fellow musician over there who advises renting a car, so I'm leaning towards doing that. I've heard from reading posts here that Island and Eastern are good companies to go with. Right now I am thinking of flying into Montego Bay and renting a car there (are rental pickups available at the airport??), making that my base and driving out to visit Ocho Rios, Negril, and Kingston for one day each. Any thoughts on how I can maximize my short stay will be most appreciated.
I'd love to find a nice bar o... more »
Does anybody know if the Seascape Hostel By the Sea in Priory/ St. Ann's Bay is in business, and if so, how to contact them to reserve a bed? All the links I've found to reserve a bed at this place came up "no space available" no matter what dates I chose, which makes me wonder if the place is still in business. Thanks!
Me and a friend are visiting Jamaica for over 2 weeks in November/December. Our plan is to stay few nights in Falmouth, Port Antonio, Blue Mountains and Treasure Beach. We want to include also a day in Kingston but since we are travelling alone (just the two of us, not knowing the city nor anyone to show us around) we're a bit afraid of wandering in Kingston and thought of an organized tour. I'm thinking I'd prefer a one-day-tour from Port Antonio (with transport) or if we don't find anything like that we could decide to come to Kingston by public transport, spend there one night, do an organized tour there and then head to Blue Mountains.
My question is: can you recommend any company that provides such tours?
I've found Viator tours http://www.viator.com/tours/Montego-Bay/Scenic-Tour-of-Kingston/d432-2325MBKING from Mo Bay and Ocho Rios, but we're not staying in eithe... more »
Arriving in Montego Bay on Dec. 7th & looking for a place to stay. I need somewhere thats safe & cool for a solo female for two nights before my friend arrives (also female). Then we might stay for another night or two before making a move. Budget can be low to mid range, as long as it's clean & nice we don't mind!
I would like to surprise my husband With a trip to Jamaica on his 40th. We would have to travel when our kids have School holiday in juli or august 2014. I don't know anything about cricket, is it Even possible to see a game at game at that time? Any suggestions om when and where to go? We would like to combine the cricket With a familly holiday. We do not like all inclusive and prefere small coastal Villages rather than big cities.
I want to start by saying thank you to many of the posters on here who have offered insights about route taxis, minibuses, and private cars.
I'm doing a semi-whirlwind 6-day trip (goal: see as much as possible, and come back in the future to spend more time at my favorites) and I'd like to do as much of it as possible via route taxis and minibuses, etc. to save money for other splurges along the way.
I've read through a lot of travel forums, and feel like cheaper transport will cover most of my legs quite well. I use public transportation a lot at home, and have tackled it in many other cities and countries. I think I have reasonable expectations, and will set up my journeys with a lot of "F" factor time so I'm not stressed. I really don't have any specific itinerary. Except for hotel reservations and a touristy day in Ocho Rios, I'm "winging it" for all my daily activities.... more »
I am lucky enough to be soon finding myself in Spanish town staying with family for a while. I am hoping to have a couple of days to myself to explore. This is a new area of the world for me so local advice very welcome. I am white British and an experienced traveller in Asia and Africa and know all the usual safety advice. I am used to family warning me of all sorts of danger only to find all locals to be great fun and very welcoming!!
My questions are:
-Is it practical and safe to get to and spend a short time in the Blue Mountains from Spanish Town? I will be alone. Will I be able to spend say two nights there and get to the top or at least to where there is an amazing view and back again? I am happy to walk for long distances as long as it's safe.
-If not, do you have any advice on how I can best spend a couple of days travel from Spanish Town and see somethi... more »
