can you pls advise me:
1- which of the main resorts in Jamaica (Negril, Montego Bay etc)will have less risk of dengue, zika etc or jelly fish by Christmas?
2- which of the resorts will be a better base for one trips to the rest of the country by public buses or organised day trips?
3- are taxis in Jamaica, even at night, safe even for a lone traveller?
Thanks for your informed advise
We (4 px, 2 adults, 2 children) are going to Jamaiae in June for a 3-weeks-trip throughout the Island.
Accomodation is booked already, but we haven't cared about Transportation yet.
Can anyone recommand a reliable driver or tour company for a round trip? It's 8 destinations all over the island. Tried to manage it by public transport, but that's pretty challenging from abroad:)
Taking the family (2 adult one 6 yo and a toddler) to jamaica in june. Flying into MoBay on the 17th staying for 9-14 days. Were not really resort people. I have heard that treasure beach is super chill same with port antonio. Anyone have any feedback or recommendations of areas to stay? I don't mind doing a few days at an AI to give us a break but I would love to avoid them. I don't really like american tourists. When I leave america I don't want to be surrounded by a bunch of americans. We…
I am coming down to Jamaica from January 25-29, 2019 to see a concert at an all inclusive resort up near ocho rios. I want to come down a couple of days early to get the local flavor, relax and party a little bit. I would like to stay in a hostel or guest house and away from the cruise ships and resorts. I looked around and Treasure Beach, Negril, and Port Antonio seemed to be the best options. I will be flying into Montego bay. Any help is appreciated!
I know 3 nights is too short, but that's the best we can do for childcare. Looking to hit the beach fast. Have some Ital and beers and relax! We did this same trip to Negril in 2015 and stayed at Travellers. loved the beach, but the hassles - ug! We are experienced travellers - I was turned off by the "hey - we're friends" routine. Looking for a more friendly, quiet, genuine Jamaica. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!
I'm heading to Jamaica for a 2 week reggae tour in July. The tour hits up Sumfest in Montego Bay, treasure beach, kingston then port antonio before finishing up back in Kingston. I want to spend another week in Jamaica after the tour finishes to do some more nature related activities including hiking blue mountain peak and then some scuba diving.
After some recommendations for an itinerary, i'm thinking either a back to PA (is it worth going back to after only spending 1 night there?) for…
I am planning a group private villa trip to Montego Bay (11 people) and would appreciate any comments anyone who has done this has about safety in this area? Also need info about the cost of groceries since the chef is provided but we have to buy our own groceries....How much should I factor for groceries, per person per day? Should I let the chef shop for us or should I go? etc....
Id like to go (with some of my friends) to Jamaica and do +/- 10 days trip around the island. We are backpackers so we are not looking for resorts. We are going to use only local communication (no renting a car) and we would like to stay at local people houses (not hotels) to get to know better the culture of Jamaica. Btw, is it possible to get to e.g.Blue Mountains using local buses? Beaches – only non paid ones. Why? It is not like we dont want to spend money there… We just dont want to…
I have 10 days in Jamaica and my booked flight lands in Kingston at 12:30pm. Is it worth an extra $50 to go ahead and work my way to treasure beach on the same day or should I catch the knutsford at 5:30am the next morning. Leaning towards not staying in Kingston overnight. Thoughts? Advice?
