Visiting somewhere new can be a thrilling experience and so we know that you are wondering what to expect when it comes to Jamaica, that’s why we've written this post. These 5 tips from us will ensure that you have a perfect trip and stay during your Jamaican vacation.

  • When to Visit
  • Jamaica has a tropical marine climate that stays fairly consistent throughout the year. Its peak season is from December through April so hotel and airline rates are usually higher at this time. The off-peak season is between May to November. This also the rainy season. If you asked us to pick the perfect period to make your trip, we'd choose July and August. It isn't during the rainy season and also does not fall during peak season either so your costs would be lower.

  • What to Do
  • Relax. Your vacation is a great time to relax and explore. Jamaica is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and there is also deep-sea fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, scuba diving, and snorkeling. You should however relax and explore your hotel first before you get started on doing all the aforementioned.

  • What to Eat
  • Food is a big part of your vacation and when it comes to Jamaica, we'd suggest that you try out the local cuisine. It contains fresh seafood and some tropical fruits and vegetables that are rare. Also, try the famous Jerk spiced foods. Food time is also a great time to bond with the locals. They'll like you better when they see you try out local foods and drinks.

  • Where to Stay
  • When it comes to Jamaica, a resort is your best option and it's what we'd recommend. There are lots of them to choose from.

  • Other General Tips
  • Jamaica is not only known for the beaches, it has great waterfalls too, so be sure to visit. Carry small bills instead of big ones. These will help with your tipping and other small purchases. The US dollar is widely accepted across the island so you do not need to convert your currency. Do not also forget to drink lots of water on your trip. This will prevent you from becoming dehydrated. Also, use plenty of biodegradable sunscreen and insect repellant. Light clothing is the best option because of the weather which we already mentioned is humid. In closing, Jamaican people are welcoming and warm so feel right at home and enjoy yourself.
