Jamaica is a great place to have fun, relax, and have a fantastic adventure! Visiting somewhere new can be a thrilling experience; suffice to say you’re wondering what to expect when you land in Jamaica, right?
Well, these five tips will ensure you have a perfect trip and have a wonderful time on your Jamaican vacation!
· When to Visit
Jamaica has a tropical marine climate that stays relatively 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, and this is 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 does not fall during peak season, so your costs will be lower.
· What to Do
Your vacation is a great time to relax and explore new land and culture. Jamaica is home to some of the most beautiful beaches globally, and there is also deep-sea fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, scuba diving, and snorkeling.
But always remember to relax and explore your hotel first before you get started on the more thrilling activities!
· What to Eat
Food is a big part of your vacation. When it comes to Jamaica, we suggest that you try out the local cuisine. Expect fresh seafood and some tropical fruits and vegetables that are pretty rare in other parts of the world.
Food time is also a great time to bond with the locals. They’ll like you better and be more open to you 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 recommend. There are lots of them to choose from so you’re spoilt for choice!
· Other General Tips
Jamaica is not only known for the beaches, but it also has excellent waterfalls too! Carry small bills instead of big ones because they will help when you tip or make small purchases.
The US dollar is widely accepted across the island, so you do not need to convert to the local currency if you’re coming from the USA.
Do not forget to drink lots of water on your trip. This will prevent you from becoming dehydrated. Also, use plenty of biodegradable sunscreens and insect repellant. Light clothing is the best option because the weather we already mentioned is humid.
