Getting to Jamaica is a breeze these days, whether you are from Antarctica or Australia - it doesn't really matter.

We get increasing numbers of visitors every year, and I am happy to say the infrastructure [ports,airports,flights etc] to support this trend is also improving.

I suppose the US is the most popular country in the world today [for the wrong or right reasons :-)] and so, Jamaica's proximity to the United States is perhaps another factor that can account for the relative ease in getting to Jamaica.

Although not required in some cases, many of our visitors travel via the US to come to Jamaica. (See where Jamaica is located)

As an island, there are two ways to get here; by Air or Sea [no trains]:


Getting Here by Air

Jamaica has two (2) major international airports, The Normal Manley International in Kingston and the Donald Sangster International in Montego Bay. Read more on Jamaican airports here.

Both airports have undergone major upgrades in the last few years.

These two airports host jets from all over the world including several airlines from Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, North America and of course, those right here in the Caribbean.

From these airports visitors can travel to smaller airports across the country by smaller planes and/or arrange for transfers to their hotel or resort.

From the US, the Miami hub- although requires a little more travel time- is a preferred hub to the Caribbean because of the price advantages, but there are several other options for you to get here.

[By the way, it is approximately 1 & 1/4 hours from Miami to Montego Bay, Jamaica]

Air Jamaica, our national airline is the choice of many of our visitors, but other airlines offer a host of other routine daily flights to and from here.

Getting Here by Sea

From mega liners in Montego Bay and Ocho Rios to small luxury ships in Port Antonio, our cruise ship passengers have celebrated our Ports as some of the best in the world.

Now the World's Travel Awards have reaffirmed that position naming Jamaica as the World's leading Cruise Destination and despite not accounting for the significant visitor arrivals, cruise ship arrivals are every increasing.

Cruise ship passengers may not stay as long, but the most popular ports offer plenty to explore here. Sailors who like to travel on their own can also enter through some of the larger ports then gain clearance to sail around the island for as long as they wish.

Nowadays, Jamaica feature some of the very best cruise ships, including various from the Carnival Line, the Royal Caribbean line, Celebrity Cruises, Princess Cruises and the Norwegian Cruise line.

Whatever your choice or mode of getting to Jamaica, make sure you have an irie time when you get here!
