How to Arrange a Trip to Jamaica

by Bill Yaconis

Are you interested in traveling to Jamaica? If this is your first time doing so, the process may seem overwhelming. The good news is that it is very easy to make your Jamaica travel plans. In fact, you can do so in 9 easy steps.


1 - Obtain a Valid Passport

If you do not have a valid passport this is the first step you will want to take. A passport is required for admittance into Jamaica from the United States. You should allow up to two months for your passport to arrive.

2 - Decide on a Destination

Although you have already selected Jamaica as your vacation destination, where on the island would you like to visit? Negril, Montego Bay, Runaway Bay, and Ocho Rios, are a few popular choices.


When deciding on a Jamaica vacation destination, look for nearby activities and attractions. Should you venture outside of your resort, have many options. Speaking of resorts, popular destinations, such as the four mentioned above, should have more resorts to choose from.

3 - Decide on a Date of Travel

Your date of travel is important, as it will impact your travel arrangements. Most recommend visiting Jamaica for at least five to seven days. When choosing your travel dates, keep in mind Jamaica's rainy season, between the months of May and June and September and October.

Your dates of travel can also save you money on your Jamaica vacation. Typically, it is cheaper to fly in the middle of the week, as opposed to on holidays or weekends.

4 - Make Your Airline Reservations

You should have a number of options when traveling to Jamaica. For that reason, be sure to compare them all. Look for airlines with the shortest layovers, especially if you are coming from the Northern United States. Most importantly, price compare to find the best deals.

5 - Examine and Compare Jamaica Resorts

On the island, you have multiple Jamaica resorts to choose from. Instead of opting for the first resort you come across, examine and compare your options. In terms of overnight accommodations, it shouldn't be about getting the cheapest price, but getting the better value.

To get the most out of your vacation, examine all-inclusive Jamaica resorts. They are a great deal and convenient to book, as most of your vacation is included in their costs.

This should include food, drinks, tips, and some entertainment.

It is also recommended that you examine the purpose of your vacation, as it can help you find the perfect Jamaica resort. In additional to traditional resorts, there are Jamaica family resorts, couples resorts, singles resorts, and adult only resorts.

6 - Make Jamaica Resorts Reservations

When making reservations for a Jamaica resort, use a trusted online website or go directly to the source. This is important with all-inclusive Jamaica resorts, as you don't want any strings attached.

Make sure the dates for your resort and airline reservations match.

7 - Research Area Attractions

Having a good time is an important part of planning a trip to Jamaica. Before you leave, use the internet or request free travel guides to familiarize yourself with local attractions.

Guided tours come highly rated and recommended. If concerned with safety, inquire at your resort as to which areas of Jamaica are the safest to visit.

In addition to researching area attractions, closely examine your Jamaica resort. Many have a number of amenities, services, and facilities available for you to use.

Beachfront resorts should allow free access to the beach. Upscale resorts may have an onsite golf course or fitness center. Family resorts are likely to have scheduled events, a playground, and game room.


8 - Arrange Transportation

If you intend to spend most of your Jamaica vacation at your resort, transportation may not be an issue, but how will you get to the resort from the airport? Inquire about airport transfers and their costs, as it may be cheaper than taking public transportation.

9- Set Aside Spending Money

Even if you opt for a Jamaica all-inclusive travel package, where the cost of your food, drinks, tips, and entertainment is included, extra spending money is recommended.

Whether you want to purchase souvenirs or visit attractions with admission fees, access to at least a hundred dollars is advised. Since many credit and bank cards are accepted, this does not all necessarily need to be in cash.
