What to expect during my trip to Jamaica

by Amber
(Michigan)

QUESTION:

I'm going to Couple SS in Jamaica next week and wondered what to expect while there.

I hear when we fly into the airport we will then take a bus to the resort, but along the way we will stop (since it's a long ride) and it could be unsafe.

Also, are there places to buy gifts for my friends/family members? Basically I'd like to know whatever you'd like to share because I've never been outside of the US and I'm a little nervous.

Also, once we get to the airport, is there any chance I will be separated from my group? What do I need to know for when I arrive at the airport?

Hi Amber,

No need to be nervous, unless it is a bit of travel anxiety, which is OK since you are treading a new destination, and travelling for the first time..

I'll start by referring you to the page which speaks about safety in Jamaica.

I'll then suggest you read these Stories from recent visitors.

Regarding gifts, there are lots of places to by gifts for family members.
Along with the craft markets and Duty Free shops, you'll also find unique gift items at the major tourist attractions you'll likely to visit.

The hotels also have areas where you will find something unique; never mind the roadside vendors; not only do they sell fresh Jamaican fruits, you'll likely get durable gift items as well- at good prices too!

About what should you expect generally speaking?

Learn more in my pages on Jamaican Culture, Vacation in Jamaica, Jamaican Food, Facts on Jamaica, and maybe even by viewing my photo album!

I hope hat helps.

Finally, come with an open mind and I am confident you'll have a wail of a time!

Stay in touch Amber.
