You've heard all the great stuff about Jamaica right? The tasty food, the warm and friendly people, the exhilarating sports and culture, the warm climate, sandy beaches, heart-pumping reggae and dancehall music, the beautiful falls and so much more.
And now you are seriously thinking about vacationing here right? Good for you; I did some research and have some ideas to share with you!

The truth is, although Jamaica is perhaps one of the most affordable destinations across the Caribbean, it is still not cheap (nothing of value is cheap though).
So the question is really, "How, and where, can you find the rates for cheap vacations to Jamaica"?
Well, fear not; one advantage of travelling to this island is usually the wide variety of options available. You, like many of the thousands of visitors coming to our shores every year, just need to find creative ways to find an economical option. And believe it or not, there are always deals and specials around!
Perhaps the first, and most obvious option is to get some advice from a travel agent. I mean a Jamaican or Caribbean travel agent, they usually are very knowledgeable about happenings in the country in relation to vacation specials, whether it is from a resort or airline or both. Here are a few local travel agencies you can check out:
How about your very own? Yes, YOUR family and friends? Don't ever overlook them! If you have family members who travel a lot, especially to the Caribbean, and particularly Jamaica, check them out; they might well know or hear about something that could get your attention.
Don’t be afraid to ask your social media friends too! Many of us have friends on Facebook and other social media platforms from all over the world, see them post pictures or videos about their latest vacation in the Caribbean? Don’t be shy, slide in their DMs.
Especially those related to travel whether through the press or online; you might just be lucky to get low-cost airfare and accommodation. A recent trend you can capitalize on as well as social networking websites. You know them, or at least hear about a few of them, like Facebook, Twitter and most importantly, Instagram.
Most top hotels, resorts, restaurants and airlines for example, now have Twitter and Instagram accounts and will post periodic, even daily (and hourly) specials to generate buzz.
I strongly recommend that if you have a favourite hotel or airline (per se) 'follow' them on Twitter and Instagram and then watch their tweets, post, stories, lives and reels. Many post about any giveaways, discounts and other offers they may have on a regular basis that you definitely do not want to miss out on.
This goes without saying but many of us overlook it. If there is a particular resort or hotel you are particularly interested in, it never hurt to give them a call directly. Don't babble with the agent, ask to speak to the manager. Let him or her know how enthusiastic you are about staying there, but you are hoping to get a cheaper rate. Get the idea?
And finally, just like booking a plane ride, start your vacation search early; unless it's going to be prime time, you tend to get much better deals and rates if you book your vacation earlier than wait until the last minute. In fact, some might offer you discounts just to book early.
To many, the cost of a vacation in Jamaica is priceless, but it doesn't hurt to get creative and try to find some good deals! And believe me, deals are always around; just be diligent, smart and keep your eyes and ears open! :-)
And when you get here, please feel welcome - the warm Jamaican welcome! You certainly won't regret or forget your Jamaican vacation!
Notice I didn't even ask IF you are coming?
I expect you to be here soon :-)
