Does Jamaican Locals Get Discounted Rate At Attractions?
(New Hampshire, USA)
I made some friends on my last visit there and would like them to join me at some of the attractions when I come back in September.
Do they get a discounted price since they live there?

Hey there Jill,
Thanks for asking!
In most cases, at most places, yes, there is a discounted rate for Jamaican locals.
But notice that I said most places. In other words, not all attractions, it depends on where.
I challenged myself and surveyed thirteen (13) of the top attractions in Jamaica, namely:
- Dunns' River Falls
- Rose Hall Great House
- Green Grotto Cave
- Appleton Estate Tour
- Rocklands Bird Sanctuary
- Mystic Mountain, Rainforest Adventures
- Kool Runnings WaterPark
- Sommerset Falls
- Bob Marley Museum
- Greenwood Great House
- Doctors Cave Beach
- Ricks Cafe &
- Martha Brae rafting
And 8 of the 13 does offer discounted rates for locals!
The other 5 had standard rates for everyone, meaning both local and visitor to Jamaica.
Which are they? I categorized them above accordingly.
Note that your local friend(s) will need to provide proof or identification of Jamaican nationality, which would include a Drivers License, Passport or National ID.
I find that, for the most part, it is the 'native' attractions that seem to offer the discounted rates.
Those with mixed offerings, eg. Ricks Cafe
, which has cliff jumping
but also has a bar and restaurant, there is a standard rate for both locals and visitors.
They, in particular, have no entry fee, but charge the same price for their food and drinks, regardless of local or visitor.

- Sommeset Falls Phone: (876) 913-0046. Local Price: 1,500 JMD / 25 USD Standard
Those Offering Standard Rates For Both Local and Visitors (Adults)
- Bob Marley Museum, Phone: 876-630-1588. Standard Price: 25 USD or 3,000 JMD
- Ricks Cafe, Phone: (876) 957-0380. Standard Price: Depends on the menu item

- Martha Brae Rafting, (876) 952-0889. Standard Price: 65 USD or 7,800 JMD for maximum two persons and a child (Same price for one person)
Not also that all the attractions and places to visit above (and those I know of) do offer discounted rates for children, whether local or overseas.
In most cases it is usually half price (50%) of the standard rate and is usually applicable to kids between the ages of 4 and 12 years old.
I hope this helps.
