Jamaica Travel Packages
Jamaica continues to offer a diverse product of very high quality to its visitors through both its expansive and inclusive nature.
This ranges from top-tiered hotels, guest houses and resorts, to magnificent attractions and unique activities and experiences.
That in part accounted for well our over 4,300,000 visitors last year alone!

But there is a sad truth!
Despite the success, thanks to the many giant booking platforms online, there is still a missing link.
Now don't get me wrong, I love the online booking platforms, they make is super convenient for us to get that important ticket to our destinations, but in many cases they are just that... no localized support or interaction.
In other words, you book and left ON YOUR OWN!
Well this was true until StayCayJamaica came onto the area!
What (Or Who) Is StayCayJamaica?
StayCayJamaica is the brainchild of Rory Richards, a successful Jamaican educator who moved to the USA for business.
He has always been concerned about what he calls 'the missing link'.
He believes that, above everything else, the booking experience should capture the entire experience, at the least as an option - from the flight and hotel, to the community tour guide.
He strongly believes that the local community should reap much of the benefits, unlike the way it is arguably today.
And so a mission created:
"To provide safe, affordable, unforgettable ‘grass-roots experiences’ for travelers to Jamaica"
What Are The Benefits To Me?
And what does that mean for you?
Great question! It means...
- a tool for booking flights to Jamaica, accommodations, car rentals, and as well as tours from locals.
- a directory of personalized services from local drivers, and community guides, and
- a map of Events, Amenities and Services within the local community.
In other words, a total win-win local community experience!
I call it #TheRealJamaica experience
The Social Impact
Mr. Richards and his team is quite passionate about this and when asked about the social impact of this revolutionary venture, he proudly stated that...
- For every dollar we earn from tourists visiting Jamaica, an average of at least 90 cents gets injected into local communities, and also that,
- It creates decent work for Jamaican locals, and even Jamaicans in the diaspora through Affiliate Marketing Online.
How EXACTLY Does It Work?
If you are familiar with Booking.com, Expedia.com, Orbitz.com, Travelocity or any of those giant booking platforms, then this is a breezer for you.
The real difference/ addition is that it connects you to the community!
Here's a short video outlining the concept.
The platform has been operational for just under a year, but is recording phenomenal results, both from the local suppliers (host, drivers etc) as well as our guests (visitors to Jamaica).
The following are just two (2) of the most recent testimonials received on the website:
- I rented a car from my bed and breakfast host which was extremely convenient. Her son was my personal tour guide and my family appreciated the love - Jessica Brown
- Planning a trip to Jamaica is very convenient as all aspects of my vacation can be pre-planned using this platform. Thank you StayCay - Lisa Kim
Despite its surprisingly fast growth, the company continues to seek reputable companies to partner with, allowing it to provide an even more robust and extensive list of services for our visitors and clients, thereby offering the best Jamaica travel packages.
