Our first trip to Jamaica - please advise

by Lisa
(United States)

QUESTION:

O.K....so this is our first trip to Jamaica...and It's overwhelming!! Yet exciting too ...EEEK.

We want to stay ...preferably on the beach...close to Bob Marleys Museum - but is there a beach close...and shopping and crafts.

If I pick a random place close to a beach will I be away from everything else...how much are taxi fees?....are there shuttles....I have so many questions..

I'm bringing my daughter I want some place safe...are there parts of Jamaica I should stay away from.

Please Help....lol. Thanks for any and all information every little bit helps. We are planning a 6 day trip - we haven't made reservations any where yet. Thank you for all your time!!

Hi Lisa,

You certainly have a lot of questions, but never mind, they are all valid - and important too.

I am going to first refer you to my Jamaica Travel Guide page. It will provide you some great insight.

Secondly, I am going to ask that you visit the Visitor Q&A. I have answered a lot of these questions there so I am sure it will benefit you tremendously as well.

Finally, since I am posting this question simultaneously on the website & our facebook fan page, I am also inviting you to follow the responses directly from our avid Jamaica fan base -over there on our our facebook page. I guarantee you someone will have something and somewhere to recommend :-)

Do enjoy Jamaica Lisa!!!

Rent a beach house on the south side like Black River or Treasure Beach. You make a day trip and visit Bob Marley Museum/Mansion. Stay at the Courtliegh Hotel in the executive suite. I brought my three boys. There is no babysitting by the Hotel. The Pegasus is better for that.

Hi, all we can say is once you go you will know and i guarantee you will want to return, honestly our son married there in 06 since then we have returned five times just wish we could make Jamaica home now.

We still have so many places to visit and people to see,as with everywhere in this not to go world there are places not to walk unaccompanied but in general no problem go with a open heart you will be amazed at the warmth of the Jamaican people,one love n respect.
