Tourists Hanging Out At Doctor's Cave In Jamaica
QUESTION about: Amount Of Spending Money For Jamaica vacation
I'm going to Jamaica on the 3rd of Feb for 7 nights and don't no how much money to take.
We are staying in Montego bay in an all inclusive hotel. Only need money for trips (2-3) gifts and drinks if we go out.
How many money would you say to change up ? (sterling)
ANSWER: by Wellesley, Jan, 2016
Its all relative, as I figured you probably already imagine.
But if for example, you are looking to hire a driver/ guide for the entire day, then you are looking at between 100-130 USD for the day round trip.
If you are going to travel on group transportation though that would be much cheaper.
Just check with the guest services department at the hotel for information on those.
For a nearby city trips though, it would be a bit less, perhaps between 35 and 60 USD.
So outside of the transportation, you'd just need monies for the entrance to the venues/ attractions and for any rest stops. or roadside stops along the way.
Attractions vary too, but Dunn's River falls for example, currently charges 20USD per visitor.
You can expect to spend between 10 and 30 USD at rest stops or small roadside shops.
You can get into the top beaches here for less than 10 USD (Doctor's Cave charges $6 USD) but you might want to consider cash for drinks/food while there.
And then finally, perhaps just a few change for tips/appreciation.
It is acceptable to give a tip of $5 USD dollars to a bus driver or baggage carrier.
I hope this helps :-)
