I bet you've seen photo's, videos, and even dream about vacationing in Jamaica (I know I do). Whether you are a first time visitor or a repeat vacationer like me, I'd like to share some helpful tips when visiting the land of "All Right."
1. Try a Jamaican beef patty and an ice cold Red Stripe beer
Patties are also available in chicken, shrimp and vegetable. And it’s very refreshing with Red Stripe beer, a distinct lager and Jamaica’s national brew. I'm not one for beer, but I have to admit it is worth trying.
2. Also try Jerk chicken, a Jamaican foodie staple
You can opt for the mild jerk sauce or if you’re feeling brave, try the authentic Jamaican spicy jerk chicken. Either way, there’s lots of great Jamaican cuisine to try!
3. Apart from its dreamy beaches, Jamaica is the land of waterfalls
These are a must see when visiting. This is one of the reasons why I love Jamaica. You can choose the country’s crown jewel, Dunn’s River Falls or check out YS Falls or Blue Hole for example. My absolute favorite is Dunn's River Falls... maybe one day we can have a chat about why.
4. Travel outside your resort to see a bit of the real Jamaica, it’s a must
Upon arrival to your resort you can talk to a local expert onsite who will provide you with some great insider information for your days out of the resort. If you're working with a travel advisor from Twin Gemini's Travel Agency, they'll also have a local expert onsite through their preferred supplier waiting to help you. There are plenty of water activities and many other great activities for a family, group or romantic vacation in Montego Bay. Your travel advisor can even look into private excursions just for you and your group during your Jamaica vacation.
5. Keep up with Jamaica’s weather
Jamaica is a tropical, humid destination. Bring light clothing and drink lots of fluid to prevent dehydration. It is safe to drink the water.
6. Protect your skin
Always use plenty of biodegradable sunscreen and insect repellent is also highly recommended. We cannot overstate the importance of this item on the Jamaica travel tips list.
7. Feel right at home
Above all, know that the Jamaican people are welcoming and warm, and their friendly nature is genuine. They will make sure you feel at home during your time on their beloved island.
