  • 5 Quick Facts You Should Know Before Your Jamaica Trip

    • October 31, 2017 / By Admin

    Where is the best destination that combines culture, entertainment, luscious sceneries and overall relaxation with beauty?

    Jamaica comes to mind!

    The land of Reggae, Jamaica boasts a rich, cultural and authentic African vibe that is only surpassed by its natural bounty of landscapes, extensive coral reefs and tropical weather. But if this is your first time considering Jamaica as an ideal destination for your vacation, don’t fret.

    EmpireOne Travel offers some quick information to guide your holiday decision.

    Learning about Your Jamaica Trip

    1. The Right Location Matters

    There are five basic vacation spots that are popular in Jamaica; Ocho Rios, Negril, Montego Bay, Port Antonio and Kingston.

    Negril is famous for its romantic surroundings since the beach backdrop makes the sunsets look breathtaking. Ocho Rios is more known for Dunn’s River Falls, which should definitely be considered a thing of beauty. Montego Bay is also gorgeous, but is a little farther (90 minutes!) away from the airport, though that’s nothing if you don’t mind the commute.

    2. Jamaicans are Very Laid Back

    So be prepared if you’re in a hurry and the other person is taking their sweet time in coming to you. Perhaps it’s an effect of the surroundings, but Jamaicans don’t show much haste because they don’t want to. However, don’t think of it as a downfall. If you’re going to Jamaica to relax, this laid back attitude might just do you a world of good to calm your nerves.

    3. Mix up Your Accommodation

    Jamaica has some of the most beautiful resorts in the Caribbean. But this doesn’t mean they’re all expensive. Aside from the exclusive options, Jamaica has a long list of budget-friendly options that are sure to keep you within your money limit. So if you’re going alone, treat yourself and book a Jamaica package that offers you some luxury treatment. But if you’re going with family, friends or a special someone, opt for the budget-friendly choice.

    4. Off-Season is Your Best Choice if You’re Looking for Some Seclusion

    Jamaica’s hurricane season runs from July to November. And though it may not seem so tempting to go there during this time, the benefits are quite clear. Low hotel charges, slashed activity rates and sometimes, a beach all to yourself. If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life, this might be the best time to visit.

    5. It’s better to hire a Driver

    Jamaica’s twists and turns are no match for even the best car drivers. Jamaican roads can seem very treacherous, especially for North Americans who drive on the right side of the road. Take the simple way out and hire a driver when you visit. Transport rates are not all that expensive. And with your hands off the wheel, you’ll have time to enjoy the sites without worrying about asking for directions.
