With endless, beautiful beaches and majestic national parks, Jamaica is a top destination for travelers of all ages. Plan your stay in one of the many convenient Jamaica vacation rentals, and discover what this island nation has to offer.
Jamaica has a tropical climate, which means you’ll find hot and humid temperatures in just about every season here. In fact, the temperatures don’t fluctuate much, with highs around 90 degrees and lows in the low 70s year-round. Jamaica remains humid for most of the year, and its rainiest months are in the spring and fall. On average, October is the rainiest month and is also the end of the hurricane season in Jamaica. Due to the threat of hurricanes, November to April is generally the best and most popular time to visit Jamaica.
How to Get Around Jamaica
Since Jamaica is an island nation, most visitors arrive by flying into Sangster International Airport, on the northwestern edge of the island. Though it’s possible to rent a car when you arrive, keep in mind that Jamaican drivers keep to the left side of the road. For many visitors, taking taxis or minibuses to and from attractions, beaches, and Jamaica villas is easier and more relaxing.
Things to Do in Jamaica
When you visit Jamaica, it’s never a bad idea to start your day at the beach. Negril’s Seven Mile Beach is one of the island’s most popular, and for good reason. During the day, this expansive beach is relatively family-friendly and is a great place for a swim, and during the evening, you can find many beach bars.
Montego Bay offers a variety of activities and unique attractions. These include Jamaica’s Spirit of Reggae, the Bob Marley Experience, Jungle River Tubing, river rafting on the River Bueno, and the Greenwood Great House historic site.
For more active travelers, Dunn’s River Falls and Park is a popular spot that features waterfall climbs, swimming areas, and a beach. If you’re in the mood for a day of hiking and climbing, head to Blue Mountains National Park on the island’s eastern side. Trails here can be long, winding, and challenging, so consider consulting with a tour guide before making the trek.
If you’re a reggae fan, don’t miss your chance to visit the Bob Marley Museum. Located in the musician’s former home, the museum allows visitors to tour each room and watch classic performances in the theater.
Where to Eat in Jamaica
Jamaican cuisine itself gives visitors and locals alike the perfect opportunity to reflect on the country’s Spanish, British and African history. Grab a hearty Jamaican breakfast at Hot Pot in Kingston, where you’ll find the classic combination of salt cod with a sauce of ackee fruit, peppers, and other savory flavors. In Montego Bay, you won’t want to miss the Pork Pit, which boasts some of the island’s best jerk chicken and barbecued pork. In Negril, the Hungry Lion serves up some of the island’s zestiest seafood and vegetarian foods, like fish cakes and spicy shrimp. Other popular dishes include curry goat and fried plantains, while desserts include tropical treats like mango ice cream, asham and blue drawers.
Best Jamaican Nightlife
On the Negril waterfront, Rick’s Café is known for its legendary sunsets, which you can view from terraces on the naturally formed cliffs. Cool off with a rum punch, mojito, or tropical martini and take in a sunset you won’t soon forget. For live music and sports, head to Usain Bolt’s Tracks and Records, where you can enjoy a cold beer or cocktail while dancing to some of Montego Bay’s hottest jams.
Whether you’re seeking secluded stretches of sand, beachfront Jamaica vacation rentals, or a relaxing vacation hotspot, you’ll find it in Negril, Kingston, Montego Bay, and all across Jamaica.
