Travel Guide from Italy to Jamaica

Places to stay and things to do

If your Caribbean vacation involves Jamaica travel, first you need to determine what area of Jamaica is the best to visit. When choosing the best places to stay in Jamaica, all-inclusive resorts will be at the top of the list, as Jamaica is known for all-inclusive resorts like Sandals and Secrets resorts.

Here are a few places you should visit if you’re traveling to Jamaica:

1. Montego Bay

Montego Bay is often considered the best place to stay in Jamaica. It is the second largest city in Jamaica, and the airport has several direct flights from the United States. Montego Bay is also one of the main cruise ship ports in Jamaica. If you want a little bit of urban adventure to mix in with your beach explorations, Montego Bay is the best city to stay in Jamaica as it has a nice mix of both.

While there aren’t as many serene sandy beaches in the Montego Bay area, many say it’s the best part of Jamaica for snorkeling. You’ll find a wider variety of Jamaica resorts here, too, if you are looking for budget or mid-range options. Montego Bay has the largest concentration of adults-only all-inclusive resorts, so it could be considered the best place to stay in Jamaica for couples, too.

At night, Seven Mile Beach becomes one of the best party beaches in Jamaica, making Negril a top choice of where to stay in Jamaica for singles.

The town itself is small and laid-back, with enough entertainment to keep you occupied without the chaos of larger cities in Jamaica.

  • Seven Mile Beach

Negril’s Seven Mile Beach is Jamaica’s most popular beach. It boasts miles of white sand, only to be interrupted by the turquoise blue water. Even though Seven Mile Beach is crowded, populated with vendors, and spoiled with shops, hotels, and bars, the majestic blue water and white sand are truly a must-see in Jamaica.

  • Royal Palm Reserve

The 300-acre Royal Palm Reserve is home to 300 animal species and 114 plant species, including the Morass Royal Palms which can only be found in western Jamaica. Visitors can walk the mile long boardwalk through the forest or climb the 40-foot observation tower for a great view of the Silver Spring Mountains. Either way, this is a great thing to do if you want to break away from the addictive Seven Mile Beach in Negril for a few hours.

  • Booby Cay

This small island, named after the booby birds, is a great getaway from the chaos of Negril, as it’s only a short boat ride away. The most popular things to do on the island are snorkeling, sunbathing, and picnicking, but there are many other things to do if those don’t tickle your fancy 🙂 Be sure to eat a fresh grilled lobster or fish from one of the local vendors while you’re there.

  • Rick’s Cafe

Grab a drink or a meal at the popular cliff-side bar, Rick’s Cafe. The cliff-hanging cafe is a popular spot in Negril to watch courageous people jump off of the 35-foot cliff into the turquoise blue waters below. For a real treat, visit while the sun is setting or at nightfall when it’s not crowded and you can enjoy a drink while listening to the waves crash on the rocks.

  • Mayfield Falls

This hidden waterfall has 9 natural jacuzzis and a series of 21 small, spaced out cascades. The “Washing Machine” is the tallest of these falls, at about three meters. The beautiful mountain drive to the falls, and the lack of huge tourist crowds makes Mayfield Falls a nice alternative to Dunn’s River Falls.

3. Ocho Rios

A popular cruise ship stop along Jamaica’s northern coast is Ocho Rios. This is where you’ll find the famous Dunn’s River Falls, one of the most photographed spots in Jamaica. Ocho Rios is probably the best part of Jamaica to visit if you are looking for some outdoor adventures beyond the ocean, or if you are looking for reasonable accommodations.

Ocho Rios has everything from luxury all-inclusive resorts to budget beach hotels. In addition to jungle hikes and waterfalls, Ocho Rios has some excellent beaches, too, like James Bond Beach, famous from the 007 books and movies.

The area grew up around the Cardiff Hall Estate, an 18th century plantation house. The name Runaway Bay comes from the fact that it was once an escape route for runaway slaves.

Protected by a huge coral reef, Runaway Bay is one of the most beautiful areas of Jamaica, with the green grotto caves becoming a popular tourist destination to explore. This is also where you can visit Bob Marley’s childhood home. Runaway Bay has the perfect mix of quiet, laid-back beaches with just enough alternative attractions to pull you from your lounge occasionally.

  • Puerto Seco Beach

This public beach looks out on Discovery Bay, the location where, according to tradition, Christopher Columbus first came ashore on this island. The explorer sailed in search of freshwater but found none, naming the stretch of sand Puerto Seco, or “dry port.” Today the beach is anything but dry; concession stands sell Red Stripe beer and local food, including jerk and patties, to a primarily local beach crowd. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: snorkeling; swimming.

5. Kingston

Wondering where the best place to stay in Jamaica is? Kingston is the capital of Jamaica, and the largest city on the island. If you are looking for a cultural experience and to interact with more locals than resort staff, then consider staying in Kingston. Kingston has several museums, including the Bob Marley museum, plus historic mansions and the largest botanical garden in the Caribbean.

Take a ride on the double decker bus, or hop a ferry over to Wolfe Island. There’s also a farmer’s market and several excellent restaurants in Kingston. No matter where you stay in Jamaica, adding a few days in Kingston will give you a better sense of Jamaican culture.

Unlike the popular beaches in Jamaica, these black sand beaches are practically deserted and are truly a place to lay back and relax.

  • Lovers’ Leap

Legend has it that two enslaved lovers jumped to their death together to escape being separated from each other.

  • Bamboo Avenue

Getting around Jamaica

When you travel to Jamaica, you might want to just relax in the beach and other cool places to visit, but if you decide to move around, there are a number of ways to take you round. Renting a car might be the most convenient way to go round, but they are quite expensive.

If you are looking for another easier but cheaper alternative, then you should try out privately run minibuses. Public transport services are also cheaper, but they are quite chaotic.

By Minibus

Getting around Jamaica with minibuses of a variety of options. They range from pockmarked minivans to air-conditioned, tinted-window coaches. And they are a viable option for short hops and cross-island trips. Fairs range from 50-300 Jamaican dollar which are paid to a conductor after boarding and services start at around 6am and continue until 7 or 8pm, and are severely reduced on Sundays.

Regular minibuses do have some definite downsides: drivers can show little interest in the rules of the road, and passengers are squeezed in with scant regard for comfort – and if you’re one of the first to board, you’ll have to wait until the vehicle is full before it’ll leave.

On the other hand, they are a great way to get a window into Jamaican life away from the resorts. Bear in mind that you may not be able to get a direct service to your destination, especially if you’re travelling a fair distance. Non-stop long-distance buses do exist, though, so if you’re not up for an interrupted journey, ask the locals if and when direct buses leave. 

All towns have a bus terminal of sorts, either a proper bus station or a designated area along the main road, often near the market, and buses have their routes written on the front, back and sides of the vehicle. Conductors shout out the destination repeatedly before departure, scouting the area for potential passengers and cramming in as many as possible.

Once on the road, buses and minibuses will stop anywhere to pick up or drop off passengers (except in Kingston, where they’re restricted to bus stops and terminals). If you want to get off before the terminus, tell the conductor and fellow passengers where you’re going when you get on, or yell “one stop”, or something similar, when you get there. To get on a bus mid-route, just stand by the side of the road and flag it down, but bear in mind that the earlier in the day you travel, the better – being stuck in a bursting Jamaican bus on a boiling afternoon is no picnic.

By Car

Renting a car is by far the best way of getting around and seeing Jamaica, it is a relatively easy country to drive in. Distances are small, and while some locals have a bad approach to driving, most are extremely courteous. However, rental prices are high, averaging around US$50 per day – though rates can go as low as US$30, and you’ll usually get a discount if you rent for more than a few days. Third-party insurance is normally included in the rental rate; you’ll have to pay another US$12–25 per day to cover potential damage to the car. 

If you choose not to take this out, you’re liable for every scratch on the car, whether caused by your own error or not. Websites like carhire300.com and holidayautos.com usually offer slightly better rates than going direct to the car hire firm; expect savings around US$5–$10 a day.

By Taxi

Jamaican taxis vary from the gleaming white vans and fancy cars of the Jamaican Union of Travelers’ Association (JUTA; Kingston 927 4534; Montego Bay 952 0813, Negril 957 4620, Ocho Rios 974 2292; jutatours.com), the official carriers, to the Japanese estate cars that are the vehicle of choice for most taxi men. Licensed taxis carry red number plates with “PP” or “PPV” on them, and there are a number unlicensed taxis that will offer their services –although hiring one (for a variety of reasons from lack of insurance to general safety) is not recommended. 

Upcoming events in Jamaica

Reggae Marathon Negril (December 1-2) – this is a premier International Marathon that features participants worldwide. In addition to the Marathon, there is a Half Marathon and a 10K to facilitate a broader cross-section of participants. The two-day event includes an exciting party and displays of running-related art and craft products.
