If you are planning an all inclusive Jamaica vacation, there are plenty of things you should know before you go. When traveling outside the United States, it is good to do your research about the country that you are visiting so you know what to expect.
When you fly into Jamaica you will be landing at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. Most of the major airlines fly directly into Jamaica which makes entry rather easy. Passports are required for all passengers arriving by way of air or sea, so make sure to allow yourself enough time to apply for your passport and receive it before your departure date. When it comes to spending money, most major credit cards are accepted throughout the country, so you don’t need to worry about having a lot of cash on hand.
Depending on what you plan on doing while in Jamaica, lightweight tropical clothing is the best thing to wear throughout the entire year. If you are traveling to Jamaica in the winter months, it is a good idea to take a light sweater with you to wear in the evening. If you plan on going out to a fancy dinner, the resort for your all inclusive Jamaica vacations may require men to wear a jacket and women to wear casual dresses or slacks.
Don’t forget that you are traveling to a tropical climate. This means that if your skin is prone to getting sunburned, that the risk will be even higher. So make sure that you bring a hat a some sort of cover up that you can wear on the beach, just in case. You also don’t want to forget your camera when traveling to Jamaica. The waters that surround the island are such a bright blue that you will wanting to take plenty of pictures.
If you plan to drive while in Jamaica, you should also know that they drive on the left side of the road. This can be quite tricky to adapt to when you are used to driving on the right side. Just make sure that you obey the posted speed limit and pay close attention to where you are going. If you don’t feel like braving the roads yourself, your all inclusive resorts Jamaica will probably have a shuttle on-hand to take you where you need to go. You can also call a taxi cab or the local bus service as well.
