Orlando - Montego Bay
Jamaica is a wake-up call to the rest of the world, a constant reminder to pause, enjoy and indulge. Jamaicans' sense of irie is palpable in the swaying reggae beats, the spicy curried goat and the rushing waters of Dunn's River Falls. Along those rustic beaches – as native son Bob Marley sang – don't worry 'bout a thing.
While your excitement mounts for your upcoming Jamaica vacation, let Orbitz help you with the planning. We'll share our top 10 attractions, the best time to go and insider tips.
Jamaicans enjoy tropical temperatures year-round, but May, October and November are rainier months, and some portions of the country are stormier than others. Hurricane season runs from June to November, so keep abreast of forecasts in advance.
If budget is a factor, plan your visit from May to November, when hotel rooms are generally cheaper. Holidays such as Christmas, Easter, and spring break come with higher prices.
Go ahead—bring the kids. At Franklyn D Resort & Spa in Montego Bay, every family gets a nanny.
Relive 17th-century Jamaica on a working plantation. Prospect Plantation offers open-air jitney tours through 1,000 acres blossoming with coconuts, bananas, cassava, coffee plants and sugar cane. You can even feed the ostriches and pet the camels.
If you're planning a pilgrimage to Dunn's River Falls, make sure you pack the proper gear: extra clothes and water shoes with good grips.
Before the end of your trip, pick up a bag of coffee at the Mavis Bank Coffee Factory. Its Blue Mountain beans are some of the most robust you've ever tasted.
Turn up the heat on your couples' vacation. The swim-out suites at Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay allow sweethearts to wade in the privacy of their own room-side pool.
