Tips For Luxury Travel In Jamaica
Jamaica’s superior service and amenities have earned it a place among the Caribbean’s premier luxury travel destinations.
But spending more on your stay does not a guarantee a better value, which is why we’ve come up with this list of tips to ensure you have a great vacation – VIP style…
Rent A Villa
Like most North Americans, you’ve probably worked very hard all year and your significant other has convinced you to finally take a vacation.
The best way to get the most out of your precious vacation time and get some serious undisturbed R&R, is to rent a villa.
While nightly rates are typically higher than a single hotel room, villas offers a great value for groups of friends and large families, and will often be cheaper than renting cramped hotel rooms for the whole group.
Besides, the vast majority of villas in Jamaica include staff, gourmet kitchens and some even are located directly on the beach.
And as for couples, it’s hard the beat the romance factor of your own private pool 😉
Look for the Extras
Instead of staring yourself blind comparing prices, compare the value and the extras that each villa provide.
If you’re a boat enthusiast, you might want to consider a villa that has private boat slips allowing you to use the boat as much as you like.
Other extras and bonuses villas often offer is a private beach, tennis court, bicycle, car, etc. Also ask yourself if you will use these things.
Be sure to consider if you will need to pay additional for amenities you want.
Hire a Driver
Jamaica is one of the largest islands in the Caribbean which means there’s plenty to see.
After a few days on the beach with a Red Stripe or Appleton and coke in hand, you’ll probably want to venture further afield and see what life in Jamaica is really like.
You can basically go about this two ways: Rent a car which will cost roughly $600 US / week plus gas and insurance.
Hire a driver for roughly $800 US / week which includes airport transfers and one tank of gas. Most drivers are available for up to 10 hours / day – yes, that’s a lot of exploring!
When it comes to your valuable vacation time, every minute counts.
