My boyfriend and I will be travelling to Jamaica for the first time in May. We are torn between the all inclusives in Ochos Rios/Montego Bay versus regular hotels. I found a couple nice places on airbnb at the Palmyra Apartments in Montego Bay. Is anyone familiar with these? Any thoughts? It does seem a bit out of the way, so we’d need a taxi often. Any recommendations, thoughts, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
I forgot my iPad Mini in my hotel room. RIU Montego Bay asked me to get Fedex, and when I was told that it had to be initiated at their location, they then told me to use DHL. Same response...RIU Montego Bay needs to do this for me. Do you have any suggestion on how I can get my iPad Mini back? I live in Canada. Thanks so much for your suggestions!
We are planning our 17th (I think) trip to our fave Caribbean island, Jamaica, for early summer. We have, since our honeymoon 32 years ago, gone AI. Our vacays to Jamaica with our son, now 26, were always perfect. We are, however, at the age where we don't drink as much, and don't eat as much, and the endless flow of food and liquor that we pay for pre-landing seems excessive. Can you recommend anyplace NOT All Inclusive that's on the beach? We like to stay near MoBay as that's where we land, and honestly don't like bussing it somewhere for an hour to start our vacation! Some guidance on small resorts (preferably without children) would be greatly appreciated.
Anyone who has been to Port Antonio lately who can recommend the best way/best place to exchange / draw money? Any good tips regarding dollars / local cash / visa card is very appreciated :) Thanks.
Going to Jamaica/Port Antonio very soon :o))
Any advise on
Where and what to buy wrt data sim card for iPad?
If I wanna hike a day in the blue mountains - will a pair of running shoes/trainers suffice?
And which mosquito/insect repellant works the best and do I find it at the local pharmacy?
Thanks a bunch in advance
How about bringing washing powder/detergent for hand washing in the checked in luggage? It does look rather suspicious with a bag of white powder...;)) should I JUST not take that chance bringing it? I'm in Jamaica for 3 weeks so washing will be needed...however I do not trust local laundry service from earlier experience.. (imagine;)
