INSIDER TIPS

Unlike most tropical destinations, it's safe to drink the tapwater as Jamaica. Remember to bring a reusable water bottle to be green!

Unlike most of the Caribbean, Jamaica drives on the left side of the road

US Dollars are accepted nearly everywhere, you may receive change in Jamaican Dollars though

There is more to Jamaica than Reggae and white sandy beaches, take a tour to visit the waterfalls, mangroves or reef snorkelling
