Jamaica in the Caribbean is one of the most beautiful island countries and if you are planning to visit this paradise, you need to plan well in advance. It is important to find out all the information you can about the place so that you truly enjoy your vacation and it always remains as an unforgettable and a memorable experience. But before you do that, there are a couple of aspects that you need to look into such as general information on Jamaica, accommodation options and how to get there etc.
Once you have zeroed in on Jamaica, you would need to concentrate on learning a little about the country so that you are better equipped on their culture, surroundings, climate etc. Invariably a number of resources online as well as travel guide and travel books available offline serve as resources for learning about the country. Which time of the year to travel is also important because obviously you would not like to land in Jamaica and allow your holiday to be hampered by seasonal differences.
The good news is that Jamaica is literally an all year destination owing to its tropical maritime climate. Winter months are usually warm during day and pleasant at night while the summer months are really hot. The rainy season usually begins in May and continues up to November. Usually heavy downpours are expected in the months of September and October and, therefore, it is best to avoid these months.
The Jamaican culture is quite a potpourri of cultures and besides African and English, to quite an extent indelible influence of Asian and Middle Eastern regions can also be found. English is widely spoken in most of the major tourist attractions.
Where traveling to Jamaica is concerned, the positive fact is that it has direct service from many countries. Usually a flight from New York to Kingston or Montego Bay takes about 4 hours, while from London and Paris it is about seven hours. To save money on flights it is better you book a round-trip ticket and well in advance. While Montego Bay and Kingston have the largest airports and receive international flights, there are many small airports too that service local flights. If you like to travel in luxury and style you can even choose to opt for a cruise liner such as the Carnival, Celebrity, Costa and Royal Caribbean.
Once your travel plans are taken care of, accommodation should be the next big thing on your agenda. Though Jamaica has plenty of hotels and resorts, another great option is the vacation rental homes. These quaint and charming Jamaican rentals seem to be a popular choice of accommodation for most travelers seeking luxury, comfort and privacy.
Since they are well equipped with all the services and comforts that one expects from a luxurious hotel therefore, they are more popular and even well accepted by all kinds of travelers. The Silver Sands Villas are an ideal abode when away from home in Jamaica. Available in a choice of 2, 3, 4 or more bedrooms, these Jamaica rentals give you the luxury to plan your holiday according to your preferences.
