Jamaica Destination Guide

Getting to, from and around Jamaica

There are direct flights from the UK to Jamaica, including both scheduled services with Virgin Atlantic and BA, and charter flights from regional airports with TUI, including Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow. It's easiest to have an airport transfer waiting for you to take you to your hotel, but hiring a car is also possible here and a great way to get out and explore if you can't spend every day by the pool.

Holiday Types

Family Holidays

Jamaica is a great island for families. There are a bunch of family friendly hotels with kids clubs and activities. Take a look at places like Beaches Ocho Rios and the Royalton White Sands Resort for some kid friendly inspiration.

Villa Holidays

Self catering villas are another awesome way to enjoy the island. There's something special about hiring out your own home for a week or two, buying groceries from the local supermarket and eating out at some of the local bars and restaurants.


It's so easy to see why people choose Jamaica for their honeymoon. If you really do want to escape the kids, there are plenty of adult only hotels here like the Ocean Eden Bay and the Sandals Negril.

When To Go

Being in the Caribbean, Jamaica enjoys year round warm weather, with temperatures staying around the 30° mark, but being a tropical destination means it also rains.


Summer in Jamaica is typically more rainy, although as with most tropical climates, these are often shorter sharp downpours of rain.


Winter is typically the high season when tourist flock to the warmer climate, however, late winter to early Spring is the sunniest time of year in Jamaica and can be a good time to visit as the peak season winds down.
