Getting To, From & Around Jamaica
Getting to Jamaica from the UK is a breeze, thanks to well-connected flights from major airports. Direct flights from London Gatwick, Heathrow, and Manchester to Jamaica's primary airport, Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, make the journey convenient. You can also fly into Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, another major gateway. Plus there are indirect options via places like New York and Miami. All inclusive holidays to Jamaica have never been easier.
There are three main tour operators with their own direct flights from the UK to Jamaica, Virgin Holidays, British Airways and TUI. Other companies like On The Beach, Love Holidays and Expedia can also package up flights and all inclusive accommodation. TUI usually include airport transfers and one piece of check-in luggage for free when booking a package to Jamaica with a TUI flight. Brands like Jet2 and easyJet don't offer services to the Caribbean.
Once in Jamaica, several transportation options are available to explore the island. Most ABTA and ATOL protected tour operators and all-inclusive resorts offer airport transfers, ensuring a hassle-free start to your holiday. For independent holidaymakers, taxis and rental cars are readily accessible, although driving in Jamaica can be an adventure in itself due to varying road conditions.
During your stay, consider using the Knutsford Express, a reliable and comfortable bus service that connects major towns and cities across the island. Alternatively, explore the local culture by taking route taxis, known as "JUTA" or "JCAL" taxis, which are shared and affordable.
Where To Stay
Jamaica boasts a diverse range of accommodation options to suit all preferences and budgets. All-inclusive resorts are a popular choice, offering guests the convenience of meals, drinks, and entertainment bundled into one package. The northern coast, particularly Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, and Negril, is dotted with renowned all-inclusive resorts like Sandals, Beaches, and Secrets. These resorts provide access to stunning beaches, water sports, a variety of dining experiences and some nightlife options too.
For a more intimate and authentic Jamaican experience, consider a boutique hotel and or friendly guesthouses. Kingston, Jamaica's capital, offers a mix of upscale hotels, making it a great base for exploring the city's history and culture. In Port Antonio, you'll find eco-friendly resorts nestled in lush rainforests, providing a serene escape.
If you're seeking a unique adventure, spend a night in a treehouse, cliffside villa, or beachfront bungalow during your trip. These unconventional accommodations offer a close connection to Jamaica's natural beauty and are perfect for couples and honeymooners.
