There are a few things you need to know when you decide to go to Jamaica. Jamaica is an island and there are many areas you can visit. Some people might prefer different parts of Jamaica. For instance, you might prefer to go to Montego Bay rather than Negril or going to Ochos Rios instead. There are many different parts of Jamaica and they are all different, just like there are different parts of the United States.
Jamaica is a very touristy place, and therefore you’ll have a lot of stores and stands that are selling items that may not be in your best interest to buy. For example, that necklace you might love may not be in your budget. Many of the shops and stands have a nice variety of items offered, but they might not be the right route for you. You should keep in mind of how much money you want to spend and stay in that budget so you don’t go over and spend too much money. Additionally, you might not be aware of the different styles of selling that take place in Jamaica versus America. For instance, if you don’t want to purchase something, then you don’t have to in the United States, but in Jamaica, they may see you want something and will try to barter with you to get you to buy it.
The people of Jamaica are very nice and they are very laid back. When you go for your vacation, you should be prepared to have a nice, long, relaxing vacation with some very night people. The atmosphere in Jamaica is very chill and very relaxing. When you go on vacation, it’s not a time to work, even if your work email is filling up. It’s not a time to check your phone. It’s a time for you to relax and enjoy the beautiful beaches with the relaxing people. When you come to visit Jamaica, be ready to relax and actually relax. Slow down from your everyday hectic schedule and stop hurrying everywhere. Everyone is so laid back and chill that you’ll realize how pointless it can be to run around trying to do everything or working your vacation away.
Lastly, the weather in Jamaica is beautiful, but it’s probably not what you’re used to. Jamaica is near the equator, more so than America, so it’ll be muggier, and the temperature may be higher than you’re used to. Be prepared to feel hot and want to spend more time on the beach. Pack clothing that will feel light and keep you protected from the sun. Make sure to put on lots of sunscreen and be ready for feeling a little out of your element with the rising temperatures.
