When traveling to Jamaica many tourists have one goal and one goal only. That goal is usually to have a good time. You may have other ideas. You may wish to enjoy the adventure of a lifetime. In that case, you are planning a themed vacation. Your trip theme is a Jamaica adventure vacation. So, how do you ensure you have the vacation of a lifetime?
Book your airline reservations carefully. If leaving from the Northern United States, a number of stops along the way are likely. These layovers should be minimized and as short as possible. Nothing ruins the mood of an adventure vacation than having to wait 5 hours in a hectic airport. To ensure the quickest flights and shortest layovers, not only book your reservations carefully, but do so in advance.
Choose your Jamaica resort wisely. On the island of Jamaica, you have many resorts to choose from. Examine all inclusive or super inclusive resorts. They simplify the process of planning a trip. One travel arrangement preplans and prepays for a good percentage of your trip, such as your room, food, drinks, tips, and onsite entertainment. Your goal is to have the adventure of a lifetime, not spend your entire trip wondering if you have enough money to make it through. That is just one of the many reasons why all inclusive Jamaica resorts and travel packages come highly rated and recommended.
Another reason why it is important to choose your all inclusive Jamaica resort wisely is for adventure purposes. All inclusive resorts are designed so that you never have to leave. All that you could want and need are right onsite. These Jamaica resorts are home to fitness centers, swimming pools, spas, and multiple bars and restaurants. Other forms of entertainment vary depending on the resort in question. For example, a resort with an onsite golf course allows you to enjoy a fun and adventurous game of golf with the cost of green fees included in your stay.
When planning a Jamaica adventure vacation, you want to look for onsite activities that entice you. For starters, examine beachfront resorts. They have a number of adventurous activities onsite, including windsurfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and waterskiing. Not only look for resorts where these activities are available, but where they are included in with the cost of your stay. Don’t forget land activities too, the Hedonism II and Starfish at Trelawney Beach each have onsite rock climbing walls.
Once you know what adventurous activities are available to you at your all inclusive resort, start to fill in the blanks. You can do these by researching nearby activities and attractions. Start with Jamaica attractions. In Ocho Rios, you will find the Dolphin Cove. There a world of fun awaits you. You can swim with stingrays, dolphins, and sharks. You can also do glass bottom kayaking or drive your own mini boat. No matter where you stay in Jamaica, there are always adventurous attractions nearby.
In keeping with attractions, look at others within a short distance; for example, say you want to visit the Dolphin Cove in Ocho Rios. This will not take all day. What could you do next? The facility is adjacent to the famous Dunns’s River Falls. Careful planning allows you to get the most out of your trip. There will be an adventure every second of the day with careful planning.
As for adventurous activities, remember to check with your all inclusive Jamaica resort first. There is no point paying for an activity that you can do for free onsite. With that said, there are benefits to taking Jamaica tours. You have a number of adventure tours to choose from. A few examples include horseback ride and swim tours, rafting and tubing tours, ATV tours, treetop canopy tours, and more. These tours can last as short as an hour or as long as all day.
In short, there are an unlimited number of ways for you to have the adventure of a lifetime in Jamaica. Choose the perfect all inclusive resort, research Jamaica attractions and activities, and make good use of your time. By doing so, your trip will be one giant adventure.
