Cheap Flights to Jamaica

Ah yes, the island known for its pristine beaches, jerk chicken and raggae music that will move you. Jamaica is an island country in the Caribbean Sea, home to good vibes and famous figures like Bob Marley and Usain Bolt. Every city in Jamaica has its own unique appeal, making it almost impossible to choose just one to visit. Whether you're set on seeking out the best Raggae tunes in Montego Bay, the best beaches in Negril, or the nightlife in Kingston, rest assured that a good time is guaranteed.   

The Best Time of Year to Travel To Jamaica

Are sunny days and very little rain what you're after? The best time for you to visit Jamaica is between December and March. Be sure to book far in advance - you won't be the only one chasing the sun during this season so planning ahead will usually mean you'll have more options to choose from at a lower cost.

If price is your priority, consider booking your Jamaican getaway between April and May. On average, the weather is still fairly dry, rates are typically lower for accommodation, and you'll enjoy a more peaceful vacation with less tourists on the resorts and at the cruise ports.

What to Do in Destination

Jamaica may be the perfect fly & flop destination, but don't be fooled by the chill vibes and fellow sun sloths, there's plenty more to do and see in this Caribbean paradise.  

Get your groove on in Montego Bay, where you'll find a number of artists and local lovers of Raggae. For a little more excitement, consider a stay in Kingston, the cultural heart of the country. This city's nightlife, daily hustle and bustle, must-see markets, historical offerings in the form of beautiful buildings, a national art gallery and the Bob Marley Museum make for a vacation that is far from boring. If adventure is on the list, take a trip to Ocho Rios where you'll find Dunns River Falls or make your way to the calm waters of Negril where getting that scuba certification is ideal for new divers. After you've explored one of these Jamaican jewels, kick back and relax with a Red Stripe beer and some of the Caribbean's finest jerk chicken.
