Tips and Advice

FAST FACTS

  • GETTING THERE: Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay is one of the leading entry points to the island. This airport can be congested, so it's a good idea to arrive extra early for departing flights and keep your eye on your luggage at all times! Montego Bay is a great place to spend a few days before taking off to other Jamaican destinations.  Getting fro the airport to your hotel can be a breeze if you make arrangements for an airport pickup in advance.
  • AIRPORT CODE: MBJ is the code for Sangster International Airport.

HELPFUL HONEYMOON HINTS

  • KEEPING IT REAL: The "Hip Strip" of Montego Bay is a ton of fun, but, as in any foreign city, keep your wits about you, especially after a cocktail or two!!!! The Strip is THE place to be after dark, but the same safety tips apply as in almost any "big city" nightlife area around the world:  Aggressive street vendors, drunk drivers and petty criminals are always something to be aware of.
  • TRY THE LOCAL STREET FOOD! Snacks from stands along the Hip Strip can be delicious! Authentic jerk pork or grilled spareribs with hot sauce are inexpensive treats.
  • MONEY MATTERS: Exchange rates will be more favorable at the airport, banks or your hotel rather than in shops or restaurants or on the street.
  • INSIDERS' TIPS: Many restaurant bills include service charges of 10-15%. It is not necessary to leave more unless the service has been spectacular!
  • MONEY SAVING DRINKS: Imported drinks such as Vodka and Scotch can be expensive. Save money for more fun by enjoying a cool Rum Punch or a local beer instead.
