    Getting Around in Jamaica

    Thanks to the resourcefulness of Jamaicans, getting around in Jamaica is easy and depending on how fare you want to go and how much you want to spend, you'll always have a way to reach your destination by buses, taxis, planes, shared vans and even motorcycle.



    By Airplane
    Airplane is the most expensive way to visit Jamaica of course, but if you compare it to the time it will take to move far inside the country with the time you got left in your holidays, you'll probably think again.

    Domestic flights can be arranged from most hotel lobby travel agent if you want to get the best prices go straight to the airport.

    Public Transportation
    Public transportation is cheap but not short of an adventure if you are not used to tropical countries. All existing vehicle can be transformed in taxi or mini tour bus but we advise that you always use a licensed transporter.

    For some destinations you'll have to trust unbranded vehicles to reach remote beach resorts and in that case patience is the best friend of the negotiation.


    JUTA

    Juta is the official and recommended transporter in Jamaica for tourists. It was created specially to fit travelers needs and is well equipped.

    Juta provides a wide range of air-conditioned cars, buses, vans and limousines and drivers are  trained professionals. Juta's routes cover all major hotel and resorts ares in the Island.


    Renting a car in Jamaica

    Renting a car is easy thing in Jamaica, you'll see dozens of counters upon arrival. Use these counters for local car rentals in Kingston are often crooks and hotels charge enormous prices. Once again take your time to choose, don't follow salesmen.

    Useful information beforehand

    Banks/Currency
    Very easy to change money in Jamaica, you can do so in every bank but try to avoid changing at hotel counters if you want your trip to Jamaica last longer.
    You can also easily withdraw cash from many Automatic Teller Machines in every bank.



    Use of Drugs
    Using, possessing or selling drugs in Jamaica is prohibited, be careful, you can smoke weed everywhere but you'll have to avoid traps and tricks... just do it at home or on the beach. Stay away from cocain in Jamaica, it is widespread and dangerous.



    Driving in Jamaica
    Jamaica is driven on the left, don't forget that.

    Speed limit is 50 kh (30 mh) in city areas, and 80 kh (50 mh) on the Express Way.

    International licenses are recognised but it's not one of these you need in Jamaica, If you want to reach your hotel safely you'll have to use your mirrors and your horn.
