If you want a romantic honeymoon getaway - honeymoon in Jamaica!
What could be a more romantic honeymoon destination than watching the sunset over Montego Bay, sipping pina coladas in Ocho Rios or sunbathing "au natural" on the beaches of Negril.
Jamaica has it all; steel drums playing calypso music, clear blue Caribbean waters, soft breezes, warm sand, and a slow island pace.
Hotels and resorts offer a dizzying array of activities from sailing to shuffleboard. You can schedule a bicycle tour or deep sea fishing excursion, play 18 holes of golf, go scuba diving or ride in a glass bottom boat - all before lunch.
In the evening, take a sunset catamaran cruise, eat by the light of the stars, stroll the beaches hand in hand or swing your hips, let loose, and dance to a reggae beat.
Before leaving confirm with your travel agent or hotel to see if you have booked an all inclusive honeymoon vacation. No need to get hit with unexpected travel expenses.
The best time for a Jamacian honeymoon is between November and May. There are affordable deals to be found, during the off season. If traveling during hurricane season consider purchasing travel insurance and contact the National Weather Service before you leave.
Jamaica is approximately:
4 hour flight from New York City
71/2 hour flight from Los Angeles
6 hour flight from Chicago
If you do not have a passport be sure to fill out a passport application 6-8 weeks before your honeymoon.
Tip: Don't lose the immigration card you'll be handed at the airport, you will need to give it to Jamaican customs when you leave.
