Millions of travelers visit Jamaica each year in search of sun, fun, and relaxation.
The exquisite turquoise Caribbean sea and shimmering white sand never disappoint those seeking the perfect family vacation.
Jamaica has an average temperature of 80 degrees during the winter. Winter and Spring vacation to Jamaica, but you have packed all your summer clothes away.
Creating a packing list is a fail-safe way to ensure that you never, ever forget to bring something important.
The airlines are charging for extra bag fees, this can add up for a family of 4 or more; so keep this in mind when packing. You can leverage the airlines personal-baggage allowance by bringing a larger tote bag giving you extra storage space.
I recommend starting your packing process days prior to your departure date; this will give you sufficient time to purchase any additional items you might need for your vacation.
To help avoid the dreaded pre-trip stress, we are providing some packing tips on what to pack for an Adventure or a Relaxing beach vacation in Jamaica.
Essential Items for your vacation
Packing smartly for your Jamaica Vacation with just 10 pieces of clothing!
Pack bright colors and neutral color tops that are interchange able, comfortable, that you can mix and match with jeans or your skirt.
A pair of jeans is the perfect addition on your packing (Yes, Jean in Jamaica). You can wear them on the plane or dress up at nights.
A skirt allows you to create multiple outfits with just the change of one top. Choose a versatile skirt that you can wear in town, for dinner, or at the beach.
A pair of shorts a must for a beach holiday. They’re easy to wear and can usually be worn several days.
Sun dress – Nothing’s better than to slip into an easy lightweight sun dress for a day out.
A maxi dress in a light fabric keeps you cool and can be worn in different settings.
A Cocktail Dress something you feel comfortable wearing out to dinner or dancing.
A pair of nice sandal and a pair of flip flop if you are going to do lots of walking on the beach.
A pair of sneakers is a must especially if you are going to be going on adventure or hiking.
Remember: don’t pack your stress, relax and enjoy some much needed Vitamin Sea.
Most villas in Jamaica offer a full time laundress at no additional cost. The laundress will do your laundry and return them neatly folded at the end of day.
If they don’t offer laundress, they will all have a laundry facilities. If you know your accommodations will have free full laundry service or facilities, you’re golden. You can bring just a handful of outfits for the duration of your stay.
If you’re staying in a resort or a hotel I would suggest checking with them in advance to see if they offer laundry service and the cost. Some hotels and resorts are known to charge significant fees for laundry service.
