LA to Jamaica – 6 top ranking travel tips

19 November 2018 USA No comment


We could wax lyrical about Jamaica’s sun, sea and sand — but you can find these attractions at thousands of other locations worldwide.

What makes Jamaica special is that as well as the typical tourist-trap elements, it also features an interior packed with magnificent verdant mountains, an abundance of idyllic waterfalls, musical ingenuity with global reach and locals who combine cool, charming vibes with steely determination.

There’s a significant Jamaican population in LA, as evidenced by organizations like the Jamaican Cultural Alliance and restaurants like Wi Jammin in the City of Angels’ Pico Boulevard.

So it’s the ideal destination for LA Jamaicans who want to find their island roots, or any Angeleno who wants to crack open a cold beer and chill out in one of the most blissful places on earth.

Whatever your travel motivation, here are six top ranking travel tips for LA to Jamaica adventurers.

  1. Blue Mountains

If you’re reasonably fit and yearning for some spectacular scenery, Jamaica is a great place for hiking.

So book a Blue Mountain tour with Island Routes before you depart and look forward to local guides leading you up the stunning 2256 meter peak which offers views of Cuba from the top on a clear day.

  1. Chronixx

Music fans who want to get up to speed with the latest reggae should plug into the Chronology album by Chronixx on the plane over to Jamdown.

This young Spanish Town native is at the vanguard of a roots revival that’s taking the music world by storm.

  1. Marlon James

Travelers who like to research a destination’s history prior to their arrival should get lost in the patois and political intrigue of A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James.

This Booker Prize winning novel is a powerful page-turner that’s nothing short of captivating.

  1. LAX commute

Packing yourself into cramped public transport to reach the airport is the antithesis of a relaxing holiday — you’ll feel ruffled and restricted all the way.

Better to find parking at LAX on Looking4.com and cruise to the terminal in your own ride — pay a little extra for a valet option for superstar-level convenience.

  1. Frenchman’s Cove

Subtropical Portland is regarded by some Jamaicans as the nation’s most breath-taking parish and the jewel in the crown must be Frenchman’s Cove near Port Antonio.

This picture postcard horseshoe beach is small enough to feel private and its golden sands and azure Caribbean water are bordered by a gentle stream that’s as warm as a bubble bath. Not to be missed.

  1. Jakes

Legend has it that long ago, a group of shipwrecked Scottish sailors washed up on the shores of Treasure Beach in Jamaica’s St Elizabeth parish, got on swimmingly with locals and produced beautiful descendants with copper complexions and blue-green eyes.

Spend some time relaxing at Jakes Hotel to research whether there’s any truth in this tall tale — kick back in the Boho-chic surroundings and let the bartender tell you all about it.

We hope you enjoyed our six top ranking travel tips. Share your own Jamaican tourist advice in the comments section.
