Jamaica Begins High Season With Attractive Deals

The winter season in Jamaica could not have got a better jump start – there are attractive deals on offer including special packages on Jamaica rentals to suit all budgets and tastes.

Jamaica is the leading destination in the Caribbean and attracts an enviable number of visitors to its shores every year. In fact, the last quarter, July to September witnessed an impressive increase of 7.7 percent in visitor turn out as compared to last year. With the High Season ready to start, the numbers are likely to go up much higher. The key drivers to the island are its vibrant culture, easy accessibility and diverse attractions.

And this season, visitors can take advantage of special value-added packages offered by tour operators and some of Jamaica’s finest holiday rentals comprising private Jamaica villas and cottages facing the Caribbean Sea or Jamaica apartments at the heart of all the action, for example, in Ocho Rios.

Also, while on the island, visitors can participate in cultural holiday festivities and attend some of the fascinating winter events. As a case point visitors greatly enjoyed the Reggae Marathon 2010 in Negril on 4 December. The event saw the participation of noteworthy competitors like Jamaican schools, corporate teams, running clubs and international participants like Team Lipstick from New York. More such events are lined up for the rest of the High Season also.

For visitors who want to partake in off-the-beaten-path adventures, Blue Mountain Bicycle Tour’s Ride the Blues package offers participants the opportunity to cruise down the Blue Mountains on a road which The New York Times has described as offering “one of the best scenic vistas in the Caribbean.”

Chukka Caribbean Adventures has invested heavily in Good Hope, a large estate South of Falmouth to develop it as a historic attraction and is offering interesting and fun-filled tours.

Finally, Silver Sands Villas, on the famed north coast of Jamaica, continues to woo its guests with warm hospitality and services. In fact, it is the only Jamaican rental community that provides free car seats for all children using its transportation services. The comments of a satisfied guest on TripAdvisor sum it all up: “I found that many private tour companies do not have car seats. We actually chose our accommodations (a villa in Silver Sands) based on the fact that they provide car seats (really nice, new ones) with their airport transfers and tours booked through their preferred drivers... so we did not have to bring one and we had him in a car seat whenever we were in a car (including a day trip to Ocho Rios and back).”
