5 Things to Pack for Your Trip to Jamaica


Make sure you don’t skip packing these for your trip!

Lonely Planet Jamaica which is available as a paper copy or in a Kindle edition.

Mosquito Repellant is the single most important thing you’ll want on you as soon as dusk hits. Have enough to at least get through the first night.

Full-Sized Travel Towel This is the best travel towel in the world. It’s pretty enough for the beach, large enough that you forget it’s a microfibre towel, and quick-drying, which is crucial in super humid Jamaica.

Sunscreen – sunscreen is crazy expensive in Jamaica compared to other countries. If you can bring some with you, then do. If you’re flying carry-on only, then at least grab a travel-sized to get through your first day before getting to a store.

A GoPro for underwater and action photography. Why go all the way to Jamaica and not be able to capture some of the most exciting parts of your trip?

Don’t Forget About Travel Insurance!

Before you leave for Jamaica make sure you have a valid Travel Insurance Policy because accidents happen on the road. I pay for World Nomads, and I happily recommend them. It’s especially important to get travel insurance if you’ll be hanging enjoying time outdoors!


I have been a paying customer of World Nomads for travel insurance for three years, and I happily recommend them.  If you get sick, injured, or have your stuff stolen, you’ll be happy to have the ability to pay for your medical bills or replace what’s stolen or broken.
