What to Bring for Yourself Travel Tips in Jamaica

Be sure to pack light, each bag has to be carried up and down hills. Backpacks work well.

That said, on our last trip, we compiled a list of things we wish we had brought, or were glad we had brought. Perhaps there is something that will be useful to you.

  • Cell phone and international phone card to call from US when your plane is late and you are making a taxi connection in Jamaica. Cell phones will not work once you get to Jamaica. International Calling Cards from 0.5ยข per Minute
  • Water bottle
  • Sandwich for the plane (airport food can be expensive and NASTY)
  • Passport! and Money!!
  • ? Headphones for the plane
  • Gum for the plane
  • TransDermScop Motion Sickness Patches
    Do you get sick with motion? These patches save my life when traveling hard. One behind the ear lasts 3 days and you end up feeling like a normal person.
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug spray (not needed all the time but nice for evenings and bush hiking days)
  • Towel for bathing and beaches
  • Flashlight
  • Earplugs for the rooster/dogs at Mokko's
  • Baby wipes (trick for spit bath in the bush)
