Travel Advisory Tips for Staying Safe While Visiting Jamaica

Taking a trip to an island like Jamaica can be a journey to paradise. Of course, traveling anywhere involves a good amount of personal responsibility. When you leave your home country, you are entering into a world where the customs and scenery you are familiar with are no longer the norm. When you’re not prepared for the differences in culture, it can lead to a variety of problems. While some issues are minor, staying safe should be a top concern. The more you know about your destination, the easier it will be for you to feel safe.
Take a look at these travel advisory tips for anyone looking to visit Jamaica in the future. With a little bit of preparation, you’ll be ready to maximize your enjoyment of the trip and provide yourself with peace of mind.

Move During the Daylight Hours

Jamaica is an island where there are countless sights to see and activities to take part in. Whether you’re excited to lounge around on the beach and sip on mixed drinks or you want to dance the night away at one of the many clubs, there is a certain way you need to go about things. Namely, you only want to travel around during the day. As with any strange or new place you visit, daylight hours provide a level of safety that night cannot guarantee.
This does not mean there are constant threats hidden in the shadows, of course. It is just easier to avoid getting lost when you only drive or walk during the day. If you decide to go to a restaurant or club, be sure that it is located very close to the place where you will be staying. The less distance you have to travel from point A to point B while on vacation in Jamaica, the better your experience will be. Speak with the hotel or resort concierge for suggestions on safe activities for the daytime.

Don’t Take Public Transportation

Another easy way to stay safe when you are visiting an island like Jamaica is to avoid public transportation. A bus might be a convenient way to get around back home, but this is not always the case in other countries. When you get on public transportation, you can wind up in neighborhoods far removed from where you intended to go. Getting lost is one of the easiest ways to wind up in unsafe conditions, and you can avoid this by staying clear of the public buses.
If you’re visiting the island on a southern Caribbean cruise, then you can easily find alternatives to buses. There are car rental options for those who are looking to explore different parts of the island. You can also speak with the directors of your cruise to find out if there are any unique or interesting promotions that can help you with getting where you’d like to go. Before getting in any vehicles, be sure that you trust the driver and feel confident in the reputation of the company providing you the ride.

Stay Aware of Your Surroundings

Whether you’re back home in a big city or you’re wandering the marketplaces of Jamaica’s many resort towns, being aware of your surroundings is key to your safety. Letting your guard down in public might not seem like a big issue, but it is the easiest way for you to miss someone who is trying to steal from you or distract you. In order for you to be completely aware at all times try to limit your phone usage while in public. The less you look at your screen, the more you are taking in about the environment around you.
From the sandy shores to the rich culture, there are many amazing reasons to think about taking a vacation to Jamaica in the near future. While there are a few safety concerns to keep aware of you can easily stay protected by following a few simple steps. Learn what you need to know in advance and get ready for a trip to a beautiful and lush paradise.
