Jamaica vacation packages mostly revolve around the all inclusive Jamaica vacations offered by beach resorts. In general, these packages refer only to the facilities, services, and meals provided on the premises of the resort. Sandals Ocho Rios, for instance, includes golfing in its all inclusive package because it maintains its own golf course. Guests interested in such recreation as horseback riding would have to make arrangements elsewhere.

Other types of Jamaica vacation packages are available, and for those interested in package deals to save money or just to have one bill to handle, they can go online to browse tourism websites. Most countries have plenty of organized tours, with a leader and transportation provided. Jamaica is not big on escorted tours, although you will see Jamaican guides hired by one or two visitors for a personal tour.

Bargain Jamaica Vacation Packages

Jamaica vacation deals are not the same thing as tours. "Package tours" are misnomers, because you pay a discount group rate, but you are not part of an organized tour. Jamaica vacation packages usually include airfare, a choice of hotels/resorts/inns, and car rentals. Aside from saving money, one of the best things about these packages is that there are several options at various prices.

If you shop around, you can find packages that include airfare, hotel, and transportation to and from the airport for less than the price of the hotel by itself. There is a simple explanation: Jamaican packages are sold in bulk to tour agencies who resell them to tourists at a discount. Comparison shopping is invaluable in situations like this in which you have to sort out many offerings. Going online is the most convenient way to investigate all the kinds of packages that are available.
