Jamaica Travel Tips


There are two major International airports in Jamaica with non-stop flights from many US cities; Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston and Donald Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. The airport in Montego Bay tends to cater more to tourists heading to Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, and Negril.

There is a third airport (Ian Fleming International Airport) in Jamaica as well. This airport is ten minutes from Ocho Rios, and it is designed to accommodate guests with their own private planes or chartered planes. With Customs and Immigration on site, this conveniently places villa vacationers within 20 minutes of our staffed waterfront villas in Ocho Rios.
