Although some of Jamaica's road network is unpaved and difficult to navigate, the major tourist areas are linked by well maintained motorways. The A roads link the best known towns and include the A1 which connects Kingston and Lucea via Montego Bay and the A3 which runs between Kingston and Ocho Rios. If you are heading off the beaten track, you should watch out for potholes, and the conditions on the mountain roads may be hazardous. You may also find animals on local roads in smaller villages.
When booking your car hire in Jamaica, here are some helpful tips so you can make the most of your trip:
The Rose Hall is one of Jamaica's most popular tourist spots. This beautiful white plantation house is famous as the one-time home of the fiendish Annie Palmer about whom stories are told in Jamaican folklore. Devon House is a 19th century mansion that was once owned by one of the island's richest men. It is famous today as it belonged to Jamaica's first black millionaire. St Peter's church is often visited because of its stunning Georgian architecture and unique religious artefacts while a trip to Port Royal will take you back in time to the 17th century when it was a British Imperial stronghold and the capital of Jamaica.
Dunn's River Falls may well be Jamaica's most visited attraction. Here, you can walk up the step-like waterfalls and experience the beauty of nature. The Green Grotto Caves take you into a cool underground world where you can explore mystical caverns, while the stunning Blue Mountains are home to the island's highest peak and are a wonderful place to go hiking. For those who are looking for a more relaxing holiday, Mahogany Beach is an idyllic spot. While it may be small it has plenty of Jamaican charm and during the week is a peaceful place to unwind, although it springs into life when the locals visit at the weekend. When you rent a car in Jamaica you can easily access these many fabulous attractions.
Jamaica has been the location for many feature films, with some of the most famous being several movies in the James Bond franchise. Live and Let Die, Dr No and Goldeneye were all filmed on location around the island. Tom Cruise's classic movie Cocktail was partly filmed at Montego Bay's Sangster Airport while Anthony Hopkins, Aidan Quinn and Brad Pitt all came here to film Legends of the Fall at St Ann in Ocho Rios.
Jamaica is an island without any land borders or international car ferry services. You therefore will not be able to take your rental vehicle outside the country.
