Travel Jamaica

A page for yaadies looking to explore yaad and visitors of yaad. Welcome! 🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲

An adventure awaits in Jamaica if you are ready to find one. 2016 was the year I chose to start seeing more of the world, even if for now it only means my home country. Many blogs, vlogs and websites showed Jamaican places I’d love to visit let alone never heard of before but few shared how to get there or how much they had spent. Thus, Adventures from Elle is about making Jamaica more accessible, one inexpensive & (usually) off-the-beaten-path place at a time. If I haven’t been there yet, rest assured it’s on my list. Get more useful tips here or check out what’s good to see and do in each parish down below.

Things to Do by Parish

A Few Things

  1. I give directions from Kingston so things may be a little different if you’re from or staying in another corner of Jamaica.
  2. Prices are listed in Jamaican dollars (JMD) unless otherwise stated.
  3. By no means are the activities listed above in each parish an exhaustive list. Those are just the places I’ve managed to get around to visiting and writing about at the time you’re reading this.
  4. Adventures from Elle is a blog so expect opinions!
  5. Don’t be a stranger in the comments section. I’m waiting. 🙂

Personal Ratings Explained

You’ll notice I give each place some stars at the end. They range from ☆ to ☆☆☆☆☆ and the reason(s) behind them are listed in each post. I take into account things such as difficulty to find, value for cost, beauty, appeal, facilities and hospitality. Every rating is based on my personal experience there so I can’t guarantee you’ll have the same experience, especially with uncommercialized places that depend on who else goes there that day and natural factors too such as recent rainfall which can muddy the water, change water levels etc.

  • ☆☆☆☆☆- Loved the place! Highly recommend.
  • ☆☆☆☆- Liked the place, would recommend and probably revisit.
  • ☆☆☆- OK or meh. Worth a visit but probably only once.
  • ☆☆- Disliked the place. Likely never going back.
  • ☆- Hated the place, wouldn’t recommend and definitely never going back.
As we say in Jamaica, tek care ah yuhself and walk good! 🇯🇲
