Taking A Road Trip In Jamaica
Jamaica is the best vacation spot in the Caribbean and offers the most amazing road trip scenes. Yes! I might be a little bias but hey, who isn’t? This is my island home we are talking about.
Jamaica is an island of 10,992 square kilometers but has so much to offer. If you are keen to explore, enjoy great food and music, a road trip should definitely be in your itinerary for your trip to Jamaica.

A little reminder, no one under the age of twenty-five (25) is permitted to drive/operate the rented vehicle. Also, your drivers licence must be at least two (2) years old with no endorsement. Your valid home licence is accepted for driving in Jamaica.
Now that you are satisfied with your rental vehicle let’s discover the many blessings Jamaica has to offer as you enjoy the length and breadth of the island on your road trip.
Here are three (3) road trip destinations that will be sure to excite you and keep you coming back for more:
Road Trip From Ocho Rios to Port Antonio
A road trip from Ocho Rios to Port Antonio will let you discover the greener, lusher side of the island in the parish of Portland. Leaving the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist centre of Ocho Rios behind, the drive takes on a more relaxed feel as it directs you through charmingly simple communities along the coast. Notable stops include GoldenEye, the former home of James Bond’s creator Ian Fleming, and Firefly (possibly the most beautiful coastal view on the island) where playwright Noel Coward not only holidayed but wrote some of his most renowned work. Be sure to stop and take plenty of photographs on the way. Eat some jerk chicken or pork at Boston and relax.
Road Trip From Treasure Beach to Negril
This road trip is about two hours in length and traverses the rugged southern coastline of the island. Here travelers can take in the stunning sights and sounds of southern Jamaica. Grab a fish and festival at Border and top it off with a cold Red Stripe beer. Stop in Bluefields to pay homage to former reggae singer Peter Tosh. Take a swim at any of the public beaches along the way before arriving just in time to catch the stunning sunset on the 7 miles of beach in Negril.
Road Trip From Papine to Newcastle
If you are staying in Kingston a road trip up this winding road from the hot and dusty flats of Kingston takes approximately an hour. It takes you to the cool and refreshing Blue and the John Crow Mountains. Stop to take a photo or have a cup of Blue Mountain coffee along the way (the best you will ever taste). Pack a picnic and visit Hollywell National Park where you can take a guided hike to a breathtaking waterfall. Either way, the drive is a great way to spend a day and enjoy beautiful Jamaica.
