Good morning!

When you arrive at the airport in Montego Bay, the hotel will have a shuttle there waiting for you, So I don’t think you would need to worry about crime too much. Please note that you will have to pay a departure fee when you leave the airport to go home.

Your name on your passport and your name on your airline ticket have to match. Even if you’ve been married for five years, and have a passport in your maiden name, you would still need to book your air in the name that is on your passport.

There are a ton of great activities to do in Jamaica. I would really recommend that you pre-book as many as possible to make sure that you get paired with a reputable vendor, and don’t get closed out of something that you really want to do.

We’re heading to Jamaica for a tour in September. If you need any hotel photos or reviews don’t hesitate to ask.

We have been to Jamaica and we stayed at Riu Ochos Rios. Definatly do Dunns River falls. It was the highlight of our trip. Don’t pay for the tour just climb it by yourself.

You will definatly want more clothes than just a carry-on. You will want skirts & dresses for dinners. Shorts, bathing suits, tank tops. etc… Bring a dress sweater (I always forget to, then I end up cold once the sun goes down).

We went to Couples Swept Away (Negril) and it was awesome.  Pack a lot of sunscreen and aloe (they charge an arm and a leg for it there).  Everything else was fully included.  Definately bring some dresses for dinner, don’t waste precious luggage space on towels – they should have them right on the beach.  We didn’t leave the resort (the crime rate made us a little uneasy) but there are plenty of ‘on resort’ things to do – I highly recommend the snorkeling and catamaran cruise if those are available at that location.

Have fun!

YAY! We are going to CSS as well! I cannot freakin wait! I read the reviews on trip advisor EVERY SINGLE DAY. It’s what keeps me going at work!!! I also read other reviews of Jamaica and other resorts just because sometimes people have good suggestions for what to bring and what to do that I havent seen on the tripadvisor reviews. I learned from mrs Mary Jane to bring a fly swatter because sometimes there are bugs in the room!

Make sure your FI/husband brings a pair of closed toe shoes – the Casanova restaurant requires them for men at dinner. I’ve also read to make your reservations for dinner pretty early on because sometimes they fill up quickly and then you are eating at like 9:00 at night.

Also, make sure you bring a bathing suit, change of clothes, sunscreen (small bottle) and a book in your carry on bag because I’ve read that sometimes the rooms are not ready when you get there. That way you can just go to the beach or get something to eat right away without having nothing to do!!! Also, dont forget a copy of your marriage license because you get a free couples massage in a hut overlooking the ocean!! And free champagne too 🙂

@coffeekitty: Youre very welcome!! Definitely go to the couples message boards that the PP posted – went there yseterday and there are some helpful things there! Apparently you should bring about $300 cash.

For Dunns River Falls you should try to get aqua socks (water shoes) because you are going to need something for climbing it. The Dunns River Falls trip is included in your stay at CSS. Also, read the trip advisor reviews – they are VERY helpful and even though there are some negative ones they will get you SO pumped!!
