We didn’t use the phone function of our phones while in Jamaica (Tower Isle for us). We used the wifi functions as they were free. We sent app messages and emails to family and Skyped twice. You don’t need adapters or Jamaican currency unless you just want to. Also, Couples resorts doesn’t allow you to tip their personal employees so you will only need to tip people at the airport or during excursions. I highly recommend looking into Club MoBay at the airport if you haven’t. Some people say it was a waste of money for them, but if your plane is scheduled to arrive at the same time as multiple other planes then it’s totally worth it. It kept us from waiting 2 hours in Customs. It’s also nice having someone waiting to guide you as soon as you get off the plane. If you have any more questions don’t hesitate to ask!

Check with your carrier to find out about your phone, many carriers have some type of international plan.  I usually text when I’m there, its free with my carrier.  At the airport there are phones you can rent if you think you really need to.  I would change some money, it makes it easier if you want to buy something, you won’t have to stand their doing calculations in your head or get short changed.  Have fun!

Yes Club MoBay is a waiting lounge that has complimentary drinks (alcohol too) and snacks. They meet you literally at the gate with a sign and take you through everything including getting your bags and through customs. We hadn’t travelled internationally before so it was a huge stress relief knowing we’d be taken care of. We purchased ours straight through Couples, but you can purchase it straight through their website or a travel agent. As far as the transfer you’ll check in at the Couples Lounge at the airport and they’ll come get you when your bus arrives. Even if you don’t use Club MoBay you’ll be taken care of by the people in the Couples lounge the minute you get there. I encourage you to read the message boards on the Couples website if you havent already. Its a great source of information and helped me feel like I knew what to expect every step along the way.
