Under $100 / Caribbean

There are many activities available on the island of Jamaica, ranging from zip lining through the forest and partying with locals to swimming with dolphins or lounging on the beach.

Grab a quick, free breakfast from your hotel and begin your day. Set up a rafting adventure on Martha Brae with one of the many companies available. Prices average $20–30 a person so shop around to get a good deal. The rafting trip is an hour-long ride through the stunning area on a bamboo raft. Feel free to jump into the water before or after the ride.

For lunch, go to The Pelican. This restaurant boasts of being a favorite among the locals and has many traditional Jamaican foods available. Lunch is cheaper than dinner so this shouldn’t cost more than $15.

For the rest of the afternoon, relax on Montego Bay’s most famous beach, Doctor’s Cove. The admission price is $6. Bring a towel along with you to lie on the beach and soak up the sun. There is snorkeling equipment available for rent.

After the beach, grab some famous Jamaican jerk chicken from Scotchies. This restaurant is well known. The meal should cost around $25.

To keep the fun going, go to Rose Hall Plantation and sign up for one of the haunted night tours. If you order tickets online, they will be $18 instead of the usual $20.
