If you choose to go on vacation with a group, you may also be able to get discounts on some packages that are designed with children in mind. Some of the best places to get these deals are at all inclusive hotels, such as Sandals Resorts and Beaches. However some of these hotels are not located in the capital of Jamaica and are found in other parts of the island, such as Ocho Rios.

If you are staying for several days with your family, it may be possible for you to save money by booking a two or three bedroom vacation condo in Kingston. This will also help you to save money with a large group. Pro Homes Ja is a good place to look for vacation rentals in Jamaica if you are based in the UK or Europe.

Hike the Blue Mountains
Hike the Blue Mountains in Jamaica with your family and enjoy the beauty of nature. Older children will definitely enjoy this one. However, this hike is not to be taken lightly. If you plan to participate in this hike when you come to Jamaica, you should prepare yourself physically before. It does get colder as you go higher up, so you should also dress in layers or carry a few items to help you stay warm.
