Jamaica Backpacking

The increasing demand to explore countries like Jamaica as a backpacker means that there are places to stay across the island. The Hollywell National Recreation Park and Clydesdale, and Whitefield Hall Hostel in Saint Thomas, offer conventional hostel accommodation for backpackers in Jamaica, but there are plenty of guesthouses bargains to be found across the island, too. With prices ranging anywhere between €12 and €33 a night between off-peak and peak, even the most remote areas in Jamaica cater to the backpacker. The cheapest way to get around Jamaica is by bus, which can be slow but it is a good way to get to the countryside, meet locals and see a side of the island you may not as a conventional tourist.
