By Evelyn Walls

When it is freezing cold outside, quite a few of us would hanker to be somewhere else, most likely a place that is warm and tropical. No wonder those of us who are able to would go to a tropical paradise like Jamaica. Before you gear up and pack your bags, read on in this article on what to do to find a Jamaica family resorts all inclusive package.

There is still much confusion when it comes to the term all inclusive. Even seasoned travelers can still misunderstand what it really means. It basically means that the price includes alongside the accommodation, the provision and consumption of food and drinks. Recent changes to what it means have come in the way of what is additionally included, such as the use of basic facilities like swimming pools, beach umbrellas or cottages, basketball courts and such. Higher end amenities such as jet skis, wakeboards, surfboards, parasailing and such are not included.

Not all are fans of the all inclusion package simply because too many people avail of it. Thus if too many avail of it, it will mean a more crowded place for you and a less relaxing one at that. If you want to avoid crowded conditions it is best to get advanced information and research first into resorts that are not so crowded despite the great and attractive deals.

Cost savings and cost cutting on a budget are the great advantages of an all inclusive package stay. However, this is only valid up to a point. It is only valid if you are staying in the resort where the cost of food and drinks are included and thus virtually free. The advantage disappears when you go out of the resort or step off of it, especially when you go on side trips or excursions. Examine your planned activities beforehand so as to minimize costs and maximize advantages.

The northern part of the island of Jamaica is where you have a concentration of high quality and high class resorts. Specifically they can be found in the areas of Negril, Lucea, Ocho Rios and Montego Bay. Thus if you choose resorts in this area then do prepare to have a bit of travel time when landing at Kingston, which is all the way down south.

Depending on what season time of year you go will affect the amount of money you will save. Going to the island on the months of June to September will be the cheapest, but this is also when the season for hurricanes begins. Going on the months of January to end March may be the most expensive as these are reggae and festival months. It is thus suggested that the best time to go will be on the months of October towards December when the hurricane season begins to weaken and end.

To have a great vacation to Jamaica entails you do your homework first. Try to gather as much information as possible beforehand and plan your trip well. Look in forums and travel sites to avoid the mistakes and wrong decisions made by others.

In so keeping with planning with a good vacation, hopefully this article has been of help in providing you with a little heads up in what to do. Remember that information is the difference between a good and a bad vacation.
