Jamaica travel checklist

Jamaica travel checklist

Packing for a Jamaica vacation is very important. The Jamaica travel checklist is a must.

One important packing tip, if traveling to Jamaica with a companion or spouse, divide your checked items into two (or more) suitcases and build two separate Jamaica checklists.

That way, if one is lost, you will both have some clothing to wear. Also, be sure to carry-on anything that you cannot live without in Jamaica for a couple of days (or more), just in case your luggage is lost or delayed.

Use the following Jamaica travel checklist as a starter and modify it for your personal tastes.
