Get Jamaican $'s once there.

As far as things to do, it's depends what you'd like to see or do. There are all sorts of different things to do around the island.

I would also recommend taking an official tour guide to take you around. I can recommend Ricardo Riley highly.

His Email address is ricardoriley1984@yahoo.com and his telephone number is 1-876-471-5961. He is an official tour guide.

If you decide to shop around, make sure the tour guide is an official one by asking for a photograph of them standing next to their car which also shows their license plate and Official JTB Sticker in their car window. Only official Tour Guides are allowed to take people from overseas. If anyone who isn't official takes you and they get stopped, I believe there is a fine involved, but am not sure if it is the customer that pays for the fine or the driver, and you will be asked to leave the car, and you may be either escorted back to where you started or be left stranded.
