We live in Victoria BC and love love love Jamaica 3rd trip in September!
Ah TandJ I just had a stroke when looking at the price of air out of Seattle as opposed to Victoria and found it's $1000 cheaper then I was horrified to see the difference in flight times! You guys are there in 11 or so hours. We have to suffer through 24 hours of travel but it's worth it. I think for our next trip we will fly out of SEA way cheaper and less travel time!
We live about 20-miles north east of Seattle and we will be going to CN in November for our 6th year in a row. The travel to and from is very long, but very much worth it. We generally go for 10-days, but this time we are going for 12-days. Can't wait to get there!!!!!
We have! We go almost every year. This year will be 12th time. We generally try to go for at least two weeks (sometimes to 2 of the resorts) since the flight is so long. Hawaii is a lot closer, but Jamaica is home :-).
TandJ victoria is beautiful, we love it here. Unfortunately by loving on an island you have to deal with the ferry which adds a couple of hours, then depending on weather and time of year you may need to overnight because ferries are notorious to cancel sailing or breakdown. Then fly out of Vancouver to Toronto and down to Jamaica. So if we have to over night in Vancouver it usually works out to 36 hours of travel! Yet when we arrive we don't sleep and jump right into the ocean lol!
We are about 60 miles northeast of Los Angeles in a city named Palmdale and can't wait for our second trip to CN coming up June!!!! We've done all the Hawaiian islands, even got married on one but Jamaica is home...
What type of flight do you do? Daughter is going from there and looked at travel times, looks like Fri. night departure and get there Sat. midday. Is that what you usually do? How long before you get on Jamaican time? Or are you jet lagged for a couple of days?
Wow look at everyone form the West coast going in September! I laugh when people say it's rainy their rainy season, I wish our rainy season was as warm! I hear ya regarding the price of flights it's criminal!
Hi Micaela&Daniel, Hubby and I are displaced Oregonians who now live in Orlando! We miss Oregon, but it is way easier to go "home" to Jamaica from Orlando rather than from the City of Roses! Have a great trip in September!:-)
We are from Washington and MAN that trip out there is long. but worth every single minute. Sure, you're a little tired the day you get there. who cares! youre on vaca!! We just forced ourselves to stay awake that first night for a while so we could adjust faster. There is always something going on so its certainly not hard to stay entertained.
Hi SuzyQ! Yes, I certainly believe it is easier to get back "home" from Orlando...last year we went to Maui instead of Jamaica because it is SO much closer! Luckily JetBlue now has a red eye out of PDX to JFK and then down to Montego Bay...much cheaper and more convenient than our other options. Happy travels!
