Most couples are used to classic dates such as dinner, drinks, or a movie. After thinking really hard, I came up with 30 ideas for romantic dates in Jamaica. These are separated by fun day-trips and date nights. All prices are listed in J$ and US$ and ranked from cheapest to most expensive for two persons.
Fun Daytime Activties
· Watch sunset by Lovers’ Leap, especially on Sundays which are complimented by the sweet strains of saxophone and live music. ($0)
· Take the Downtown Kingston Creative Artwalk together, which happens on the last Sunday of every month. ($0)
· Take a couples’ hike in the Blue Mountains. Get trail ideas here. ($0-400: US$ 3)
· Visit an off-the-beaten-path beach together for a secluded experience. There’s at least one in each parish. ($0-500: US$4)
