The small island-nation of Jamaica is one of the more popular tourist destinations in the Caribbean. It is home to many of the more well-known Caribbean resorts where many travelers book all-inclusive vacations, but for those who want to get beyond that there is a strong and unique culture in Jamaica which comes out more when you leave the all-inclusive resorts. This is good news, because while many of the big resorts are relatively expensive, there are also options for cheap hotels in Jamaica for the rest of us.
Where you start looking for your cheap hotels in Jamaica depends very much on where you want to settle yourself. The island may not be huge, but the main cities have different personalities and it is worth investigating each one to make sure you will be based in one you like. Kingston is the capital and largest city, and it is where you will find several worthwhile tourist attractions as well as lots of great night clubs. Montego Bay is where most foreign tourists go, so it is well-equipped to cater to tourists (which can be a good and bad thing, depending on what you are looking for). Negril has the same kinds of beautiful beaches as Montego Bay, but fewer people and a more relaxed atmosphere. Once you find the city that matches the kind of holiday you want to have, you can begin looking for budget hotels.
