The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.  There is an 89% survival rate for 5 years.
  • If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.
  • If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.
  • Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.

Six Discoveries about Jamaica

By: lola [at] lolastravels [dot] com

Aruba, Jamaica oooh I wanna take you… You know how the song goes. I wanna take you on a little quick trip to Jamaica with me. I love the Caribbean and decided this year I needed to see a bit more of it. So, on a snowy weekend in New England, I looked for the best deal I could find to get down to the Caribbean in March. Jamaica was the lucky winner and BOY I am so glad. I had always been curious about Jamaica but it wasn’t at the top of my must-see Caribbean islands. Now that I’ve been I’m really am not sure why that was. It is the perfect place for me. There you can find a little bit posh and a little bit rough around the edges – my favorite sort of destination. Here are six discoveries I had about Jamaica.

The safe way is using JUTA, MaxiTours or JCAL located at your hotel. If there are not available, then your next best way of transportation is a red plate route taxi. Check their windshield to make sure their vehicle is license and insured.
JUTA taxis and tours, MaxiTours and JCAL all should have JTB on their vehicles, which represent Jamaica Tourist Board licensed. These licensed and insured JTB vehicles are $3-$6 higher, but penny wise and pound foolish is not worth it in the end. The difference in cost is your safety insurance.
Bikes are NoNo.
Rent a car is okay, however, you don’t want to get in an accident. If you are at fault, you are going to pay through your noise. If the other vehicle is at fault and they are Jamaican, you can kiss any settlement go by. It will take years to settle.
Call your Montego Bay Airport to Negril driver first, if he or she is not available, they will send a license and insured taxi for you.
Enjoy your time in Negril! Relax! Be Safe!

Should We Rent a Car in Jamaica

Should we rent a car in Jamaica

By Antonio Airport Transfers and Tours

Many people send emails regarding this question, “Should we rent a car or hire a private car?”

Our answer is always “NO. You do not want to rent a car, unless you are an experience Jamaican driver”.

Why? Although we prefer guest to utilize our services, we know the danger of guest driving in Jamaica. Not only to themselves, but to others.

If you survive driving in Jamaica, congratulation. However, if you don’t then the cost of private car which is $60 – $100 one way for 2 people from Montego Bay airport to Negril, vs renting a car for $50 per day excluding insurance and taxes is not worth the probably result. We all know that it is cheaper, but at what cost?

Recently, Four guests car collides with a trailer. All four was killed and the driver of the trailer in stable condition. See www.jamaicagleaner.com for full story.
 
Therefore, we highly recommend that you don’t rent a car regardless of where you are staying, and where you want to go. Drive with one of the licensed taxi or tour operators and experience how the roads are handled. Driving on the left in Jamaica is very different than driving on the left in Europe. Jamaica has many turns and potholes. Driving on the island is a whole different experience.
 
Taxi and tours operators are widely available at a cost less than your life. So call any of the taxi and tours operators in Jamaica, and leave the driving to us!

Montego Bay Airport Transfer

In Montego Bay there are several taxis and tours operators, that transfer many people each day from Montego Bay airport to villas, hotels, resorts, private homes, cabins and cottages. So how do you know which ground transportation is the best? Or which one is safe? Or which one to trust? Which one paid their car insurance? Which one is license to transfer passengers?

Here are a few pointers:

Montego Bay Airport Taxi – Many people don’t want to be bothered with shopping around for a taxi when they arrive or before they arrive on the internet, so they clear custom in Jamaica, and go directly to the taxi stand and request a taxi to their destination. These guys are all licensed and insured to move incoming passengers to their various location. So what is the drawback? Their are very expensive, because they operator at the airport and must pay higher fees. Therefore, if you would like to support these operators, they are as qualified as any other operators.

Hotel/Airfare/Transportation – If you don’t mind waiting for others to arrive before the bus can leave, then this is the way to go. Here is the drawback. If you are the first to arrive, your wait can be very long. Since it is bundled with your airfare/hotel, it is very difficult to separate the cost. Therefore, unless you don’t mind paying the extra for private transfer, this is the best way to go. Note to those that say, “The hotel offers free transfer” Please. There are no free transfer between the airport and your hotel. It is bundled in the total (airfare and hotel ) cost.

Private Transfer – There are several private transfers that can be arranged in advance by phone, or via their  websites. These companies are competitors, but they all have the same things in common.

1) There are members of JUTA ( Jamaica Union of Travelers Association)  and they all are required to have vehicles certain years old, license with JTB (Jamaica Tourist Board), updated car insurance, and must have a red plate on their vehicles. Once you land in Jamaica you will see vehicles everywhere with JUTA on the front and the back of each vehicles with two letters and a numbers. The letters represent their chapter affiliation. Such as LC is Lucea Chapter, NC is Negril, and so forth. The number represent the next number available for membership.

2) These members are all independent contractors, and many of them have their own private airport transfer website business, apart from contracting with hotels through Montego Bay, Ocho rios, Falmouth, Lucea, and Negril JUTA chapter.  Then there are two other private membership. JCAL and MaxiTours

3) Many of the private internet businesses are listed on TripAdvisor, and they rely receiving great reviews from their customers.

4) All of these companies compete on price. Because all other services are constant.

So how do you choose which one is right for you? You shop around until you find one that meets your need and your personality. All the private transfers with JUTA, Maxitours and JCAL,  offers the same level of services, and all at the same price. Therefore, the next time you want a private transfer. Choose a company, asked other customers for their option, and go with your feelings. Chances are you will never go wrong.

Bob Marley Family – News

updated by: Antonio Airport Transfers and Tours – Negril

Bob Marley family launches “first world cannabis brand” as quoted below:

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-30110235

“The family of the late Jamaican reggae artist, Bob Marley has launched what they describe as the world’s first global cannabis brand.

It will be called Marley Natural and be used to sell cannabis-infused lotions, creams and various accessories.

The new brand is being developed with Privateer Holdings based in Washington state, stressing the life and legacy of Jamaica’s greatest cultural export.

It is intended to be sold in the US and possibly worldwide from next year.”

In Jamaica smoking marijuana border on illegal, although not a lot of emphasis is placed on smoking on your property. What is illegal is buying, selling and growing. Therefore, if you can smoke it, without buying, selling or growing it, then you might not have a lot of  problem with the law, especially if you only have a very small joint and smoking on your property.

Please note: We at Montego Bay Airport to Negril Taxi and Tours are not supporting nor condemning smoking marijuana. We are here to provide customer service, and one of our services is to inform our guest and our customers about news in  and about Jamaica.
