Firstly, you need to learn about the climate and make enough preparations for it. Try to familiarize yourself completely before you start packing your bags. Even in the coldest months, temperatures here go as up as 70 and may go down to 60s at night. So, you need not carry your woolens to Jamaica.

You can’t even visit somewhere between May-September, the index of UV rays are considered extreme, so you will need lots and lots of sunscreen.
Then you will also need to take care of the entry requirements. All U.S. citizens travelling to Jamaica need a proof of return as well as passport. In case, you wish to extend your stay here, you need to get in touch with Jamaican consulate or Embassy and get a study or work visa prior leaving United States. Once you land in Jamaica, you wouldn’t need any documents while travelling from one city to other. Another thing that one must take care of is Drug laws.
Jamaica has very strict laws related to drugs including those who sell or may possess marijuana. The authorities here completely reserve the right to search all passengers leaving the country for drugs. In case, you are leaving Ocho Rios through a ship, you will still be searched by authorities. You can easily be imprisoned for carrying any kind of drugs. So, keep your bags clean while you are there and never ever carry anything back while you are leaving. In case, you are walking through streets of South A3, be careful, as these landscapes are used by farmers for growing marijuana. Make sure you stay on road and not wander around. There are several private bus and taxi services you can take to visit all recommended places in the city.
