Carnival in Jamaica 2015. Take a week off work. Its going to be JUST THAT GOOD!

As the renaissance starts to take shape for Jamaica carnival 2015 I want to make a suggestion.
Take 4 days vacation leave for carnival if you live in Jamaica and if you are coming from overseas stay for 10 days.

As a Jamaican you will get Easter Friday and Monday off and therefore only need vacation for Tuesday to carnival Friday.
As a foreigner you need to arrive Easter Friday and leave The Monday after carnival.

Carnival in Jamaica falls 2 short months after Trinidad carnival.
-if you missed Trinidad carnival it’s a perfect “make up” carnival shortly after to be enjoyed while your friends suffer their tabanca
– if you went to Trinidad it’s a fantastic way to both relive the memories via the music but to create new ones as the “road march” in Jamaica is a totally different, but incredibly enjoyable, experience.
-if you are Jamaican and just getting into carnival. Our carnival season is good enough to give you the feeling of euphoria every reveller craves.
