“Karin has lived on Jamaica for 23 years, and I doubt there is anyone better suited to arrange the perfect trip through this beautiful island. If you’re considering a trip to Jamaica, I’d say: get in touch with Karin and I’m sure you’ll have great time!”
Patricia – October 2016
We spent a week driving across the island. From Montego Bay to Ocho Rios, to Port Antonio. Through the island’s inland to Black River, and finishing off in Negril. What a beautiful, green country, tropical surroundings, beautiful beaches and waterfalls, and such friendly people. We only had 9 days – that would be my only complaint! But at least now we get to go back sometime!
Annemiek & Mari Pepels – August 2016
We just returned home from a great trip through Jamaica, organized by Better Places. An organization that designs a travel proposal based entirely on your wishes. A wonderful concept, and we ended up better off than if we had booked everything on our own. Karin, the Dutch-born tour operator, was available for any questions we had prior to departure, and during our time on Jamaica. We really appreciated this. Travellers can choose from a wide range of activities, and receive lots of information and driving directions about the activities. A lot of possibilities but also a lot of freedom. We had a great time and saw and experienced so much. Would definitely recommend!
Reg van Steen – July 2016
Karin has lived on Jamaica for 23 years, so there’s no one better suited to advise on the ultimate Jamaica road trip. In consultation with us, she chose the best destinations for our trip, which we would have never been able to come up with on our own. A couple of places, like Geddes House and Blue Ridge, were truly unforgettable. We had one small issue with our rental car GPS, but this was perfectly and swiftly resolved by Karin – so really no complaints from our side. If you’re considering a trip to Jamaica, I’d say: get in touch with Karin and I’m sure you’ll have great time! Don’t hesitate!
Isabel – March 2016
We had a great trip with Better Places. In just a week, we travelled across the island and stayed in small-scale hotels in some beautiful locations. Everything was perfectly arrange and we got to see some very special places – thanks to Karin, the travel expert who’s lived in Jamaica for more than 20 years. We were especially impressed by the friendly people, the relaxed atmosphere and the luscious, green vegetation. Even though the beaches are beautiful, our tip is to make sure you see more of the island – Port Antonio and the Blue Mountains especially.
