10 Reasons to Say I Do at Tensing Pen

Jamaica is known for its ever-tropical climate, gorgeous white beaches and lush canopy. What better place to have a destination wedding? The island resonates a romantic atmosphere, welcoming couples looking for passion, luxury and adventure

The selections are endless when it comes to choosing where to get married, but Jamaica has certain qualities that makes it stand out from the rest. Here are a few reasons why you and your fiancé should say your vows in this tropical wonderland.

1.Natural Wonders

Tourists typically travel to Jamaica to dive into the crystal-clear water, swim with marine life in the reefs, and marvel at the vast sea from the limestone cliffs. However, the Caribbean Sea isn’t the only natural wonder to see, the island is home to many mountain peaks tall enough to see both coasts of the island from. The beautiful scenery will create a stunning natural backdrop for your Big Day.

2.Perfect Climate

Jamaica is known to only have one season: summer. Because it’s located in the tropics, Jamaicanever sees a real autumn or winter. Though it is a popular destination year-round, the best time to visit is typically January through March. During this time, expect to see sunny skies and temperatures ranging from 75°F to 85°F with a consistent ocean breeze to cool you down.

3.No Jet Lag

Flying to Jamaica from Florida takes just an hour and a half. If your guests are coming from the Northwest, they’ll have a little lengthier flight of about 7 hours.
