Best way to get from airport to Runaway Bay

We are headed to Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica in a couple weeks. What is the best way to get from MBJ airport to the resort? It will be two adults and two children (7-11). Do we take a taxi, the bus, or arraign a private van? Price is a factor but I am willing to pay a little more for convenience Thank-you.

Who are you using for your travel company? We usually just us the transportation from them. It's just easier!

Hi theklems

Check if your travel company has transport already included in your tickets. If it is, then why not use it? If this should be the case be prepared to wait for the coach to fill up and also accept that the coach may stop at other resorts to drop off other guests. Your travel time to the resort will be stretch out a bit.

If you want to get to the resort without hassle, then see the link below.


They are in Montego Bay and will be there waiting for you. They have a fleet of vehicle. They have drinks in the vehicle. You can tell them when you book, what drinks you want and they will have then for you. They will give you a phone to ring home if you ask.

I use them for transfer to the resort. By the time others arrive on the coach, I will have been to the pool and rested. I pay them on the net. That way I do not have to worry about arriving with money. I have again booked and paid them for my transfer 30th July 2011.

Hope you have a lovely journey and vacation.
