When my sister first told me she was having a destination wedding, beyond the initial excitement my mind went directly to how expensive it would be. I am a budget traveler and really like to make the most out of my money and time. When I saw the total price (flight & accommodation) of 3 days in Jamaica in April was close to the equivalent of my 2 week trips to Africa & Europe, my penny-pinching heart cringed. I know there are definitely ways to go to Jamaica for cheaper, but when there is a specific date and venue already chosen it limits your options. So naturally, given the amount of money I was spending, I made plans to do as much as possible during my stay!
