Major September events in Jamaica such as a world cup qualifying match against Costa Rica, a 5k marathon for charity, a week-long bridal show and a major beauty competition to promote tourism.
September is the beginning of a new school year, so you will notice fewer locals at attractions and events.
This is also the time to take advantage of cheap flights to Jamaica and low-priced hotels.
