    This is a silly question but does anyone know if there is air conditioning on the buses that transfer you from the airport to the hotel? Did most people go with the included transfer or book their own for their group?

      We booked private transfers with Lee's Tours for us & our guests. Their buses were air conditioned. I would think that since its so hot in JA that most buses would be. But then again, you never know!

        We took the transfer that was included in the package. It's a huge bus with enough space. Air conditioner was working full tilt which was good. Transfers don't seem as long as they actually are because you are looking at the scenery.

          Here's what I wrote about our transfer in my review--NIGHTMARE!!


          Our transfer was included with our package and was through Tourwise Limited. It was AWFUL!! They must contract out to local drivers, as the van they packed us in did not have their logo. My husband and I had to sit in the super hot van (it was 90 degrees and humid out) at the airport with one other couple for about ten minutes until other people came to fill the van. By the time they crammed nine of us in there, the luggage was so high, it was stacked to the ceiling and you couldn’t see out. My dress literally was scrunched into a corner. The tiny little A/C vent in the front did nothing to cool us in the back. I started to feel claustrophobic and began to feel very sick. We made two stops on the way which made me very mad. I was actually crying at the first stop when I got out due to the heat and closed quarters—I didn’t think I could pull myself together to get back in that awful thing. My clothes were soaked through with sweat. The couple that was in the front graciously gave us their seats so that I could sit by the vent. By the time the driver stopped the second time, we all just wanted to get to the hotel, and most of us just stayed in the van. The driver obviously gets a kickback for taking us to his friend’s chicken hut for a $4 bottle of Red Stripe. The return trip was a bigger van with the Tourwise logo and was much better, but still dirty.

            Sure, most of the buses who deals with visitors are well equipped and are very nice. Hold on to your seats they are very fast...
