Jamaica is very different from the rest of the Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean, yes there is the glorious year-round sunshine, sandy beaches and pampered resort-life but what sets Jamaica apart is its history and culture. Embrace the island's unique character, the easy-going charm of its people and explore its jungle-clad mountains, breathtaking waterfalls and cosmopolitan cities to really enjoy the entire Jamaican experience. Its heritage has deep and colourful roots and visitors can see the very best of Jamaican culture in the lively resort of Montego Bay, where you will find a wide selection of restaurants, plenty of watersports and some great nightlife. Ocho Rios, a picturesque and lively resort with the spectacular Dunn's River Falls and the more relaxed, quiet area of Negril are just some of the places well worth a visit.
Take it all in There's plenty to see in Jamaica if sitting on the stunning beaches and enjoying the ocean views is not for you. Take a visit to the tropical rainforests, the famous Blue Mountains, botanical gardens and amazing waterfalls and don't forget to find time to visit the museum and home of music legend, Bob Marley.
