The sparkling gem of Jamaica
Nestled comfortably right in the middle of the Caribbean, Jamaica truly is a sparkling gem of an island that provides a welcome feeling of escape.
Jamaica is a kaleidoscope of beauty that makes one of the most precious jewels in the Caribbean. There’s an allure which keeps first time visitors coming back. It’s the home of reggae, home of jerk and home of Rastafarian. Jamaica has more attractions and things to do (175 in fact) than the rest of the Caribbean put together! And the array of wonderful attractions, sights and picturesque scenery makes it a perfect resort for families, couples, kids and groups of friends.
There’s more than meets the eye
When you think of Jamaica, you might think of beaches, bikinis, and sunshine. You’d be absolutely right, but there’s a whole world of wonder beyond the beach. With something for everyone, it’s just waiting to be discovered.
The famous Blue Mountains are a perfect example. If you’re feeling energetic, you can conquer these spectacular peaks with the added bonus of seeing Jamaica’s Blue Mountain coffee plantations, nestled into the hills 5,000ft above sea level. Those who make the 7,500ft hike to the peak are rewarded with breathtaking views of over a hundred miles.
Or, if you feel like something a bit more relaxing, why not take a bamboo raft down the scenic Martha Brae River, where you’ll experience the peaceful serenity of the Jamaican landscape.
Keeping with the water theme, why not dive into the deep end with a dip in Port Antonio’s 200ft deep Blue Lagoon. Or, you can head to Dunn’s River Falls and climb the stunning 600ft waterfall. One of Jamaica’s national treasures, it’s scattered with a series of miniature pools, providing the perfect place to relax as you make the leisurely climb to the top.
Families Love Jamaica
If you think a small island can’t pack a punch, you haven’t visited Jamaica. Their playful spirit, natural beauty and prolific history will be an enriching experience for the whole family. Whether you take the gang on a zip-lining through the rain forest , zooming down the mountains on a Jamaican bobsled or horse riding on the beach and even in the sea, there are numerous activities to ensure you’ll have the time of your life.
Families can enjoy a huge variety of activities such as river tubing and kayaking, 4×4 off-road safaris and those with a taste for heights can ride a chairlift to the top of Mystic Mountain.
Little explorers can visit the Kool Runnings Water Park which has 10 amazing water slides, one of several resort water parks. For more family fun, visit one of the Dolphin Cove locations and swim with the dolphins, sharks and stingrays.
With the friendliness and warmth of the locals, Jamaica is an escape from everyday life that you and your family will never forget.
Getting married in Jamaica
With its sapphire waters and white-sand beaches, Jamaica is one of the most romantic locations on earth. So it’s not hard to understand why so many couples choose the island as the backdrop to their special day.
Not only that, but it is incredibly easy to get married in Jamaica. Only 24 hours needs to have passed between arriving and walking down the aisle, and many resort hotels offer wedding packages so you can enjoy your day with ease. Plus, you can immediately start enjoying your honeymoon from the minute you say ‘I Do’ with a wide range of romantic attractions.
Unbeatable food and a friendly atmosphere
All of this physical activity isn’t without reward though. Whether the sun is up or down, there’s a world of wonderful food and friendly social scene to keep you entertained. Sample the world-famous, and experience authentic Jamaican rum. In fact, you can take the Appleton Estate Rum Tour and get an inside look at the 18th century style rum making process that’s still in use today.
Museums and music
Jamaica is known for its reggae music and understandably so. It’s the genre of music that echoes throughout the island in bars, restaurants and out on the street. Soak it up and drink it in. This is the home of Reggae, and Jamaicans aren’t shy about sharing their love of it.
A trip to Jamaica simply wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Bob Marley Museum located inside his former home. It’s the ultimate place to celebrate the life and music of the Father of Reggae, whose music resonates within the heart of every Jamaican.
Beautiful beaches and picturesque landscapes
Jamaica has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, so why not experience them in a slightly different way? Take a beach horse riding expedition that gives you the sheer feeling of freedom as you ride along the sand, and in the Caribbean Sea.
This is just a taste of the diverse experiences that Jamaica has to offer. Combined with the warmth and friendliness of the locals, it promises to be an escape from everyday life you’ll never forget.
