Welcome to Jamaica

From the open-air markets and colonial landmarks in Kingston and Montego Bay to the laid-back vibe on Negril's Seven Mile Beach, Jamaica something to suit every traveler's style. Vacation in true Caribbean fashion by lounging on the miles of beaches along the Ocho Rios coastline. You'll want to take breaks to taste some local rum, sip a Red Stripe, sample some famous Blue Mountain coffee, or dig into a plate of traditional jerk chicken. The entire azure coastline offers myriad opportunities to swim and snorkel among the coral reefs and the abundance of marine life. A tour guide is the best way to gain insight into the island's musical history, with a visit to the Bob Marley Museum or even Marley's hometown, Nine Mile. Adventure-seekers can take their pick of activities such as ziplining through the jungle canopy; white-water rafting down the Black River; climbing the terraced Dunn's River Falls; hiking to the top of Blue Mountain; or spelunking in one of the many limestone caves that dot the island nation. Don't miss a visit to the Luminous Lagoon, one of the few places in the world where the conditions are just right for swimming and boating in a bioluminescent bay lit up by tiny, harmless dinoflagellates.
