Jamaica Travel Guide

  • Vacations to the Dominican Republic: a dream destination for beach goers

    As flights to Jamaica descend, travellers see where the mountains and the sea come together.

    Influenced by Britain, Spain, Asia and Africa, it’s impossible to travel to Jamaica without sampling the jerk cuisine or taking in some reggae, the island’s official sound.

Discover Jamaica

 
  • Montego Bay

    Montego Bay’s luminescent lagoon attracts tourists from far and wide. Tourists have fun shopping at the local markets or in upscale duty free shops. For avid golfers, the 18-hole course located on Rose Hall Plantation is a must.

  • The Blue Mountains

    The famous Blue Mountains in Jamaica attract lovers of beautiful landscapes. The steep slopes offer breathtaking views, to the delight of hikers. And at the foot of these mountains is Kingston, Jamaica's capatial.
  • The beaches of Jamaica

    In Negril, furthest to the west, the sun beats down along the white sand beaches for more than 7 miles. It’s a beautiful spot to watch the sunset. And because it’s still relatively underdeveloped, it offers a very attractive kind of casualness not found on other parts of the island.

  • Culture and attractions

    Montego Bay’s Georgian style buildings spoil architectural enthusiasts. South of Ocho Rios, ecotourists can admire the gardens of Shaw Park and River Coyaba. And in Negril, Rick's Café invites daredevils to cliff dive. All three cities have restaurants for all tastes, as well as flamboyant nightlives.
