Jamaica: A taste of island life  for tourists

Besides the beaches and old plantation houses, the region offers possibilities for birdwatching and river rafting on bamboo rafts.

Your dream all-inclusive vacation in Jamaica awaits: frolic on Jamaican beaches, get carried away by the smooth sway of reggae, surrender to “island time”, and fall in love with the country’s mountains and sea, architecture and culture, and friendly, colourful people.

Jamaica for families

Family resorts include beautiful beaches that both kids and adults alike can enjoy. But don’t pass up the chance to go splashing in the impressive Dunn’s River Falls (near Ocho Rios) or the more gentle YS Falls, located close to Negril. Visit beautifully stewarded parks with your children and discover the flora and fauna of this unique island paradise.

Jamaica is for lovers too

Negril’s beach—renowned for its magnificent sunsets—offers couples a romantic and idyllic setting along 10 kilometres of gorgeous white sand (including a dedicated stretch for nudists). You may also consider an excursion to the southwest side of the island, which, despite being less developed, is very intimate.

Going out and about

Many restaurant options in Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Negril offer enough variety to please every palate. These areas also come alive at night, as bars and nightclubs fill with the sounds of reggae and dancehall music. A must for any tourist: Rick’s café in Negril, where cliff jumping into crystalline waters is one of the top reasons to go.

For the sports fanatic

For many, an all-inclusive vacation means total relaxation, but Jamaica has other, more thrilling options, too. How about a Jeep safari to explore the Black River area? Or a hike to discover the mountainous landscapes of the renowned Blue Mountains? Divers inevitably marvel at the treasures under Jamaica’s blue waters, while golfers relish the 18-hole course at the historic Rose Hall Plantation.
