About Jamaica

Music is everywhere here. The chilled beats of reggae can be heard from small rum shacks, beach bars or just about anywhere you go in Jamaica. Many visitors never leave the comforts of their all-inclusive resorts on some gorgeous beaches here (and who can blame them), but if you want to discover Jamaica beyond the tourist resorts, it’s here for you. The island can be explored by hiring a car and going it on your own or you can get from A to B using the local taxis. There some great snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities in Jamaica or you can simply relax on the beaches around popular Negril, Treasure Beach or Montego Bay. For adventurous travellers, there are some great hiking opportunities through lush mountains. Don’t forget to try the delicious rum in Jamaica and the fantastic classic dish of jerked chicken.
