Tourist Destinations in Jamaica

Jamaica, dubbed the "birthplace of reggae," is a treasure trove of natural wonders with a vibrant African flavor. The island's excellent assets include golden beaches, lush, green mountains, blue oceans, coral reefs, jungles, and rivers.

In Jamaica, nature enthusiasts will find a plethora of activities. Hike through the jungle and view birds, or dive and snorkel among the bordering reefs. Jamaica's many ancient plantations, where you can sample tropical fruits and explore the big old homes, are also well-known. You'll also find some of the most luxurious all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean here.

Montego Bay is one of the most popular vacation cities in the Caribbean. The island's main cruise ship port is Ocho Rios, and Negril is known for its long, languid beach bordered with turquoise waters and coconut palms. Because of its proximity to the magnificent Blue Mountains, ecotourists adore Port Antonio.

There's also reggae, of course. You can tour reggae legend Bob Marley's former house and explore the city's museums and historic landmarks in Kingston, Jamaica's edgy capital.
