It’s Travel Tuesday! Looking for a vacation or staycation? Jamaica is a magnificent place to Eat, Play and Stay!
Jamaica has some of the most delicious food in the world. Just think of rum, jerk, Blue Mountain coffee, ackee & saltfish, sweet potato pudding, rice & peas, turned cornmeal, dukunno, escoveitch fish, mackerel run dung, roast yam, pepper shrimps and roast breadfruit. Click on the image below – or here – to find out interesting facts about each of these.
If you like the beach, we have lots on every coast. Negril in Westmoreland, Doctor’s Cave in Montego Bay, St. James, Silver Sands in Trelawny, Treasure Beach in St. Elizabeth, Frenchman’s Cove in Portland are just a few of the most famous ones. If you want to do more than lie on the beach (which is plenty fun), you can do water sports, swim with the dolphins, climb water falls, or go rafting on the rivers.
One of the best things about Jamaica is that there is something for everyone. So if sea and sand are not for you, rest assured there’s lots more to do. You can check out the beautiful hills of St. Andrew, or play sports like golf and tennis, or take a tour or two – plantation tours, nature reserves, museums (like the Bob Marley museum), galleries or dine on a pirate ship or explore caves or take in a festival – music, food, arts or check out a play, nightclub, bar, or restaurant. There are hundreds of attractions that cater to a wide variety of interests.
With more than 26,000 rooms in the island, Jamaica offers a wide variety of accommodation options. According to the Jamaica Tourist Board
Jamaica has a number of hotels, large and small. These vary from high rises to hotels in elegant old world style, and small modern hotels. The hotels offer a range of plans with dining and recreation options from All-inclusives to European Plans. Many cater to specific niche needs of groups and meetings, families, couples or sport/adventure.
There are also villas, apartments and guesthouses. These intimate small-scale properties provide visitors with greater opportunities to “create their own vacation”. The offerings include a combination of self catering and/or bed and breakfast facilities and provide viable options for the discerning traveller.
