Nothing is a problem on this Island paradise where “Erethings’ Arie.” The place where reggae, romance, and the Caribbean sun come together. Jamaica gleams in technicolor, as lofty Blue Mountains spill onto grassy plains, shimmering white sand, and turquoise waters. Pioneers of the All-Inclusive vacation concept, you wont find an island that does it better!!!
Why is Jamaica perfect for any vacation occasion?? Here is but a few of my favorite reasons:
1. Non-Stop flight times from several major gateways: Cincinnati, JFK, St. Louis and others
2. The average daily temperature runs between 73 - 89 degrees
3. Hospitality : This island pours into their tourism industry, having vocational degrees for those who want to major in hospitality and it shows in everything they do. “Tis my pleasure Sir/Madam” is a common phrase behind every service provided
Jamaica hot spots for vacations include:
Montego Bay: This place has it all… from a modern International airport to 5 championship Golf courses to boutique and luxury resorts. Visit the Hip Strip, the Rose Hall Great House, and raft down the Martha Brae.
Negril: The “Capital of Casual,” located on the western tip of the island and features the white sands of Seven Mile Beach. Cruise along the coastline to Rick’s Cafe’ to watch the cliff divers and the incredible sunset.
Runaway Bay: Runaway Bay is the ideal place to bask in the Culture of Jamaica. Visit Nine Mile (the birthplace of Bob Marley,) ReggaeXplosion, and Seville Heritage Park to get the full Jamaican experience.
Ocho Rios: Located in the center of the island’s long north coast, Ocho Rios is particularly noted for its Waterfalls (including the world-famous Dunn’s River Falls,) Beaches, gardens and Fern Gullies.
Jamaica is the largest English-speaking island in the Caribbean
Jamaica is the first Caribbean country to gain independence
Jamaica is the 3rd largest island in the Caribbean.
Dreadlocks: The ever popular hairstyle sported worldwide isnt a fashion fad among the Jamaicans and Rastafarians. The style symbolizes acts of faith, politics, revolution, peace, and freedom.
The most popular Jamaican cuisine is “Jerk,” an Allspice which comes from a dark brown berry that suggests flavors of clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Jerk dishes can be made from chicken, pork, or beef.
For such a small country compared to the US, Russia, and China, Jamaicans perform quite well in athletics. While the most popular local sport is actually cricket, track & field stands in the spotlight during international contests. Usaine Bolt currently is the fastest human on the Planet!!!
