Jamaica the ultimate escape
Nestled in the middle of the Caribbean, Jamaica truly is a sparkling island gem providing a welcome feeling of escape.
Jamaica is much more than beaches, bikinis and sunshine, offering a whole world of wonder beyond the beach with something for everyone waiting to be discovered.
The famous Blue Mountains are a perfect example. If you’re feeling energetic, you can conquer these spectacular peaks with the added bonus of seeing Jamaica’s Blue Mountain coffee plantations, nestled into the hills 5,000ft above sea level. Those who make the 7,500ft peak are rewarded with breathtaking views of over a hundred miles.
Or, if you feel like something more relaxing, why not take a bamboo raft down the scenic Martha Brae River? Here you’ll experience the peaceful serenity of the Jamaican landscape. Or why not dive into the deep end with a dip in Port Antonio’s 200ft deep Blue Lagoon? Or why not head to one of Jamaica’s national treasures, Dunn’s River Falls, and climb the stunning 600ft waterfall? It’s scattered with a series of miniature pools, providing the perfect place to relax as you climb to the top. All of this activity isn’t without reward. When the sun goes down, there’s a world of food and nightlife to keep you entertained. Sample the world famous Jamaican Jerk Chicken and experience authentic Jamaican Rum.
In fact, you can take the Appleton Estate Rum Tour and get an inside look at the 18th century-style rum making process that’s still in use today.
A trip to Jamaica simply wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Bob Marley Museum located inside his former home. It’s the ultimate place to celebrate the life and music of the Father of Reggae, whose music resonates throughout the island in bars, restaurants and out on the street. This is the home of Reggae, and Jamaicans aren’t shy about sharing their love of it.
This is just a taste of the diverse experiences that Jamaica has to offer. Combined with the warmth and friendliness of the locals, it promises to be an escape from everyday life that you’ll never forget.
