amaica is the third largest is­land in the Caribbean and lies just south of Cuba. This is an is­land that boasts some­thing for ev­ery­one with hun­dreds of miles of un­spoilt, quiet beaches and a colour­ful cul­tural and cos­mopoli­tan her­itage. Ja­maica is widely con­sid­ered to have the most stun­ning land­scapes to ex­plore. Vis­i­tors are drawn to Ja­maica for its beaches, grand ho­tels, su­perb all-in­clu­sive re­sorts and laid-back inns. Most are im­pressed with the sounds of reg­gae,




the taste of jerk cook­ing and the warm, friendly smiles of the lo­cals. Add to this, sev­eral world­class golf cour­ses, charm­ing old plan­ta­tion houses and tiny vil­lages dot­ted through the ma­jes­tic Blue Moun­tains, (where they grow the best cof­fee in the world), all in a re­laxed at­mos­phere and you’re jam­min! This is just a taste of the di­verse ex­pe­ri­ences Ja­maica has to of­fer. Com­bined with the warmth and friend­li­ness of the lo­cals, it’s an es­cape from ev­ery­day life you’ll never for­get.
