This friendly Caribbean nation is an island paradise that exudes culture at every corner. It’s the birthplace of reggae music and Bob Marley (the latter you can learn more about at the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston). In addition to culture, Jamaica boasts some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes: Interior-situated mountains sprout canopying rainforests with verdant trees; Ocho Rios’ pristine white-sand beaches invite those who seek relaxation; and Negril’s reef-abundant waters enchant snorkelers and scuba divers of all levels.
In addition to its thriving hotel scene, the island nation attracts gourmands of Caribbean cuisine by way of traditional dishes: Jerk Chicken and Jamaican Fish Tea (or Fish Soup) are just two of many. We recommend visiting from December to April, an ideal time for those seeking a less rainy forecast.
