Jamaica- Come back to the Vibe
Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean and lies just south of Cuba. This is an island that boasts something for everyone – with every type of accommodation, 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 not only for its scenery, its beaches, grand hotels, superb all-inclusive resorts and laid-back inns, but because there is so much more to do there.
Jamaica boasts more attractions (169) than the rest of the Caribbean put together. Soft adventure lovers and thrill-seekers are in heaven in this part of the Caribbean.
Thrill-seeking families can enjoy fantastic activities with adventure companies such as Chukka Caribbean Adventures, offering river tubing and kayaking, 4×4 off-road safaris and even a Jamaican dog-sled experience complete with local rescue dogs.
The fun doesn’t stop there, as those with a taste for heights can ride to the top of Mystic Mountain on the Rainforest Sky Explorer before flying through the tree tops on the Rainforest Zip-line Tranopy. And if that’s not enough, a pulse-quickening bobsleigh ride that races through the forest ‘Cool Runnings’ style, with only a handbrake for comfort, is an absolute must.
Relax the pace on horseback through some of Jamaica’s most scenic and historic areas before the guides unsaddle the horses for an exhilarating sea ride. Yes, horse riding in the Caribbean Sea!
Although Jamaica is known for her chilled atmosphere, the sounds reggae, the taste of jerk cooking and the warm, friendly smiles of the locals make you realise that this is an authentic destination, not designed but grown naturally. Add to this, several world-class 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!
