The Beautiful Island of Jamaica in Style…Once You Go, You Know!

Jamaica Overview June 29, 2009

   
Everyone knows Jamaica as the home of Bob Marley and as the honeymoon capital of the Caribbean, but there’s more to it than just reggae and romance! The third largest island in the Caribbean has everything – wonderful white-sand beaches, magnificent blue mountains, waterfalls, wildlife, grand old plantations and great coffee.

Jamaica is also famous for its outstanding all-inclusive resorts, most of which are virtually self-contained beachfront vacation villages with an abundant array of included amenities and dining options. Jamaica hotels come in all shapes and sizes from ultra-exclusive, award-winning resorts with gourmet cuisine, stunning pool-scapes and impeccable accommodations and service to lively hotels with high-energy “entertainment staffs” that will keep you hopping all day and night. You’ll find Jamaica hotels that cater to couples only; some that are designed with families and children in mind; and some that welcome all ages to just kick back and relax on the beach with a good book and an umbrella drink!

The main beach resort areas are Montego Bay, also known as Mo’Bay, Jamaica’s second largest city; Negril, boasting one of the longest beaches in the country with all the water sports you can imagine; Ocho Rios (Ochi), on the north shore, where you’ll find “the real Jamaica’ with picturesque fishing villages providing quieter retreats; and the South Coast offers a secluded and romantic hideaway.

The beautiful scenery, the wide variety of hotel choices, the friendly spirit of the people and, of course, the music…all contribute to Jamaica’s popularity and worldwide appeal.
