Holidays to Jamaica

Jamaica is one of the most popular islands in the Caribbean. Not only does it boast pristine beaches and crystal waters, but it also comes with a side serving of laid-back reggae beats. Even more, away from the beaches, visitors will find a sublime mix of hidden waterfalls, banana plantations and soaring mountains. It’s the perfect mix of beach and party, with activities for both families and couples.

Our Jamaica holidays and all inclusive package deals are full of reggae and rum, it’s a stimulating mix. Jamaica has captivated travellers for centuries. Visitors love Jamaica for its natural beauty - the cool peaks of the Blue Mountains; mile after mile of lush cane fields; picturesque rum estates; rivers and waterfalls; caves, beaches and lagoons. Slip and slide down the Dunns River Falls with their rich foliage of ginger lilies and breadfruit trees, rush through the rainforest canopy on an exhilarating zip-wire or watch divers plunge fearlessly from the cliffs at Negril into spectacular blue seas. So what's stopping you?? Book your holidays to Jamaica today.

Detailed Overview

Jamaica in detail

From the glorious glow of its sunsets to the unique and engaging ways of its people, its alluring white sandy beaches, lush green mountains and sparkling waterfalls - these stunning features can inspire the poet in anyone. The beauty of this island paradise has drawn visitors for centuries.

Historically, it was the wealthy few who were privileged to enjoy the unspoilt tropical delights of Jamaica, but today the northern and western coastlines of the island are stacked with tourist resorts and 'all-inclusive' hotels. Natural attractions have been commercialised to cope with the crowds, but somehow this commercialisation has not spoiled Jamaica. It still presents a magnificent kaleidoscope of colour and beauty that makes holidaymakers sad to leave, and vow to return.

Jamaican Attractions

The island's holiday attractions extend far beyond the stretches of Negril's famous Seven Mile Beach. Among the many great things to see and do in Jamaica, there are destinations such as Kingston's Bob Marley Museum and Spanish Town, or the Montego Bay Marine Park and Rose Hall (said to be haunted by beautiful Annie Palmer, the 'White Witch of Rose Hall').

In Ocho Rios, visit Dolphin Cove and Dunn's River Falls, or explore the Green Grotto Caves. Fans of the movie Blue Lagoon will find the actual site near Port Antonio, while rum enthusiasts will enjoy the Appleton Rum Estate on Jamaica's South Coast. Jamaica's Blue Mountains have some exciting hiking trails for the adventurous, and there are caves and waterfalls to explore as well.

All this sightseeing is made more enjoyable by year-round good weather and visitors should prepare for the glorious tropical heat by bringing plenty of sun cream.
