Enjoying Jamaica Vacations
Having long been considered one of the world’s top vacation destinations, Jamaica – and Jamaica vacations – provides everything from pristine beaches, to gorgeous golf courses to a lively and vibrant nightlife.
The independent traveler can certainly piece together a pleasant trip to the island. However, by tapping into the resources available to a travel agent, either in person or on-line, any traveler is ensured good accommodations, reasonable airfare, and a minimum of problems.
Where to go in Jamaica
There are many enjoyable locations to visit on Jamaica, beginning with the international airport at Montego Bay. Here you can find wonderful beaches, reggae, and a number of historic sites. If you are planning a longer stay, a comprehensive Jamaica travel package should include visits to:
Runaway Bay – Jamaica was once at the center of the slave trade one leg of the lucrative triangular trade route. Runaway Bay received its name because slaves used it as an escape point in fleeing their terrible existence. Here you can also visit the birthplace of Bob Marley.
Ocho Rios – Home to spectacular waterfalls and lush tropical wildlife, it also sports some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Whether wandering along fern gullies, climbing the face of the waterfall at Dunns River or strolling on the sands, there are activities for everyone.
Because of its rich and diverse heritage – Spanish colonization, British rule and, finally, independence the historical offerings of Jamaica are beyond compare. The great houses of the sugar plantations give tremendous insight into those aspects which greatly influenced Jamaica’s cultural development.
It all comes back to one thing
While the historical and cultural offerings are tremendous, the beaches and the Caribbean are the main reasons people take Jamaica vacations. The constant sunshine, crystal clear water, and white sands spell paradise. Water sports from snorkeling and scuba diving to windsurfing and parasailing abound, and even the most casual visitor cannot help but get caught up when the paradise effect kicks in.
