When the cold settles in, there is no better cure to the winter blues than Jamaica vacations. This Caribbean Island is known for its stretches of perfect beaches, variety of water sports, and a spicy combination of seasoning known as ‘jerk’ that will wake up your taste buds. From Montego Bay to Ocho Rios travelers will find pristine beaches that will set the stage for a perfect Caribbean getaway. If you’re looking for a destination with little more excitement and flavor in the Caribbean, the island of Jamaica is the ideal place to set your sights on.
Other than the spicy cuisine and lively music, travelers plan Jamaica vacations for the water sports. If you can tear yourself away from sunbathing, there are many activities here to fill your days including scuba diving, river rafting, and fishing. No trip to Jamaica would be complete without visiting Dunns River Falls, a 600-foot waterfall that is known for its ‘steps’ that visitors can climb. This extremely popular site is best visited early in the day to avoid the crowds. More adventure activities include hiking to the beautiful cliff of Lover’s Leap or exploring caves along the coastline.
It is possible to plan Jamaica beach holidays to suit a variety of budgets. Whether you’re looking for a luxury getaway at a 5-star resort, a family trip at an all-inclusive resort, or a relaxed trip to a vacation rental, Jamaica will have an enticing option for you. Many visitors are drawn to famous Seven Mile Beach, known for its incredible sunsets. Photographs can only capture some of the beauty of these sunsets – you must see them with your own eyes to really appreciate them. Whether you’re out sailing or sipping on a cocktail on the beach, sunsets are worth catching every night of your trip.
Families will also be drawn to Jamaica beach holidays. If your kids are still at the age where they need plenty of entertainment, Jamaica will deliver a long list of options. What kids could resist glass-bottom boat tours, banana boat rides, or jet ski excursions? Back on dry land, entertainment includes beach volleyball, go-karts, theme parks, and tennis courts. If you are looking to fill Jamaica vacations with activities for the kids, it will be easy to fill each day with a variety of outdoor adventure. If your kids have always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, Jamaica is a perfect place to do so. Colorful coral and tropical fish will be the reward after a series of lessons.
Jamaica beach holidays wouldn’t be complete without kicking back on the beach. Simple pleasures such as reading a book in the sun, sipping on a frozen cocktail, or building a sand castle with your kids will form the bulk of your memories of Jamaica. Another simple pleasure of this Caribbean island is dining. From the catch of the day to anything served up with the famous local jerk spices, cuisine in Jamaica is sure to excite your palate. There is also championship golf and shopping for adults looking for some entertainment designed specifically for them. A trip to Jamaica won’t blend into other Caribbean getaways—this island delivers a distinct cultural experience beyond its pristine beaches.
