Jamaica holidays are so varied; one day you’ll explore the cascading Dunn’s River Falls and the Martha Brae River, and the next you’ll be snorkelling in a marine park.Immerse yourself in the Caribbean culture and explore the Blue Mountains, vibrant jungles and golden sandy beaches. This island is full of breath-taking landscapes, mouth-watering local dishes and the friendliest people. In the evening‚ wind down by taking in the stunning views of the tropical ocean or stay up late dancing until dawn to some traditional reggae music.
Things to do
Relax under the tropical sun on the sands of Seven Mile Beach and sip fresh fruit cocktails under the fronds of a huge palm tree. Take a hike up the Dunn’s River Falls but don’t forget your swimsuit because you’ll walk right through the middle of it!
Refuel during your holiday with delicious street foods like spicy jerk chicken, curried goat, and peppered shrimp. After your lunch has gone down, why not take a quick boat trip to Lime Cay and snorkel in warm water over rich coral reefs?
What should I pack?
Anyone getting ready for their holiday to Jamaica should be sure to pack sunscreen; the weather can get very hot, with a high UV factor, and it’s all too easy to end up lobster red rather than film-star brown. Wear clothes that are light and comfortable, such as loose tops and bottoms made from linen and cotton. While you’ll definitely be packing a swimsuit, it’s worth remembering that these should only be worn on the beach, or you could find yourself attracting unwanted attention.
Up there with sunscreen should be insect repellent. While the still, sapphire lagoons and lakes add to the island’s romance, they’re also the ideal breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Repellents containing Deet are the best way to ensure you don’t come back sporting itchy bites.
Those watching the pennies might prefer to take their own scuba equipment, which can be more cost-effective than hiring.
