Fall in Love With Jamaica!

Fall in Love With Jamaica!

VisitJamaica.com will tell you “fall in love with Jamaica”–and that you will! Jamaica is a country filled with diversity. It has mountains, plains and beaches. Jamaica’s culture is influenced by the European, African and American settlements. Stop by Kingston and learn about the history at the National Museum of Jamaica or walk through Spanish Town to see the old buildings that were built during colonial times. Montego Bay offers beautiful beaches where you can go scuba diving or snorkeling while Negril is famous for its nightlife and Ocho Rios is known as “the playground of Jamaica”.


Kingston, the capital city of Jamaica, is a bustling metropolis with an exciting nightlife and plenty to see and do. The city is home to many museums (the National Gallery being one), as well as some Blue Mountain coffee and several interesting museums. If you’re looking for something more than beach lounging–or if you just want a break–you can visit one of Kingston’s many restaurants like Lola’s Restaurant, which serves up delicious Caribbean cuisine in an upscale setting; or The Juice Bar & Grill if you want healthy food options that are still tasty!

Montego Bay is a popular destination for tourists. It’s the second largest city in Jamaica and has many attractions, shops, restaurants and hotels. Montego Bay has been dubbed “the capital of fun” by locals who love its beaches, shopping malls and nightlife scene. The city is also known for its friendly people–many visitors have commented on how welcoming they felt while visiting here!

If you want to learn more about Jamaican culture while having fun at the same time (and maybe even meeting some new friends), then this city is perfect place for you!

If you’re looking for the perfect place to soak up some sun and relax, then Negril is the place for you. Located on Jamaica’s western coast, this small town offers some of the best beaches in the Caribbean (and one of my personal favorites).

The main attraction here is Seven Mile Beach– a long stretch of white sand that runs through Negril’s center. With blue waters and pristine views along its shoreline, it’s no wonder why this beach has been voted “Best Sunsets in the Caribbean” by Conde Nast Traveler readers multiple times over. If you want to explore other sights while visiting Negril, there are plenty more opportunities available:

Ocho Rios

Ocho Rios is the first stop on many cruise lines’ schedules, and it offers great shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities. If you’re planning a trip to Jamaica–or if you’re already there–it’s worth taking time to explore this beautiful city.

Ocho Rios means “eight rivers” in Spanish; its name comes from the eight rivers that flow into the sea near its coast. This makes Ocho Rios an excellent place for swimming or snorkeling during your stay in Jamaica! You can explore several waterfalls nearby as well: Dunn’s River Falls and Taino Falls are both within walking distance from downtown Ocho Rios (about 15 minutes away) while Dunns River Falls is just across town at Runaway Bay Beach Park with plenty of parking available nearby too.

Jamaica is a beautiful country and worth a trip

Jamaica has something for everyone!
