Holidays to Jamaica

Jamaica is at once the epitome of the idyllic Caribbean dream, and the black sheep of the Caribbean archipelago. Those expecting the postcard perfect powder white sands, cerulean seas, palm trees and ramshackle bars serving up jerk chicken and rum to the reggae beats of Bob Marley, will get exactly what they’re looking for. Delve a little deeper, however, and you’ll unearth a fascinatingly rich history and a lush inland for you to explore. A melting pot of cultures, you’ll find African, European and Middle Eastern influence in the island’s food, crafts and traditions.

Right in the centre of the Caribbean sea, Jamaica brings the colour, verve and a distinctive ‘no worries’ laid-back attitude to the Caribbean islands. The exceptional beaches only scratch the surface of what this incredible island has to offer; head away from the coast and the high-end resorts and you’ll find sprawling banana plantations, beautiful waterfalls, caves and the towering Blue Mountains, famed for their coffee. While the island is a haven for holidaymakers, it isn’t a struggle to seek out true Jamaican charm. Immerse yourself in the easy way of life, abandon the watch and mobile phone, and enjoy the natural wonders of this incredible island.

Jamaica is the perfect year-round retreat, with temperatures hovering around the 30° mark whatever month you choose to visit. Approximately 10 hours flight from the UK, Jamaica is a popular stop-off point for Caribbean cruises which depart from the port of Miami.
