Known for its stunning beauty, friendly people, vibrant culture and rich history, there's no better word to describe the jamaican experience other than, well... IRIE

Jamaica is a destination so dynamic and multifaceted you could make hundreds of visits and have a unique experience every single time.

Home of the legendary Bob Marley, arguably reggae’s most iconic and globally recognised face, the island’s most popular musical export is an eclectic mix of infectious beats and enchanting — if sometimes scathing — lyrics. It can be heard throughout the island, and is celebrated with annual festivals such as Reggae Sumfest and Rebel Salute, where you could also indulge in Jamaica’s renowned culinary treats.

To visit Jamaica and not try jerked chicken, pork, fish, conch or sausage — or any kind of meat or seafood — is almost sacrilegious. The technique involves smoking  meat or seafood that has been seasoned with an abundance of traditional spices and herbs either in a metal drum or barrel, or over flavoured wood. Though the method has evolved over time and varies by chef, the flavour remains the same:undeniably Jamaican and unquestionably delicious.

Traditional Jamaican patties are also a must-try, as are curried goat, mannish water, oxtail and, of course, the national dish, ackee and saltfish.
Lined with powdery white sand and the most inviting aquamarine waters,Jamaica’s beaches are listed amongst the world’s best. From the world-famous Doctor’s Cave Beach in Montego Bay to the equally popular Seven Mile Beach in Negril, Frenchman’s Cove in Portland, Treasure Beach on the South Coast or the unique Dunn’s River Falls and Beach in Ocho Rios, there’s a beach for everyone.

But if lounging on the sand all day is not your style, a visit to Jamaica may be just what the doctor ordered. With hundreds of fitness facilities and countless running and exercise groups, the global thrust towards health and wellness has spawned annual events such as the Reggae Marathon and the Kingston City Run. The get-fit movement has also influenced the creation of several health and wellness bars, as well as spa, fitness and yoga retreats at upscale resorts.

World-famous sunsets and a laid-back vibe make negril more than just an enchanting beach town.

Seven Mile Beach is certainly not the only beach worth visiting in Negril. Bloody Bay Beach — often called “the other Negril beach” — is popular amongst the locals and is equally beautiful and relaxing.

The Negril Marine Park located at the Negril Environmental Protection Area is a favourite amongst all nature lovers, especially those in love with marine life. The park is divided into several recreational zones and provides a unique opportunity to view the local marine ecosystem.

There is something magical about waterfalls, and Port Antonio boasts two of the island’s most breathtaking.

Shopping in Port Antonio can be extremely rewarding, as fine jewellery and other high-quality fashion items can often be found at a much lower price point than in other parts of the island.
