What to do in Jamaica


Waterfalls and cascades

Due to its mountainous terrain and humid climate, Jamaica is full of beautiful waterfalls and cascades. The most impressive and also the most popular among tourists are the Dunn River Waterfalls, located in the Ocho Rios region. Don't forget to bring water shoes, they will be very useful to explore the falls.


In the footsteps of Bob Marley

It is possible to visit the site where Bob Marley, the famous reggae singer, lived. You only need to climb up the steps of Zion to reach his mausoleum, one of the most spiritual places in Jamaica. You will have the chance to see up close some of the awards he has won during his musical career. In Kingston, which is about an hour and a half drive away, you can also visit the Bob Marley Museum featuring several exhibitions in tribute to the artist.


Green Grotto Caves

With their turquoise water basin, stalactites and stalagmites, these caves offer a very impressive natural spectacle. Quieter visitors will have the chance to observe bats and snakes.


Shops and markets

If you want to mingle with the community and experience Jamaican lifestyle, go to Market Street in Montego Bay. On Sundays, there is an outdoor food market selling many fresh produce and exotic foods. There are also several stores, restaurants and bars on the nearby Hip Strip offering a unique atmosphere.


Beaches and diving

Jamaica is one of the most beautiful islands in the South as it is entirely surrounded by the Caribbean Sea. It is therefore not surprising that its beaches are remarkably beautiful. Many agree that Seven Mile Beach, in Negril, is by far the prettiest beach in the country because of its impressive length allowing vacationers to take long walks. If you are a diving fan, we recommend you to go to Ocho Rios where you'll find the most beautiful sites.
