Jamaica is a wonderful tropical island that has much to offer. Scenery is spectacular with mountains and gorges, rapid rivers and waterfalls, rain forests and banana plantations, and of course, stunning beaches. The fine grains of sun-bleached silver sands will delight beach lovers and the crystal clear waters at thirty degrees will add to their pleasure. If you hanker after a desert island, book a Jamaica holiday, find yourself a solitary spot and live your dream.
Jamaica came initially under Spanish rule and was later taken over by the British who brought many thousands of Africans to work as slaves in the plantations. It became independent in 1962. The country is an amalgam of influences which is seen in its cuisine, its music and its traditions. The official language is English.
A cheap Jamaica holiday satisfies on many levels and therefore has wide appeal. The landscape offers scope for adventure holidays with opportunities for mountain biking, negotiating rivers via tube or raft, zip wiring through the rain forest or inland safaris. Added to these are the many water sports which include scuba diving, fishing, jet skiing and kite surfing. Take a trip to see the dolphins and the whales, visit the water parks and theme parks, tour historical sites, play golf, ride horses on the beach. The choices just go on and on.
The climate in Jamaica has a hurricane season between July and October which is really best avoided. Temperatures vary little but humidity can be high. Those for whom humidity is a problem will find that the breezes at the coast mitigate the effects.
The standard of accommodation is high and service is very good. You'll find the pace of life is slow but that is in the nature of the island so just sit back and enjoy it. Be sure to evaluate the benefits of the all-inclusive board option as they often have great deals that make economic sense. This is especially true when travelling with children.
Restaurants serve a huge variety of dishes that satisfy all palates. Local food is a combination of tastes reflecting the diversity of cultural influences. The flavours are from Europe, from Africa, from the East Indies and even the Far East. If you enjoy spicy food the famous Jerk sauce may become a regular feature on your plate. Beer and rum are the island's favourite tipples. Nightlife is a lively affair with music and dance. Large hotels provide their own in-house entertainment.
