Jamaica really does have it all: jaw-dropping beaches, lush jungle landscapes, mountains, and more. Thanks to its unique culture (think Rastafarian!), and complex history involving the slave trade and more, Jamaica has a lot to offer its guests. Make the most of it on a Jamaica sightseeing tour.
If becoming one with nature is your thing, visit YS Falls and Black River. YS Falls is considered the most breathtaking waterfall in Jamaica, with seven cascading tiers. It’s the only one of its kind in the Caribbean. Nearby are zip line activities, natural pools for kids and non-swimmers, a racehorse farm, and more. You can also take a Black River safari to see crocodiles and other wildlife living here. If you want to relax, take to Negril Beach and watch the sun go down. Or for a different sunset view, go to Rick’s Café – reputably one of the best sunset viewing destinations in the world. Want more adventure? Then kayak down Great River!
Try your hand at river rafting down the Martha Brae. You’ll enjoy a scenic drive along the northern coast and through the countryside before reaching the Martha Brae Rafting village. Tour the local herb garden, and then hop aboard your very own bamboo raft. You’ll glide smoothly down the Martha Brae River, through bamboo groves and ferns, listening to chattering birds. Soak in the peace and quiet before heading home.
For something cultural, Rose Hall Great House is a must visit. This historical Georgian mansion was built in 1770 and was the residence of John Palmer, who married a woman named Annie who later became the “white witch of Rose Hall.” Apparently Annie murdered her four husbands and many slaves who worked on the plantation, and the house is filled with stories of black magic, witchcraft, and murder. You can also opt for a Bob Marley tour, where you’ll visit his birthplace and final resting place. This is known as Nine Mile, and is a village nestled high in the mountains. You can walk through the King of Reggae’s home, taking in the museum and photo gallery while learning about his career. You’ll also visit sites that were important to him as an artist and musician.Read More ...
