Points of Interest
As with many destinations, visitors can find a number of interesting museums and monuments to commemorate Jamaica’s history. This said, in honor of its wonderful natural resources, travelers may be curious to visit the Old Tavern Coffee Estate, producers of the only licensed estate coffee maker on the island and the Frome Sugar-Processing Factory – a 1930’s historical reminder of Jamaica’s colorful past.
Nature can equally be enjoyed by visiting the celebrated Dunn’s River Falls – considered by many to be the most beautiful waterfall in the world as well as the Blue Lagoon (made famous by the movie of the same name) and picturesque coves –where friendly dolphins await your company.
Jamaican cuisine consists of a well-balanced mix of local cooking techniques and flavors combined with influences from Spain, the UK, Africa, and China. Furthermore, its tropical climate and close proximity to the sea provides the island with a healthy abundance of seafood, game meat and fruit. Popular dishes include salty codfish, curry goat stew, fried plantains, spicy beans, and patties – easily enjoyed with a festive Jamaican rum cocktail.
The legendary Reggae vibe is ever-present when the sun goes down. Bars and nightclubs cater to boisterous crowds wishing to party into the late hours at the capital city of Kingston or the energetic beach strips of Montego Bay and Port Antonio.
As to be expected, water sports rule supreme in Jamaica. Favorite activities include diving, jet-skiing, kayaking, and glass-bottom boat rides. For those travelers that prefer to be active on land, there are plenty of organized tours available to discover the enchantment of the surrounding landscape. Horseback riding trails and golfing are other popular options.
