Jamaica: A Bucket List for the Senses
In Jamaica, you’ll find beauty on land and under the sea. The clear, calm waters are ideal for snorkeling and diving among a rainbow of colorful coral and tropical fish. The Montego Bay Marine Park, extending along the entire bay, is a fully underwater national park. Here you can also experience sea life with a glass bottom boat tour.
After dark, the luminous lagoon is a natural phenomenon you won’t want to miss. As you pass through the waters, a blue glow will follow and surround you in this bio-luminescent bay.
As the founder of genres including ska, reggae and toasting (which evolved into rapping) – Jamaica has been internationally influential in music. Bob Marley, sometimes called the King of Reggae, was born and grew up on the island. Immerse yourself with reggae culture and Rastafarian heritage with a visit to Bob Marley’s hometown and childhood home in Nine Miles.
Breathe in the fresh forest air on a hike in the Blue Mountains or from the treetops on a zipline tour. Wherever you are in Jamaica, you won’t be far from the smell of smoky Jamaican barbecue…
