Jamaica is an ideal destination for a relaxing tropical escape. Given its beautiful beaches, spectacular sunsets and dramatic landscape, it is usually seen as a romantic destination for those planning a wedding or honeymoon. However, it has much to offer to the entire family and has something to suit all tastes and age groups. In fact the Jamaica holiday destinations companies cater specially to families.
To gain an insight into the island's history, you can visit Kingston, the island's capital as also its cultural and commercial hub. Also, if you are a reggae fan, you can browse through Bob Marley's museum and learn more about his life and works.
For the nature lovers, the ultimate destination is Ocho Rios, home to the famous Dunn's River Falls. And it is not just the sight of the water cascading from a height of 600 feet that captures the imagination-more than that, you can actually go into the water and join a human chain making its way to the top by climbing the limestone rocks forming a sort of natural staircase.
There are also some interesting beaches, forests and rivers in the region opening up plenty of vistas for hiking, biking, horseback riding and water activities like bamboo rafting, kayaking, swimming, etc. For the locals and tourists, the main focal point is the 'Hip Strip' home to several shops, restaurants, bars and clubs. The parties here continue well into the wee hours of the morning.
