The Perfect Holiday in Jamaica

By HarryThursday 13th July 2017

When you visit Jamaica, get ready to be enthralled by the energetic island’s culture. Drink rum, dance to reggae and chill on the magnificent beaches- there is so much to experience!

Try the Jamaican Food!

Just as Jamaica is famous for its music; it also has quite the reputation for its cuisine. When it comes to drinking, we all associate rum with the island. And the food? Well that has to be jerk!
Jerk is well ingrained in the Jamaican diet, and while there are many different variants on the recipe, which has often been passed down by word of mouth, there are ingredients that will always be included. Allspice berries, ginger and scotch bonnet chilies make up that hot, smoky, sweet taste.
Jamaicans insist that their chicken is so well cooked, it loses its white colour, and becomes almost pink. The skin should also be partly blackened, and have a salty crunch when you bite through it. Jerk is finger food, meant to be messy and eaten while laughing with great company.
For jerk like you’ve never had before, head to the Three Dives Jerk Center in Negril, where the meat has been marinated for 24 hours. For a true Jamaican experience, we recommend an evening visit, as a reggae band serenades the hungry guests.

Have a Great Time at Good Hope

From what was once a sugar plantation, Good Hope is now a beautiful tourist spot in Falmouth Trelawny. Originally owned by John Thape, he bequeathed it to his grandson, who despite living to the age of 90, wanted very little to do with the estate. Over the years, the once impressive plantation fell into disrepair after various contests between family members over the deeds to the property. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a tour!
This historic main house is great for people who want to learn more about the island. You can take a guided tour through the property, and discover the secrets of Jamaica, and how its history helped create the island we know today.
If you want to take full advantage of the tranquil and exotic location, then why not take a yoga session with Sheila Wilson. She teaches Vinyasa and hot yoga from Good Hope, where she lives.

See the Rainforest from the Sky

It’s not just beautiful beaches, historic sites and finger-licking jerk chicken that’s on offer in Jamaica. The island is also home to a dense, emerald green rainforest. While exploring a rainforest is an adventure in itself, why not really make it an adventure of a lifetime? It doesn’t get much better than a chairlift ride over the canopy!
The chairlift comes as part of a tour, which includes visiting a waterfall and infinity-edge pool, watching delicate hummingbirds and butterflies, and wandering through a beautiful nature trail.

Visit the Bob Marley Museum

If there was any name that was synonymous with Jamaica, it’s Bob Marley. The world-famous reggae star put Jamaica on the map, and has been the face of the island since his career started in the 1960s. While there are many images and references to him throughout the island, true fans must visit the Bob Marley Museum, on the site of his Jamaican home.
Here, you can take a guided tour, see photographs of his life, his personal items and take a seat in the 80-seat theatre. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop to pick up some Marley memorabilia.
