Visit this tropical paradise in the Caribbean, which combines fabulous natural beauty with its famously relaxed culture.

Home to Bob Marley, reggae music and so much more, Jamaica is the perfect place for a chilled out escape from modern life. It’s a great place to come to soak up the sun, sea and sand, explore lush rainforest and learn about Caribbean history.

Independent only since the mid-20th century, the nation’s flag is highly symbolic of the constant changes it has endured. Black represents hardship over the course of the country’s lifetime, green is for the verdant landscape and the hope for freedom from slavery on the British plantations, while gold signifies prosperity and sunshine – the latter of which the island is hardly lacking!

Fly to Kingston, Montego Bay or Ocho Rios and rent a car, or take a bus tour. Jamaica is home to resorts of the highest quality, where you can enjoy the pleasures of the Caribbean along with the beauty of its coasts and natural environment.

Kingston is the capital of Jamaica, and a vibrant and fascinating place to visit. The local food is excellent – enjoy saltfish and ackee, the national meal, or try out some Rastafarian ital dishes in Bull Bay. For many people, the laid back beats and strong political messages of reggae are synonymous with this country. You can learn about the story of its most celebrated son at the Bob Marley Museum. His message of resistance is still heard all over the world, not least in the poverty-stricken shantytowns of this city.

To the west, enjoy Negril and its spectacular lighthouse, or walk along the seemingly endless expanse of dazzling Seven Mile Beach.

Ocho Rios is another option for an excursion or a change of venue. Take in the tropical paradises of Dunn’s River Falls or Somerset Falls, or enjoy a stroll around genteel Georgian-style Falmouth. If you’d prefer something a little more stimulating, head for Dolphin Cove amusement park.

Jamaica’s stunning beaches have long been popular with holidaymakers. Try the famous Blue Lagoon, from the film of the same name, or visit James Bond Beach, made famous by its appearance in the film Dr No.
