Where to vacation in jamaica?

by Connie


We are considering a family vacation in Jamaica. What part of the island do you recommend we stay in for a variety of things to do and see? We have all adult children.

Hi Connie,

The most popular tourist destinations over here right now are Negril, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, the South Coast area, and Port Antonio.

The South Coast and Port Antonio areas offer a more sedate and serene atmosphere that could be ideal if you really just want to relax and get some quiet time.

It could also be an opportunity do some nature trails and meet and learn more about the true Jamaica with the rural folks.

Montego Bay, of course been the tourist capital of Jamaica has a lot more buzz. However you will also find many unique attractions to enjoy in and around 'Mobay'.

The famous Rose Hall Great House, Animal Farm, Rockland's Bird Sanctuary and the once therapeutic Doctor's cave beach are easy examples.

A popular and famous destination for vacationers, Negril is almost a little country (in Jamaica) by itself. Negril is for party lovers they say! Whether you are young or old, Negril has something for you!

Negril also host the famous Rick's Cafe, which is considered one of the 1,000 places to go before you die and the adored 7 miles of pure white sand beaches.

Ocho Rios is considered the most romantic of the tourist destinations. Every year hundreds of people journey over to "Ochie" to tie their knots.

Ocho Rios is also just two miles from the world famous Dunns River Falls. The Green Grotto Caves, and the exciting Dolphin Cove Attraction are in its vicinity...
