Fun places to visit in Jamaica

by Nellanita
(Saginaw, Michigan)


I have been to Jamaica a total of 20 times. I absolutely love Jamaica! The only places that I have visited however are Negril, Ocho Rios and Montego Bay.

What other areas would you suggest I go and visit? I usually hang out with the locals when I am on the Island.

Thank you so much for your knowledge and expertise.


ANSWER: by Wellesley

Update: I've solicited some feedback from my ardent subscbribers, many of who are frequent vacationer to (and across) Jamaica. You can get their recommendations in the comment link below.

Hello Nellanita,

20 times! That's awesome! But keep coming :-)

My first recommendation would be to direct you to what my site visitors nominated & voted as the The Top 'Hidden' Attractions in Jamaica just a few years back.

I would then share with you these; my original list of the top tourist attractions in Jamaica.

Those two links also have other helpful links you will find really helpful. I am positive that you'll find something new - even after 20 visits!

Please keep coming - and do spread the love and passion for Jamaica.

All the best, and by the way, please stay in touch Nellanita.

Well for me I think portland is exceptionally beautiful especially the beaches there.

Also st Thomas it might not look like much but it has a few attraction like, the bath fountain or the falls in Roselle.

Also you have a lot of historical places like port royal which is in Kingston and the giddy house.... Great island if you ask me... The blue mountain is also a magnificent place...... There's a lot more I could say but I'll leave it at That

other fun places to go in jamaica

Dear Wellesley,

It is nice to know that Nellanita enjoyed her stay in Jamaica. However, I left Jamaica almost 50 years ago (I am from Kingston) and have only gone back for family occasions.

don’t know the tourist areas very well. I think I visited Montego Bay twice and Ocho Rios about the same. I went to Negril two or so years ago for my niece’s wedding.

Although she was born in Canada she wanted to have the wedding in her husband’s grandmother’s old town so lots of us from Canada and USA rented a villa and attended the wedding. We had a good time – taking a mini vacation together.

I hope you get some good answers and that Nellanita will enjoy another visit to Jamaica.

Have a great week.

Next time take a visit to Portland, it's very beautiful there, natural paradise. You can go to Frenchman's cove, the blue lagoon and boston jerk. Frenchman's cove offers both a nice beach and spring and nuce atmosphere. Blue lagoon has a beautiful emerald color you can raft or take a boat ride. There is also a mineral spring there too.

Also you cant leave out the food Boston jerk has the best jerk and you can also sample the food before you buy. Happy vacationing.

The other side of Jamaica
by: Juliet

Try visiting the east coast-Portland, Kingston & St Thomas-Filled with heritage & cultural sites.

In Portland check Rafting on the Rio Grande, Frenchman's Cove, in Kingston & Portland -the maroon communities-their life style & culture are different from what you have seen.

From Kingston do some coffee tours in the Blue Mountains, visit some of the oldest church buildings(1662), Bob Marley Museum x 3, art & music galleries etc

Areas to visit

Hi. How about the hills of St. Andrew. I’m from the Blue Mountains. Strawberry Hill is a great place to chill. The attractions and cafes along the road to the New Cadtle main road is breath taking.
