thank you for allowing me to share my Jamaica with you!
Sharing the uniqueness of Jamaica with the world
I am Wellesley Gayle, Jamaican born and bred :-)
I started this website in 2007,
purely from my love and deep passion my country.
Since then it has
grown exponentially, providing loads of helpful information about
(almost) everything J'can.
We have already helped thousands of
people in their information search and rest assured that we will help
Walk with me now on my journey as I share aspects of my country, JA 'land we love' with you. Are you ready?

... OUR BEACHES
For many, JA is all about the scintillating beaches.
We have dozens of pristine white sand beaches here my friend; from Holland Bay beach in the East (St. Thomas) to the amazing Negril 7-mile beach here in the West.
No, its not just Dunn's River,
we have many other captivating ones too, including the gushing Mayfield
falls, the rustic Secrets falls, the romantic Reach falls and many
other hidden gems!
LANDMARK SITES AND ATTRACTIONS
One of the beauty of a Jamaican vacation
is the many options you have. You can choose to get lazy on a beach or
raft, or get busy learning about some of our major historical sites, visit an old plantation or taking on an adventure - like cliff jumping? seriously :-) .
By the way, I'd love for us to stay in touch!
So...Do you mind subscribing for my free monthly newsletter?
"Hi Wellesley, this is LaQuitta, I'd love to share this info with everyone I know, I've already told over 50 people i know.
Someday I pray to visit Jamaica. Please continue to do your blog because I honestly can relax when I read it so thank you." -
My favourite topic :-)
Well by now you know about Ja'can Jerk right? Or at least the Juicy Ja'can patties? You should!
But our cuisine extends much wider than those. When you get here be sure you try both the ackee and saltfish with roasted breadfruit or a J'can steamed fish with Okra!...yummm!

Have you been following track and field lately?
If you were, then you don't need to hear about JA's prowess from me right? Yes, You would've heard of one Usain Bolt too right?
J'cans stand out wherever they go and in whatever they do - even the few bad apples. :-) Read more on Jamaican sports here.
So what about about culture? Our motto "Out of Many one People" perhaps provide the perfect definition and insight into our culture.
That amalgamation has has made us special in so many ways. The areas of Food, Dance, Music, Folklore, Religion and Language have benefited tremendously from this amazing blend of cultures.
Reggae music is as synonymous to J'maica as the blue mountain coffee! We created, nurtured, promote and cherish reggae
here. Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff and Prince Buster are notable
contributors to the popularity and success of this genre.
Of course, Bob Marley
became our best known ambassador. But Reggae is not our only music the
traditional folk and mento, are still highly cherished and favoured.
FLORA & FAUNA
The tropical Caribbean climate facilitates our renowned diverse ecosystems. It shelters, nurtures and stimulates the beautiful plant and animal life here.
It's an often overlooked aspect of Ja's offering. Do take some time to 'smell the flowers' when you get here.
LAND AND BEAUTY
When all is said and done, you and I can probably agree that this country is just a darn beautiful place, wouldn't you? Yes it is.
Chef 'Mama' - At Club Ambiance Resort
Forget the beaches, sports, waterfalls and all I mentioned prior.
Listen to this, I actually did a pop quiz here, asking about what makes
Well guess what was the result? Yup, most of the respondents
checked "the people" - the warmth and sincerity of the Ja'can people.
When all is said and done, the Ja'can people is what exudes the spirit
of Jamaica the most.
Here now are some of my favourite pages!
Go ahead and start the adventure!
And by the way, it is this passion for my country that I converted into a profitable little online business, take a quick peek at my SBI story to see how I did it.
