jamaica_vacation_wellesley_anniversary_2018_beach_coconut_seasideJamaica Vacation - Decameron 2018

Cancun or Jamaica? Bahamas or Jamaica? Panama or Jamaica?
Believe me, I see these questions almost everyday!

Before I answer though, let me declare that:

I am Jamaican. Yes, born and bred here. And that outside of a few travels (maximum 3 months away, I’ve never lived anywhere else!

So yes, I might be a bit predisposed, even so since I can't speak with any authority on the other destinations, but I’ll give it to you, the way I see it, from my own experience here :-)

So to the big question, Why Jamaica for Vacation?
May I answer you in one sentence (line)?

Good...

... Jamaica Has Something For Everyone!
Simple

In my article on vacation in Jamaica, I covered the various options available to you, whether you are seeking adventure, nature, relaxation, party or history. 

You might have heard me brag about it before, but forget the warm tropical climate for a second, Jamaica is truly a melting pot of diverse cultures from around the world.

The Indians, Chineese, English, Spanish, Africans and initially the arawak influences, have blended richly together to create a true cultural gem, an enviable brand that is now an icon the world over.

And this resonates in our food, music, dance and even sports!
So yes, my answer is simple - Jamaica has something for everyone, but I'll break it down ever further for you. Just in case you are wondering what exactly do we have on offer :-)

FOOD & DRINK

Whether it is our famous Jerk  (Pork or Chicken), steamed fish & festival, or a totally 'ital' vegetarian meal. Or from my homemade chocolate tea on a Sunday morning, to the rich pumpkin soup on a Saturday evening, the sumptuous and delectable taste of our Jamaica food is to die for.

Put all of that aside for a second, the abundance of exotic fruits and vegetables here is enough for you to want to get here.

Of course you know that we are also the producers of the world famous Appleton Rum, Blue Mountain Coffee and Sangster’s Rum Cream right?.

ADVENTURE

I do mean it when we say what we have something for everyone!

You can be as brave as the cliff jumpers at Ricks Café in Negril and go for it, you might be a bit more cautious like me and choose the forest , bird sanctuaries or zoo to view the exciting variety of flora and fauna, the cascading rivers and waterfalls.

But you could also give yourself a courage boost and visit one of the eerie historical caves. By the way, we have over 200 species of birds locally, twenty five of which are endemic to this island!

Noticed I didn’t even mention a trek up the 7400 ft Blue Mountain? Yes, we have that too.

BEACHES

Prefer to lounge on a beach chair on pristine white sand beaches having your beer or pina colada? Sure you can do that!

Some of the best beaches in the world are found right here! See Negril’s Beach.

And if at any point the waves captivate you, dive in! Better yet, consider the many water sports activities we have; from snorkeling, parasailing and skydiving to deep sea fishing!

SPORTS, PARTY AND MUSIC

I need not remind you that Jamaica is the birthplace and home of Reggae Music, do I?

Good! So that means that the vibe is always right :-)

Somewhere, in every city, there is a party, every weekend (literally) in Jamaica. And that does not include the Reggae Sumfests, The Dream Weekends and Appleton Weekends in Negril nor the hosts of food festivals we host - every month (almost) From Curry Fest and Crab Fest to Chicken Back Fest and Breadfruit Fest! Yeah mon!

By the way, we now have several gaming lounges on island, if you so desire!

If if you are a sports maniac,  you're not missing out either, there is always a live football (soccer), cricket, basketball, or domino match happening too.

EDUCATION /HISTORY

From the Arawaks to the Spanish, Africans and English. From Slavery to piracy & witches. From hurricanes to earthquakes, Jamaica has endured it all.

This is indeed rich history! 

The haunted rosehall great house easily comes to mind, but our galleries and historical museums curates much of this history.
