Jamaica Vacations: Land of Reggae and Relaxation
Jamaica’s culture, music scene, cuisine, waterfalls, and beach resorts offer a little something for everyone. Experience the luxury and shopping of Ocho Rios, and soak in the wading pools of Dunn’s River Falls. Visit Kingston, which gave the world Usain Bolt and Bob Marley. Relax on a white-sand beach in Montego Bay, or drift down a river. Spend days in the sun, snorkeling, swimming, or paddling, and then dance the night away to reggae and dancehall. Make friends with a Rastafarian, or visit Kingston’s museums and galleries. Discover Jamaica with Liberty Travel’s consultants.
