Choosing a tour in Jamaica

If you are planning a trip to Jamaica you will be spoiled for choice as to what to see and do on this breathtakingly beautiful Caribbean island. And if you wish to make the trip a memory of a lifetime, you can choose to stay in Jamaica villas, cottages and apartments, instead of hotels and all-inclusive resorts. Hotels can be highly impersonal and all-inclusive resorts, expensive. Added to this is the fact that in all-inclusive resorts your choice of activity will be limited to what is included in the package. So if you want peace, privacy, space, comfort, and affordability you want, it is Jamaica villas you should choose as your accommodation option.

Once your travel arrangements have been made, you can examine the sightseeing and things to do opportunities in Jamaica. There are innumerable tours that you can take. To make your choice easier, we have listed here some of the activities you can do and sightseeing tours that you can enjoy.

History and culture: Jamaica boasts a rich and colourful history and culture and the best way to discover them is by taking guided tours of the numerous estate houses that dot the island. You can take a guided tour of Prospect Plantation that dates back to 1721 and is still in working condition. The plantation has attracted dignitaries from across the world who have planted saplings here. You can read commemorative plaques through out the area. If you are interested in Gothic horror and witch craft, you can check out the Great Rose Hall and for a glimpse of the Caribbean art, there is Harmony Hall that you can explore.

Sightseeing opportunities: You can enjoy a guided tour of artist Bob Marley’s home. You can also visit the Dunn’s River Falls, Jamaica’s most popular attraction. You can wade right into the water and join a human chain working its way up the slippery stone stairs leading right to the top of the waterfall.

Family activities: If you are travelling with the kids, you can spend the day in the Dolphins cove where you can swim with the lovable mammals. Then there is the Kool Runnings Park, a marine park where there are slides for the adventurous and the staid.

Activities: While here, you can enjoy a guided trek up the misty Blue Mountains or enjoy a boat ride in the Luminous Lagoon. The lagoon is home to a rare phosphorescent microbe known as dinoflagellate. The movement of the water causes the microbes to move and glow with an ethereal neon-green colour, which in turn gives the lagoon its luminous effect. This phenomenon can be witnessed only in four places in the world and Jamaica is considered to be the best amongst them.

Water activities: No holiday in Jamaica can be complete without a visit to the numerous beaches and indulging in water activities. You can go for diving, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and scuba diving.

So there is much that you can see and do in Jamaica. To make the best of your trip, remember to choose Jamaica villas that provide you convenient access to the attractions so that you don’t have to waste time in driving.
