Top attractions in Jamaica

Jamaica, as a holiday destination, promises fun and relaxation for the entire family. A stunning coastline, exotic beaches, majestic mountains, scintillating waterfalls, lush rainforests, and parks, Jamaica is truly a nature’s paradise. Added to this is the fact that you can indulge in plenty of outdoor activities from parasailing, snorkelling, river rafting to hiking up mountains and exploring reserves and sanctuaries. You can make your trip all the more memorable by staying in Jamaica villas, cottages and apartments that have been specifically designed and furnished to give you the best of space, privacy, comfort and services at the most reasonable rates. To get an idea of the type of services, rates and facilities on offer, you can check out the Silver Sands villas and understand why a stay in your own home away from home is a better option than staying amidst the crowds in hotels.

Dunn’s River Falls: Another waterfall you would say. But this waterfall is different in that you can actually hike up to the top of the fall. The water cascading down from the height of 600 feet is simply beautiful but the fact that it tumbles down a series of protruding rocks have added to its charm. These rocks form a natural staircase leading up right to the top of the fall. You can join a human chain slipping and steadying all the way to the top. If you have a waterproof camera, you can click away all the action.

Dolphins Cove: Located near the Dunn’s River Falls, the marine park is perfect for a family outing. As is obvious from the name, the greatest attractions here are the friendly dolphins. Aside from the other water activities you can also swim with these dolphins.

Doctor's Cave Beach Club in Montego Bay: No trip to Jamaica can be complete without a visit to the beaches. One such beach is the Doctor’s Cave where you can indulge in various water activities and also savour the native cuisine from meat patties to goat curry to other native dishes.

Reggae Explosion, Island Village in Ocho Rios: Also located nearby is this interactive museum where you can learn about Bob Marley and his music. Besides you can also learn about Reggae's roots in mento, ska, and rock steady. You can plug in your headphones at various spots and hear songs by and interviews with the island's music greats of the past 50 years.

Seven Mile Beach in Negril: This is counted amongst the best beaches in the world. You can try your skills at the various water sports or simply laze away the hours watching the crowds.

Rafting the Martha Brae: Enjoy a rafting trip on the Martha Brae. The boatman will pole a 30-foot bamboo raft for three miles and take you past overhanging tree branches and wild banana plants, all the while recounting local tales.
