Fun things to do in Jamaica

If you are in Jamaica, there is more that you can do than just lounging away at a beach, enjoying the waters while sipping your favourite drink. While on beaches, there are plenty of Jamaica accommodation rentals that you can consider staying in that have their own stretch of private beach. Once you are ready to get away from the comforts of your rentals, here are some activities you can consider.

Land activities

You can begin with the beaches. Some of the best beaches are to be found in Negril, Ocho Rios and Montego Bay. The beaches here are teeming with both people and activities and you’ll see tourists sharing space with vendors selling knick-knacks, chefs preparing and selling jerked meat and hair braiders.

You can also go hiking, biking and horseback riding to explore the invigorating beauty of the island. The other option is to take ATV tours. You can spend the day on a jeep safari or zipping through a jungle canopy. Besides, you can climb Dunn’s River Falls. However, if you are looking for something less adventurous, you can explore plantation houses, parks, museums, reserves and botanical gardens.

Water activities

Jamaica is a haven for water activities. There are plenty of sites for diving and snorkelling. You can also go kayaking, deep sea fishing, sailing and jet skiing. Some of the best dive sites are to be found in Negril, Ocho Rios, Runaway Bay, Spanish Anchor, Widowmaker's Cave and Montego Bay.


Staying in Jamaica accommodation rentals has its advantages with one being that you can prepare your own meals in the kitchen or have the cook pamper you with the choicest of local dishes. This helps you save money by eating in. However, should you wish to eat out, you can ask the staff of the villas who would be able to advise on restaurants and roadside eateries where you can sample authentic Jamaican food or international cuisines should you so prefer.
