Sightseeing and activities tours in Jamaica

Are you planning a trip to Jamaica? If you are, this will be one visit that will surely become a memory of a lifetime. As a first step, you can consider making your accommodation arrangements in Jamaica villas, cottages or apartments that are suitable for all budgets, size of group and requirements. Whether you are travelling single, as couples, with families or friends, you will find Jamaica villas that are well-suited to your needs. Realize that where you stay in Jamaica can make all the difference to your trip and so if it is privacy, space, comfort and affordability you need, Jamaica villas are for you. Besides, these rentals allow you to experience and discover the real Jamaica and not the usual tourist traps.

After making your travel arrangements, you can start examining the nearby attractions that you can visit and activities that you can do. When doing so, you will realize there are many tours that you can choose from. With so much on offer, which one should you choose?

This will depend on what your preferences are. Do you want to go sightseeing or indulge in activities? Are you adults travelling together or is it a family trip? If you are planning a family trip with kids, then staying in Jamaica villas will make all the more sense. This is because most of these villas also provide childcare facilities, which means you can go out with your spouse/partner for activities strictly meant for adults secure in the knowledge that the kids will be well taken care of and will have enough to keep them busy and delighted.

Activities: For those who love the outdoors, Jamaica is a dream come true. Here you can have adventures of a lifetime. There are many agencies offering guided tours of both land and water activities. For example, you can take a guided tour of the Blue Mountains. If it is biodiversity that interests you, you can take a boat ride on 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 color, making the lagoon luminous. This phenomenon can be witnessed only in four places in the world and Jamaica is considered to be the best amongst them.

History and culture: To gain an insight into the rich history and culture of Jamaica, you can enjoy guided tours of various estate houses that dot the island. One such estate is the Prospect Plantation dating back to 1721, which is in working condition even today. For those interested in Gothic horror and witch craft, there is the Great Rose Hall and for those who want a glimpse of the Caribbean art, there is Harmony Hall waiting to be explored.

Sightseeing opportunities: You can enjoy a guided tour of the Dunn’s River Falls, one of Jamaica’s most popular attractions. You’ll be given life jackets after which you can wade right into the pool at the base and join a human chain making its way to the top of the waterfall up the slippery natural staircase.

Water activities: Jamaica is all about beaches and water activities so whether you want to go kayaking, white water rafting, swimming, snorkelling or scuba diving, you can enjoy all sorts of tours.

Family activities: If you are family activities you are looking for, you can tour the Dolphins cove and the Kool Runnings Park that promises thrills for the adventurous and staid activities for those who just want to keep the activities simple and relaxed.

As a closing note, it is important to point out that Jamaica is a small island and it doesn’t take much time travelling from one community to the other; however you can save time if you choose your Jamaica rentals in the right location. If you can reach your destination in five minutes then why drive for an hour.
