Jamaica is one the most popular destinations for travellers and it’s easy to see why. It’s a beautiful island with gorgeous weather all year round and first-class tourist attractions.
With that in mind, here are seven super things to do in Jamaica.
If you’re an adventure seeker, it doesn’t get much more thrilling than launching yourself from cliffs into the deep sea. One of the best spots for cliff jumping is Rick’s Café in Negril, where you’ll find people hurling themselves from almighty heights. However, for the less daring, there are some lower jumping points, or you can simply grab a bite to eat at the bar and gaze across at the twinkling topaz sea.
Waterfall climbing is without a doubt one of the most popular activities for tourists, with attractions such as Dunn’s River Falls enticing thousands of visitors each year. Navigating your way over steep and slippery rocks can be something of a challenge but you’ll feel super accomplished when you reach the top.
If you’re looking for a fun and relaxing way to experience the beauty of Jamaica, you can’t go wrong with a Black River boat ride. As you cruise down the river, you’ll be in your elements as you gaze upon the beautiful island landscape. Plus you’ll get to meet some of the island’s fabulous resident creatures such as crocodiles, egrets and herons.
Boats are super cool, however, if you’re looking for a ride that’s a little more rustic, consider a raft. Jamaica’s number one spot for rafting is the Martha Brae River, where you can enjoy a hour long ride along across the river, during which your raft captain will recount the legend of Martha Brae – a Taino witch believed to have been tortured by Spanish settlers on the island.
Bob Marley Museum
Reggae superstar Bob Marley is a Jamaican icon and you can celebrate his life and music by visiting the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston. The museum is situated on the site of the musician’s former home where he lived between 1975 and 1981. Here you can enjoy a tour of his property, preserved as it was when he lived there, as well as an interactive journey through the Tuff Gong recording studio.
Swimming with dolphins is a popular bucket list item – and when you visit Dolphin Cove you’ll be able to make this dream a reality. As well as dolphins, you’ll be able to interact with other cool marine creatures such as sting rays and sharks. Other fun activities at the attraction include camel petting, shark shows and a Jungle Trail walk.
A trip to an eco-resort such as Green Castle Estate is a real treat for lovers of nature. This 1,600-acre property is home to around 170 species of bird, including 27 of the 28 Jamaican endemics. Here, you can explore the grounds at your leisure or take part in a specialist birding tour.
There are so many fun things to do in Jamaica and this list is just the tip of the iceberg. So do some more research and start planning your fantastic Caribbean getaway – you won’t be disappointed.
