No other Caribbean island offers as much splendor and diversity as Jamaica. Sugar-white beaches combine with shimmering waters to soothe your soul. Explore a rich island culture that expresses itself in superb cuisine, scintillating nightlife, and the sensual beat of reggae music. Jamaica is large enough to provide for every taste. From the world-famous beaches of Ocho Rios and Montego Bay to the toe-twinkling seven-mile stretch inNegril, to uncharted nooks where romantics can hide away. Columbus described Jamaica as "the fairest isle mine ever eyes beheld..." Come see what you think.
Montego Bay is the capital of St. James Parish and the second largest city in Jamaica by area and the fourth by population (after Kingston, Spanish Town and Portmore). The city is backed by picturesque low mountains. Montego Bay is served by Jamaica's largest airport, the Sir Donald Sangster International Airport. The southern U.S. city of Miami can be reached within 70 minutes. The southern U.S. cities of Charlotte, Houston, Atlanta, and Tampa can be reached by nonstop flights in less than three hours. Other locations like Philadelphia, New York City, Toronto, Washington D.C., and Montreal can be reached in under four hours.
Come and enjoy Mo-Bay. Say "Cool Mon" and "Soon Come", and when you enjoy yourself say "Irie" which is the same as Cool or Great!
For years, Negril's 7 mile beach has been rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the world by many travel magazines. The north end of the beach is home to the large all-inclusive resorts. Negril is famous for its miles of cool, white sand beaches. One of the most beautiful towns in Jamaica, it has a more laid back atmosphere than that of Montego Bay. When you stay at a hotel on the beach you are literally on the beach when you walk out of the beachside of your hotel.
Jamaica is a land of adventure and range of new and expanded attractions have added a new dynamic to the destination. Rainforest Bobsled Jamaica at Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios ("Ochee" as it is known locally) has over 100 acres of land stretching from the coast road entrance near Dunn's River Falls (Jamaica's premier attraction) to over 700 feet above sea level at the peak of Mystic Mountain. This environmentally friendly attraction for all ages provides plenty of opportunities to view and explore the unique seaside, tropical forest ecosystem with three unique, exhilarating excursions including: Rainforest Sky Explores, Rainforest Bobsled Jamaica and Rainforest Zip-Line Tranopy Tour.
