Let yourself be swept away by the reggae rhythmic which floats through the air
If you hear Jamaica you think of Bob Marley, reggae and Rastafarian braids. But Jamaica is more than that. Jamaica has a remarkable landscape with sugar-white sands on warm turquoise sea, green mountains and enchanting waterfalls.
Montego Bay can be called the “tourism capital” with lively street markets, many all-inclusive hotels and action-packed water activities at the beaches.
You will find the prettiest waterfalls and lush tropical gardens in Ocho. The well-known Runaway Bay is only 10 miles away and has wonderful reefs for diving.
If you search for silent spots the Seven Mile Beach in Negril will be the best place to be. It is also popular for its spectacular sunsets. The Blue Mountains are known for their coffee beans, trails, rivers and waterfalls.
June marks the annual Ocho Rio Jazz Festival that hosts 30 events across the island. Founded in 1991 by Sonny Bradshaw it became a tourism attraction while promoting Jamaican music. There will be live jazz music by local artists as well as international jazz musicians.
You should taste on one of the local markets the authentic Jamaican cuisine, from roasted corn to steamed fish and honey. Of course, reggae music will be playing in the background.
