Jamaica is a nature lover's dream. Choose to hike daredevil waterfalls, drive or ride along scenic hillside corridors, check in with the gentle native crocodiles on a river safari, or take a trolley through historic towns rich with culture.

A visit to the Accompong Maroons, dating back to 1739, will delight those looking for a cultural experience. Over at the Trench Town Culture Yard, you’ll be introduced to the home of reggae music.

The Manchester Club sits 2,000 feet above sea level atop the cool hills in the center of the island and offers up a full 18 holes. The Tryall Golf Club in Montego Bay offers several levels of awe-inspiring beachside beauty and world-class holes with instructors on hand to help you improve your play.
Head to the beach at Long Bay Beach Park and enjoy an expansive stretch of sky blue waters lapping at your feet.

There’s nothing like the sand in your toes as the rhythmic beats lift you to another dimension.
Give in to an adrenaline rush with zip lining and river tubing tours via Chukka Caribbean Attractions along the White River Valley. Jamwest Motorsport ATV tours, as well as the Mystic Mountain bobsled ride through the shimmering rainforest, will also satisfy your need for speed.
