Things to do in Jamaica
When travelling in Jamaica, it won’t be long before you come across a Bob Marley reference. As the country’s most successful musician, Marley’s music has become entrenched within the national identity. Explore his colonial-style home in Kingston, the recording location of multiple iconic albums, and experience story of reggae’s ultimate legend.
For sheer natural splendour, Ocho Rios offers wondrous rolling landscapes and breathtaking beauty. The incredible Dunn’s River Falls are a must-visit – swim, shower and soak up the spray, or hike in the surrounding valleys. Ocho Rios is also home to the enchanting Mystic Mountain, an incredible natural park offering hiking and zip-wiring opportunities like no other. The Mystic Mountain restaurant is also worth trying, serving up a delicious array of contemporary Caribbean dishes and fresh seafood.
History geeks and culture-seekers alike flock to Jamaica’s haunting Fort William in Port Royal. The only one of five original forts to have survived the 1692 earthquake, this eerie square and maritime museum offer an unequalled insight into the country’s early history, as well as offering beautiful views across the port itself.
