Sunning
Almost smack in the center of the Caribbean Sea, the island of Jamaica boasts the same addictive sun rays, sugary sands and pampered resort-life as most of the other islands, but it is also set apart historically and culturally.

Aside from its people, Jamaica has much to offer, to all kinds of travellers. The Blue Mountains boasts the world’s best coffee. There are world-class reefs for diving and great stretches of palm-fringed sand. There are offbeat bush-medicine hiking tours, congenial fishing villages, pristine waterfalls, cosmopolitan cities, wetlands harboring endangered crocodiles and manatees, unforgettable sunsets – in short, enough variety to comprise many utterly distinct vacations.

Nowhere else in the Caribbean is the connection to Africa as keenly felt as it is in Jamaica. St Ann’s Bay’s Marcus Garvey founded the back-to-Africa movement of the 1910s and ’20s; Rastafarianism took up the call a decade later, and reggae furnished the beat in the 1960s and ’70s.

This is a country infused with pride in its unique history, stunning landscape and influential culture.
