Jamaica is one of our favourite islands of all time, and throughout this small article we’ll mention 10 simple reasons why we love it so much.
Jamaicans of course!
Two words to describe they’re people – vibrant and talented! Legends such as Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff are prime examples.
Jamaican cuisine is simply stellar. It’s not only the local vegetables and fresh fish that are wonderful – the jerk seasoning, grilling of chicken and pork, the stews and curries are simply so rich in texture and flavour that they are sure to delight any spice lover!
Its strong culture
The Reggae music, Calypso and Dancehall, make Jamaica’s music atmosphere electrifying and simply otherworldly and definitely one of the most marked cultures we’ve ever experienced.
The local fruits
The fruits in Jamaica are amazing! Indigenous to Jamaica is the Ackee, a colourful fruit that’s used with salt fish as Jamaica’s national dish.
The amazing seafood
Fresh lobster and delectable seafood is found in many beach restaurants and beach bars. For those of you that love seafood we would definitely recommend spending some quality time dining in Jamaica.
Its beautiful beaches
If white sands and turquoise waters are your thing, then you’ll love the beaches of Jamaica – one of the main reasons thousands and thousands of tourists go to this island every year.
Its historical heritage
Jamaica is quite rich in history, and so it can delight even the most demanding history buffs.
Its cocktails and rum.
Nothing yells Caribbean higher than a full bottle of Rum! Rum is definitely one of the highlights of the Jamaican drinking heritage.
This is the greatest thing about Jamaica – even though Jamaica is so amazing, the price to travel and stay there on vacation is generally affordable. This makes it a popular destination even for those on a budget.
It’s the best destination for a holiday
From our point of view, and weighing every item on this list, Jamaica is one of the best places on the planet. Vacations in Bob Marley’s home country are always memorable.
