Photo of Jamaica

We all understand the allure of Jamaica's crystal blue waters and white sandy beaches. But look beyond the water and the sand (and the fruity cocktail) and you'll find that this Caribbean Island has a rich cultural heritage that is as engaging as its beaches are relaxing.

Spend an afternoon bargaining with the locals over hand-woven jewel-tone textiles. Dive into some traditional Caribbean food like jerk-chicken, and you'll soon find something hotter than then Jamaican sun. Take a break from the blinding blue of the Caribbean waters and visit the dark earthy green of the Grotto Caves, which were once used to house runaway slaves. After the sun sets, the tranquil colours of the day transform into the metallic golds and vibrant purples of the Jamaican nightlife. Enjoy a shot of tequila or run, then dance the night away grooving to irresistible reggae beats in eclectic clubs and bars.

For anyone interested in Jamaica for vacation I would first suggest that you not spend the ridiculous amount for all-inclusives, even though they tell you about the great savings. who is really going to eat and drink that much? Come on, and then you have to pay crazy amounts for the activities they offer. I suggest a nice bed & breakfast or hostel. There are pretty nice ones in the Ochi Rios area. I personally stayed at Paradise Jamaica (you can search for it online) and it was really nice. I mean nothing will really compare to thebig hotels, but when you are going on vacation you just want somewhere nice and comfortable to fall asleep. You will save sooooooo much by going this route, and have a chance to really experience what Jamaica has to offer, rather than the fakeness and pretending that goes on in some of those big hotels
