Jamaica travel information

The third largest of the Greater Antilles, Jamaica is crossed from east to west by a range of mountains reaching 2256 metres in the east and descending westwards with a series of spurs and deep gullies. Lush green vegetation, sparkling waterfalls, unspoilt scenery and a variety of flora and fauna can be discovered on guided walks or hikes in the Blue Mountains, with horse-riding and river-rafting providing other alternatives. Dazzling white sand beaches and glorious coasts invite every kind of water-sport from swimming, sailing and water-skiing to surfing on the north coast. Diving presents plenty of interest, the coastal waters being rich with sponge forests, coral reefs, underwater caves and even close-to-shore wrecks.

Kingston's huge natural harbour has invited visitors for centuries, and the city exudes a bustling multi-cultural air as well as boasting fine museums, galleries and markets. Spanish Town, just west of Kingston, is the former capital and has some of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in the Western hemisphere, while Ocho Rios on the north coast and Negril to the west still retain something of the colourful and sleepy atmosphere of small-town Jamaica.
