There are a few things for which Jamaica is known. For starters, the Blue Mountain region of the country offers what is arguably considered to be the world's best coffee. Then there are the reefs along Runway Bay and Ocho Rios, perfect for diving and exploring either via scuba or snorkel. The beaches such as Treasure Beach, Nergril, or Frenchman’s Cove will delight the hardiest of beach-combers, and indulgers of luxury will find the accommodations at places such as Little Ochie to be some of the best in the Caribbean. There are also some of the world's finest rums, or you take a step back in time to walk the plank in Port Royal, one of the most notorious pirate ports in the history of the Caribbean.
One thing visitors should note: it is a myth that marijuana is legal in Jamaica. The country is known for its “ganja”, as the locals call it, and while it is absolutely part of the cultural appeal of Jamaica, travelers should be wary of flaunting it. There is no doubt that most people can get away with smoking in almost all parts of the island, but simply use common sense if you happen to be someone who enjoys partaking. The local prison system is not something you want to see first-hand.
Accommodations and transportation within Jamaica are what one can expect from a Caribbean destination. Due to the fact that Jamaica was a former British colony, if you decide to rent a car you should note that driving will require you to be on the left-hand side of the road. Public transportation is generally your safest bet.
Jamaican food is a must. This is definitely one of the island’s most amazing features, along with its coffee and its rum. Spicy, rich, full-bodied, and enough to leave your whole body tingling, the cuisine should not be missed. All in all, there is plenty of hiking, biking, swimming, snorkeling, drinking, eating, and enjoying life to be done in Jamaica, and it is suitable for all levels of travelers.
We went to Dunn River falls. The water was murky and you dont know if your next step is a rock or a hole. The falls are a very difficult walk.
