  • Cuisine

    With fertile grounds and a tropical climate the land yields the most wonderful fruits and vegetables such as sweet mangoes, bananas, ackees, papayas, yams, root vegetables and other exotic fruits, most of which were brought from Africa to feed the slaves at a low cost.

    The most famous Jamaican dish, or should we say preparation, is jerk. Originally this method of spicing and cooking pork underground was designed by the Maroons (escaped slaves) to hide their whereabouts since no cooking smoke was dissipated. Now chicken, fish and other food can be jerked. The unique spices were used to preserve the meat. The endemic cassava root is used to make the traditional flat bread called bammy. Fish is also fried and national dishes include spiced ackee and saltfish, curried goat and oxtail with beans.

    Desserts consist mostly of fruit served with condensed milk or sweet potato and bread pudding. Some would say the famous Blue Mountain coffee is the best in the world. There is an annual Jamaica Coffee Festival held in Kingston. This country produces also fine rums and liqueurs, the best known being Tia Maria.

    Culture

    In Jamaica, the smiling faces and warm words tell many stories of African, English, Spanish, Irish, Scottish, Indian, Chinese, German, and Syrian origins. There is an interesting pairing program called Meet the People that matches tourists and locals with similar interests. Participation is free, contact the Jamaican Tourist Board for further details.

    Here you will find a creative energy that overflows into whatever we do be it visual art, writings, story telling or handicraft. Dancing is an everyday act, whether for worship, cultural celebrations, formal events and social gatherings. Reggae, Jamaica's most recognized sound is heartbeat of our people.

    Religion is everywhere in and is predominantly a Christian country, with large groups of Baptists, Anglicans and Roman Catholics. It is a fact that Jamaica has the most number of churches per square mile than any other country in the world. One religion particular to the country is Rastafarianism, based on the ideal of a world free of poverty, oppression and inequality.

    Geography

    Jamaica has interesting physical geographical features. Measuring 235 km long and 93 km at the widest point, it is located inside the Caribbean Basin. The island of Jamaica is the third largest in the Caribbean.

    The landscape consists mostly of mountains with narrow and discontinuous coastal plains or plateaux. The mountain ranges go across the centre of the island and the highest elevation point is the Blue Mountain Peak, rising at 2,256 m above sea level. The land is naturally irrigated by the 120 rivers that originate in these mountains. The coastline count 1,022 km with white sand beaches on the north side and black sand beaches on the south side.

    History

    The island was first inhabited by the Tainos natives. Then Columbus visited the island in 1494 and not long after began five hundred years of European occupation. The Spanish were the first here but in the 1650s the British captured Jamaica from them. The Spanish retaliated by freeing and arming their slaves, hoping the slaves would fight but instead they sought refuge in the island's interior. These slaves came to be known as the Maroons and they resisted colonization attempts.

    During the 1700s the island was producing 22% of the world's sugar but experienced many frequent uprisings from the remaining African slaves and it eventually brought on the Emancipation Act of 1834. Plantation owners recruited cheap labour from China and India.

    Finally in 1944 universal adult suffrage was adopted and the country gained independence from Britain in 1962.

    Nature

    Creating an exceptional ecosystem, the tropical climate provides Jamaica with a diverse array of natural treasures of flowering plants and abundant wildlife. Natural Rivers, lagoons, marine parks and mineral springs recognized for their therapeutic values abound in Jamaica.

    Explore all three botanical gardens. There are several smaller gardens spread all over the country and many host horticultural shows.

    With more than 200 bird species, Jamaica is a bird watcher's paradise. Many can be observed at the Hope Zoo. The national bird is the Red-Billed Streamertail Hummingbird and it appears on the money and airline logo. Other wildlife includes snakes, lizards, frogs and crocodiles.

    Sports

    Besides sunbathing and swimming you can enjoy a wide variety of water sports such as kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, parasailing, scuba diving, snorkeling. Play a game of tennis or beach volleyball, go horseback riding on the beach or you can even zip around Montego Bay's go-cart track.

    Jamaican sports include athletics and soccer but the national obsession is cricket. Brought here by the British in the 19th century the game has steadily gained popularity ever since. And lets not forget the famous bobsled team.

    Banks & Money

    Foreign currency can be exchanged for Jamaican dollars at the larger banks or the accredited exchange bureaus of the country. Usually the hotels will also make the exchange but at a lesser rate of exchange. There are also exchange bureaus at the Montego Bay and Kingston airports for all international flights.

    ATMs are everywhere. Major credit cards are widely accepted in most hotels, restaurants and businesses.

    Climate

    Mountain breezes and northeast trade winds create a pleasant year round climate. You will find a tropical climate at sea level and temperate climate in the interior mountainous region of the island. The average temperature oscillates between 19C and to 32C. Of course the higher the altitude the cooler it will be.

    There are two distinctive rainy seasons: the first from May to June and the second from September to November. You may experience short but refreshing afternoon tropical showers all year and bring a sweater for the evening during the winter months.

    For temperatures charts please refer to your destination of choice.

    You will visit the following 2 places:

    Negril

    Negril

    Negril is a small but widely dispersed beach resort town located across parts of two Jamaican parishes of Westmoreland and Hanover. It is famous for its 7 miles of cool, white sand beaches and another 7 miles of 40' cliffs. One of the most beautiful towns in Jamaica, it has a more laid back atmosphere than that of Montego Bay and is more touristy than Ocho Rios. When you stay at a hotel on the beach you are literally on the beach when you walk out of the beachside of your hotel. You have probably never seen water this clear or warm. You will be amazed at how far out you can walk in the water before it gets up to your neck. The water is gentler and the sand is whiter(smaller grained aka softer) the farther down(away from town) you are. The end of the beach down by the all-inclusives is the whitest.

    Ocho Rios

    Ocho Rios

    Ocho Rios (Spanish for "Eight Rivers") is a town in the parish of Saint Ann on the north coast of Jamaica. Just outside the city, travelers and residents can visit Columbus Park, where Columbus supposedly first came on land, and see maritime artifacts and Spanish colonial buildings. Ocho Rios was once a fishing village but it’s now a resort with a cruise ship harbor and a busy bay beach that’s lined with hotels. Scuba diving and other water sports are offered in the town's vicinity. The name "Ocho Rios" is a misnomer because there are not eight rivers in the area. It is most likely a British corruption of the original Spanish name "Las Chorreras" ("the waterfalls"), a name given to the village because of the nearby Dunn's River Falls - (a famous waterfall and a major Caribbean tourist attraction that receives thousands of visitors each year).
