Things to Do in Jamaica

As one of the larger Caribbean islands there are quite a few great things to do in Jamaica. First and foremost, dining out is a Jamaica highlight, the cuisine is a fusion of European, African, Oriental, Indian and Middle Eastern which is ultimately uniquely Jamaican. Dining out isn’t just about the food either, it’s about the music, entertainment and having a great time.
