From the soaring peaks of the Blue Mountains to the life giving waters of the Rio Grande and from the powder white sands of Seven Mile Beach to the crashing spray of the Dunn’s River Falls, Jamaica is home to one of the most diverse and stunning natural worlds in the Caribbean. These beautiful habitats are home to a surprising variety of animals ranging from crocodiles to coneys, over 300 species of birds including the enchanting Bee Hummingbird, many striking butterflies and a wealth of colourful marine life in the surrounding ocean reefs.
With a rich history dating back to the Spanish conquistadores and the swashbuckling buccaneers of the 15th & 16th Centuries through to the slave trade and the British colonisation, Jamaica has a long and entrancing story to tell. A strong part of the island’s identity is its music, which also tells a story whether that’s through the gospel sounds from the island’s many churches, the folk songs reaching back to their West African roots or as the birthplace of reggae. Sport is another national pastime and with such highly acclaimed stars as the cricketing legend Michael Holding and the sprinting genius Usain Bolt, few would doubt the country’s sporting prowess. Combined with culinary highlights such as ackee and saltfish or spicy jerk chicken, Jamaica can rightfully boast about its rich and diverse cultural heritage.
