Discover Jamaica with all Five Senses

Jamaica is trimmed in long sandy beaches and crystal-clear Caribbean waters. Beyond the sand, the land has soul-stirring beauty with lush forest along misty mountain peaks and hidden waterfalls. An array of smoky, fresh and tropical flavors are to be discovered. You’ll find yourself swaying to the soothing, rhythmic music the country is famous for. Friendly smiles and open arms will welcome you under the warm island sun. A stay at one of our all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica is a treat for all the senses.

Jamaica Montego Bay

Sight

In Jamaica, you’ll find beauty on land and under the sea. The clear, calm waters are ideal for snorkeling and diving among a rainbow of colorful coral and tropical fish. The Montego Bay Marine Park, extending along the entire bay, is a fully underwater national park. Here you can also experience sea life with a glass bottom boat tour.

After dark, the luminous lagoon is a natural phenomenon you won’t want to miss. As you pass through the waters, a blue glow will follow and surround you in this bioluminescent bay.

Steel Drum Jamaica

Sound

As the founder of genres including ska, reggae and dancehall—Jamaica has been internationally influential in music. Pioneer of reggae music, Bob Marley was born and raised in Jamaica and is considered a worldwide symbol of the culture and identity of the island. An advocate of One Love, Marley infused the spirituality of Rastafarianism and social commentary through offbeat rhythmic-based music as a tool for change. Visit Bob Marley's hometown and childhood home in Nine Mile to experience the heritage of one of the world's best-selling musicians and songwriters.
