This week we visit: Jamaica
Jamaica is a spectacular country. There is no other word for it. Everywhere you turn, you see beautiful people, breath-taking nature and sights that will make you feel like you died and went straight to heaven. Today, we will try to do the impossible and single out the top tourist attractions in this Caribbean paradise.
More likely than not, you will be visiting Jamaica for its beaches. Maybe not just because of them, but they will definitely be one of the main reasons why you are visiting this amazing country. And really, no matter where you go, you will see endless white sand beaches with the clearest water you can imagine. Two fan favorites, so to say, are definitely the Doctor’s Cave Beach and the Negril Beach, one of the most amazing Caribbean beaches in the world.
A completely different kind of an attraction awaits you at the Rose Hall Plantation near Montego Bay. It is a property featuring a Georgian mansion which was built in the 1770s. According to legends, the mansion was once occupied by one Annie Palmer, the White Witch who murdered her many husbands and innumerable slaves. Her ghost is supposed to haunt the property. It is definitely a unique attraction. How haunted it is, we cannot tell you.
If you want to explore the inside of Jamaica’s incredible nature, the best way to do so is to take a raft trip down the Martha Brae River. You will be traveling on traditional rafts and experiencing untouched nature of Jamaica firsthand.
In case you want to explore an even more untouched part of Jamaica, a trip to the Blue Mountains and John Crow Mountains National Park is in order. The name of the park is a bit of a handful, but the park itself is more than worth the trip. The sights are mind-boggling and the nature is just enveloping.
For fans of waterfalls and mineral springs, there are two places to visit while in Jamaica. They are the Mayfield Falls and Mineral Springs and the Dunn’s River Falls. Both these locales feature natural falls and pools where you can take a dip and let the cool water wash away any stress you might be experiencing.
