Jamaica Holidays

From the water, Jamaica is just another Caribbean paradise. But past the front garden of coral and coastline are lush mountains sheer enough to grow coffee, clutches of bands singing songs of Jah and a pace of life that grooves as easy as a funky reggae rhythm.

Holidays in Jamaica

Jamaica’s cragged coastline is interspersed with long stretches of sheltered beach, sea caves that were once pirate hangouts and patches of soft wood trees that drip with exotic fruit and flutter with tropical birds. The verdant interior is like something from a storybook; rivers, sea-caves, waterfalls, lagoons and the bounding hills of Cockpit Country – all presided over by the towering Blue Mountains. Jamaica honeymooners make romance in places apparently named in their honour: Runaway Bay, Maroon Town and Hope Bay. Elsewhere, crooked driftwood shacks sell rum concoctions and plantain snacks as folkloric parades, calypso bands and reggae groups pass on by. Travelbag’s all inclusive holidays add luxuriousness and splendour to Caribbean holiday deals with our range of Jamaica hotels. Be in the thick of it at a Montego Bay resort or hold up in one of the hotels in Negril on the west coast.

Essential Information

Beach-y Reggae

All inclusive holidays to Jamaica induce little reason to leave the beach. The spice rub of jerk chicken can hardly taste better than it does in the salty air and it’s along the coast where the liveliest bars are found. Montego Bay is Jamaica’s most happening beach destination. There’s great diving and snorkelling in the calm waters of Doctor’s Cave Beach and you can shop for hand-loomed fabrics and souvenirs in the ‘Hip Strip’ behind. The southerly Walter Fletcher Beach caters well for families with its tennis courts and go-cart track. Watch couples ride horses down Seven-Mile Beach and cliff divers leap from Rick’s Café in the Negril area. The busy-busy of Ocho Rios is one of the best places to stay in Jamaica as it’s close to not only beach but rainforest, rivers and Dunn’s River Falls; a series of lagoon pools hidden amongst lush foliage.

Best places to stay in Jamaica

Jamaica hotels and resorts overlook the easy-come-easy-go attitude of the coastline and the jammin’, rum fuelled beach parties. The best hotels in Jamaica are in Mo-bay, Negril and Ocho Rios. Travelbag’s standout Montego Bay holidays include Sandals Montego Bay; perfect for couples thanks to its private beach and Butler Elite at guest’s disposal. Couples Swept Away overlooks the Seven-Mile shores of Negril Beach and is an adult’s only affair – colonial style rooms with wooden shutters, surrounded by verandas with sea-views. Travelbag’s got options for cheap holidays to Jamaica too like The Rooms on the Beach, Ocho Rios which has a range of smartly appointed guestrooms and suites with access to an on-site restaurant and pool. Base yourself inland to be closer to the secret garden features of the interior; coffee saplings, waterfalls and the forests of the Blue Mountains.

Natural Mystic & Colonial Heritage

The highest peak of the disarming scenery of the Blue Mountains is 2,256 metres but world renowned Blue Mountain coffee beans also grow in the lowlands, easily reached on day treks. Don your wet shoes and clamber up the steep flight of The Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Rios; 180 meters of terraced waterfalls flowing into the Caribbean Sea. Elsewhere, banana plantations and grand estates document Jamaica’s colonial past: The Rose Hall in Montego Bay, an ex-sugar plantation now haunted by the white witch and a slew of others in New Kingston along with the Bob Marley museums. Sugarcane is still an important commodity to Jamaican life; it’s still the original ingredient at the 265 year old Appleton Rum Distillery in the fertile Nassau Valley, the something sweet in an Old Jamaican cocktail and is often cold pressed with lime and ginger on hot days.

Best Time to Travel

Jamaica has a dual climate: An upland tropical climate prevails on the windward (north) side of the mountains whilst semiarid weather patterns exist on the leeward (south) side. The cheapest time to go to Jamaica has to be in the April and May shoulder season when it’s fairly dry. Accommodation rates are lower, as are the crowd numbers. The December to March peak season is a different story with the best resorts in Jamaica filling up fast (book well in advance for this time of year) and the beaches becoming much busier with the arrival of cruise ships. Although hurricane season officially starts on June first, the weather doesn’t build to hurricane force until closer to August and September. Lots of Jamaica’s festivals happen during midsummer so this is a great time to visit culturally. The below weather chart is based on Mo-bay and other similar beachside locations.
