Each year approximately one million tourists visit Jamaica, the largest English speaking island in the Caribbean, with the most popular resort centres being Kingston, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Negril, Port Antonio and the South Coast.

As the third largest island in the Caribbean, Jamaica is divided into three counties, Cornwall, Middlesex and Surrey, which are further subdivided into parishes with Kingston, the country’s capital being the smallest of the 14 parishes.
Jamaica relies heavily on tourism. In fact, this is its biggest industry and helps empower local communities by creating jobs and fueling the economy, enabling local businesses to thrive.
Life in Jamaica is laid back with music, and in particular Reggae music, an important part of the island’s culture and tradition, with rum, coffee and cricket following close seconds.

The destination enjoys a wide range of attractions and facilities to suit all types of visitors – from stunning beaches, world-class golf and watersports through to colourful street bazaars, buzzing bars and clubs, a variety of cultural attractions and quaint fishing villages.
