Jamaica

<Back to The Caribbean Homepage

Spectacular land and seascapes set the scene for any visit to Jamaica, where the capital city of Kingston is built around the seventh-largest natural harbor in the world. A little exploration will unveil spots of extraordinary beauty that serve as a magnet for nature lovers, hikers, divers and addicted vacationers, who return repeatedly to this magnificent Caribbean island. Many Bird Watchers Flock here to see the Vervian hummingbird (the second smallest bird in the world, larger only than Cuba’s bee hummingbird); the Jamaican today (which nests underground); or another of the island’s 27 unique species. Fish populations flourish here, both freshwater and saltwater species. At Dolphin Cove, visitors can swim with a family of bottle-nose dolphins. This cove is also home to rays, eels and sharks; on the surrounding four acres of lush tropical rain forest, the indigenous fauna includes tropical birds, like the macaw, and a fascinating collection of reptiles.

At the foot of the Blue Mountains, overlooking the world’s seventh-largest natural harbor, Jamaica’s vibrant capital with a population of 579,137 (Kingston Metropolitan Area) is the largest English-speaking city south of Miami. The center of the country’s government and commerce, Kingston is also Jamaica’s cultural heart, with a wide variety of historical and cultural attractions. A sophisticated, upbeat nightlife and diversity of dining venues offer a cosmopolitan contrast to the rest of the island’s slow and easy pace.
