TripAdvisor described Jamaica this way: “Is there anything better than stretching out like a cat in a warm patch of Jamaican sun? Only if you sprinkle your island vacation with a dash of adventure … Jamaica’s forests feature prime hiking and bird watching. History buffs can the heritage sites of Trelawny, while reggae and dancehall fans will love the authentic music clubs of Kingston. Montego Bay is perfect for snorkeling and shopping, while the spas of Ocho Rios can make any stresses melt away.”
Jamaica was also recognized as the overall winner in the 2018 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards for Caribbean destinations.
