A Stay to Savor

Included with your stay along with all those cultural identifiers is, of course, FOOD! There’s a lot more to Jamaican gastronomy than just their amazing jerk chicken, and even if that dish is undisputedly delectable and rightfully famous (I know I love it)! It’s worthwhile to bypass your default beach choices for more traditional dishes of Jamaica, including curries, stews, soups, rice dishes, deep fried goodness, & fresh seafood from the never-ending coastlines. For greens, the locals would suggest trying the callaloo, okra, ackee, jicama, which all make a colorful plate plus an exciting adventure.

Fall for the Water

With so many amazing food options around, it’s a good thing that Jamaica also offers a lot of burn some of those calories you’ll absolutely have to consume! One of the top pastimes of Jamaican guests is to seek out and discover its various waterfalls. There are 40+ across the Jamaican landscape, with Dunn’s River Falls in the lead as the absolutely most well-known. This 200-foot fall extends almost 600 feet, with giant steps & little pools, ending near a beach. The 1 hour hike + climb, while escorted by a professional, like a guide, is well worth the effort to most who take this tour, & this attraction is on “must-see” lists for first-time Jamaican guests. However, if you want to keep chasing waterfalls, stay alert! The jungles are full of them, some more or less discovered, which is why the exact count is as fluid as the water cascading down each waterfall.
