Things to do in Jamaica
Savvy travelers know what to do in Jamaica—hit the Caribbean island’s beautiful beaches, listen to live reggae (or ska or dub) music, bike the Blue Mountains, and sip local Jamaican rum in the cool shade of a palm tree. But there’s much more to explore beyond these classic island experiences. Travel + Leisure helps you zero in on the best things to do in Jamaica.
Whether a tropical girlfriend getaway, couples retreat, or family vacation, you’ll find great ideas in our Jamaica travel guide.
