Things to do in Jamaica

An island alive with culture, wildlife and an easy-going atmosphere, Jamaica welcomes visitors with a wealth of things to do. Our specialists have hand-picked the best activities that will help you uncover the country’s true character, delve into its history and take in its varied landscapes.

You might spend a few hours floating along the Rio Grande by traditional bamboo raft, looking out for endemic birds and plants along the rainforest-lined banks. We can arrange for you to spend an afternoon at a family-owned organic farm in the hills of Saint Ann, wandering the fertile grounds before sitting down to a seven-course farm-to-fork meal. Or, you could visit some of Kingston’s key sights, from the former home of Bob Marley to historical Port Royal, where pirates once flocked.

Our specialists can craft a trip to Jamaica that reflects your interests, whatever they may be, so you can make the most of your time in the Caribbean.
