Jamaica

The capital is Kingston with other populated coastal cities situated throughout the island. Popular attractions on Jamaica include the Blue Mountains, the Kingston Harbor, Port Royal, and the Blue Lagoon.

Jamaican weather is very warm and humid, but higher elevation regions are usually pretty moderate. Certain sections along the southern shore receive rain fall that evaporates before reaching land.

Jamaica’s beautiful natural environment combined with its distinctive culture makes it a great vacation destination. Interacting with Jamaicans make the trip worth it, but add Blue Mountain coffee, beautiful reefs to explore underwater, and world class beaches such as Treasure Beach, and tourists will have an unforgettable experience.
