Vacationing in Jamaica
"Once you go, you know." The tourist board had it right when they coined this phrase. There is a certain friendliness to the island that is unmatched; with a culture that depends on tourism, those in hospitality delight in travelers.
James Bond scribe Ian Fleming glamourized the island in the '60s, shooting Dr. No and Live and Let Die near his estate, "Goldeneye" on the northern side of the island. Indeed, many visitors continue to head for the north shore, home to celebrated Montego Bay.
Expect sugary white sand beaches, rows of bright bougainvillea, and fresh markets with scotch bonnet peppers, mangoes, and locally caught fish. As the third largest Caribbean island, Jamaica remains a place to spend time discovering hidden coves, waterfalls and thrilling coastlines.
