Jamaica, The Caribbean Jewel

in Island

Every year thousands of tourists travel to the small island of Jamaica for its stunning beauty. Located in the middle of the Caribbean Sea with Cuba as a neighbour, this area is home to around 2.5 million people, which call this area home. The stunning island is divided into fourteen parishes. Tourists travelling to Jamaica can find a good number of Caribbean villas that are perfect for spending a holiday in. Many people are attracted to this island for the friendly people. True it is an area full of vast amounts of poverty, but the people are warm and welcoming. Tourist areas are filled with restaurants with native cooking and charming people with wonderful tales. It is a land where the pace is drastically slower and life just seems to be enjoyed rather than quickly passing.

Jamaican culture is famous for its soulful reggae music. Strolling through the streets of the Island, it is possible to see several small bands or individuals preforming. The area is enjoyed by the locals as much as the tourists for a good place to relax and unwind. Because Jamaica is an Island and surrounded by water, the beaches are the hot attraction. Being close to the equator gives seasonable favouring temperatures, which are perfect for fun in the sun. Most of the days are sunny and hardly any rain falls to the area. The lack of rain produces some drought conditions at times, but in this tropical oasis the sun seems to never stop shinning.

There are many animals which are native to the island that are rare. The Jamaican Iguana is actually rare and has made the endangered species list. Bird watching is a great way to spend the day. There are more than 325 recognized species on the island. These tropical birds give the island an exotic flare and make for great pictures and memories.

When travelling to the island, there are many lodging options. Sometimes, people find that using Jamaica villas for rent as opposed to a hotel is much more of a cultural experience. Experience life as the natives do living in small Caribbean villas and huts. The island life is different and is inviting. The climate is perfect and the best way to spend a holiday. Regardless of where one is coming from, the natives of Jamaica are inviting and captivate attention. Whether it is the sparkling waters of the Caribbean Sea or the decadent cuisines from natives, there is something about Jamaica that is just enchanting.
