Overview

Most travellers booking cheap tripsflights to Jamaica will be headed to an all-inclusive resort – the island pioneered the concept 30 years ago – where the beaches are beautiful and bustling, the nightlife exciting and every whim is catered for. There will be loved-up couples on Jamaica flights too, the island has become a popular place to get married and, without wasting any time, honeymoon on the beach for a couple of weeks.

For those seeking adventure, Jamaica offers a wealth of activities from diving on Caribbean reefs to ziplining, even dogsledding.

Away from the all-inclusive resorts, what some would call the “real” Jamaica exists – with a friendly and generous people, mouthwatering cuisine and a wild variety of fruits including the ortanique, unique to Jamaica, a cross between a tangerine and an orange.

Kingston, on the east coast, is capital, centre of government, business and cultural scene. It’s a contrast to Montego Bay, on the west coast. Jamaica’s second city is more laid back with stunning beaches, championship golf courses, grand Colonial-era estates and hedonistic nightlife that make MoBay an unmissable destination.
