As the third-largest island in the Caribbean, Jamaica is a popular tourist destination. If the warm sandy beaches, lively local culture, and exclusive resorts of the island of Jamaica are calling to you, there are a few tips to keep in mind for making the most of your Jamaican vacation. Here are some guidelines from Brentwood Travel to help you enjoy everything that Jamaica has to offer.
Enjoy local cuisine
The cuisine of Jamaica is a delightful fusion of traditional island ingredients and cooking techniques mixed with European, African, Chinese, and Indian influences. Popular dishes on the island include curry goat, jerk chicken, fish stews, and an assortment of breads and pastries infused with local favorite ingredients such as coconut. If you enjoy food on the spicy side, the heavily spiced sauces and marinades used to season freshly caught meats and fish are sure to satisfy your appetite.
Take an island road trip
While you will probably want to spend a good deal of your time lounging on the white beaches of the island, there are some inland attractions worth exploring. You might schedule a guided day trip to drive along the winding roads of the island and see the beautiful landscape. Using a local licensed taxi or tour company to explore the island will help you see the sights safely and navigate the somewhat challenging roads of the more excluded areas.
Participate in local culture
The music, art, and nightlife of Jamaica all represent the unique culture of the island that you will not find anywhere else. Even if you are staying at an all-inclusive resort for your trip, it is worth taking the time to explore some restaurants and shops where locals spend their time.
