Home to a variety of resorts, including small, one story villas on the beach, elegant hotels, and grand resorts fitted with every conceivable amenity and facility, Jamaica offers the perfect retreat for all budgets and tastes. The idyllic conditions make Jamaica a perfect playground for a variety of land and water sports. Explore the vibrant seas with some snorkelling, diving, or sport fishing, or simply splash around in the warm waters.
