Hike The Hills

If you're looking to venture out towards the eastern side of the island and like a little adventure, hiking through the Blue Mountains will be just your thing. Plush, beautiful tropical vegetation and flowers fill the mountain, making this one of the most scenic hikes you'll ever go on!


This adventure is definitely for those who are looking for a challenging hike. But, if you want to experience a part of Jamaica that is not overly crowded with tourists and lets you see the gorgeous landscapes, traveling to the Blue Mountains will be well-worth your time.


Dine Around Jamaica

Every November Jamaica celebrates Restaurant Week, allowing restaurants all over the island to create special menus and specials for people to try. You can dine on special drinks, signature dishes and a chance to interact with locals in Jamaica.


You're encouraged to eat out if you're visiting Jamaica during restaurant week, and prices are reduced up to 50% off!
