Jamaica For All Inclusive Holidays

With its palm-fringed beaches and laid-back atmosphere, could there be a better candidate for all inclusive holidays than Jamaica? The best known Caribbean island certainly has the beaches and vibe that makes the Caribbean such a popular holiday destination. Yet the destination offers more much for visitors willing to drag themselves outside of their holiday resorts and experience what else the island has to offer:

Rose Hall

Tourists that enjoy spooky stories and are after a touch of the macabre on their all inclusive holidays should take a trip a Rose Hall, where they will discover that the name is the only pretty thing about this mansion. Rose Hall was once home to a stunningly beautiful woman named Annie Palmer, who was nicknamed “The White Witch of Rose Hall”. Annie was murdered in 1831, but not before she rid herself of three husbands allegedly using the power of voodoo magic. Annie’s own death was the result of a slave uprising on the estate, brought about by a love triangle between herself, a slave girl and the estate supervisor. Nowadays, tourists can enjoy a quiet drink at a pub in the restored dungeons where Annie kept and imprisoned victims of slavery.

Dunn’s River Falls

More and more holidaymakers are finally able to visit natural wonders such as Dunn’s River’s Falls for themselves due to the fact that more and more cheap holiday deals are now becoming available to Jamaica. The famous waterfalls are located just three miles outside Ochio Rios and many holiday companies run excursions from the main tourist resorts. The popular Dunn’s River waterfall cascades down 600ft forming cool pools among the slippery rocks. Many tourists attempt to make the climb to the top with a tour-guide and a length of rope – getting wet in the process! For those that make the climb, there’s the reward of fresh seafood from the restaurant on the beach below.

Bob Marley Museum

When Bob Marley brought reggae to the Western world no-one was quite aware of the huge impact it would have on modern music. The 31-year-old singer sadly died from cancer in 1981, but 30 years later his former house, and now memorabilia museum, is still the most visited site in Jamaica. The museum is open from Monday to Saturday with tours taking place every hour. The single clapboard house is where the singer recorded all his tracks and in the same room where Bob penned hits like No Woman, No Cry and I Shot the Sheriff, holidaymakers can watch an award-winning documentary on the artist’s life.

Jablum Coffee Company

Jamaica has a world-class reputation when it comes to two beverages – rum and coffee. Blue Mountain Coffee is the best that money can buy, and tourists will be able to discover this for themselves on a tour of the coffee plant. The 100-year-old company is open from 9am-11am on weekdays, but tours, which include samples and a look at the production process, must be booked in advance to avoid disappointment.
