With emerald waters lapping at sugar-sand beaches that quickly run up into lush, mountainous jungles, it's no wonder that Jamaica has earned the nickname "the Land of Wood and Water." Though most travelers to Jamaica resorts come with surf, suntan lotion, and mixed drinks on their minds, there's so much more to this Caribbean nation. It's an island packed with opportunities for extreme adventurers and families alike, so grab a room at one of the hotels in Jamaica before embarking on the tropical expedition of a lifetime!
Jamaica is comprised of three distinct counties, and Cornwall County is the place to go if you want a little historical fun with your sun. The Beach Boys may have immortalized Montego Bay, but few remember that this so-called "tourist capital of Jamaica" is where Christopher Columbus once landed. The Jamaica National Heritage Trust named Falmouth a National Heritage Site, and history buffs will love taking a walking tour among the 19th-century Georgian-era architecture. Hotels in Negril, a nearby beachfront town, are perched on the island's westerly edge, blending miles of gorgeous sand with killer sunsets.
Central Middlesex County offers exotic outdoor activities around the hamlet of Ocho Rios, including swimming with dolphins, speeding down zip-lines, and rafting or inner tubing on the White River. Indulgence is the name of the game in Surrey County, on Jamaica's east end. Enjoy local shopping and visit the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, or learn about the island's piratical past at Port Royal while planning a snorkeling escape at pristine Lime Cay.
