Honeymoon in Jamaica
Arguably as famous for the music as the beaches, a honeymoon in Jamaica is the perfect Caribbean honeymoon flavour…
Picture-perfect beaches, lush mountains, vibrant people, unique music and delectable cuisine. A honeymoon in Jamaica is the perfect fun-filled Caribbean adventure.
When visiting this cultural powerhouse, many couples who go on a honeymoon in Jamaica will head straight for the all-inclusive resorts in Montego Bay or Ocho Rios. These areas are wonderful, with lots of honeymoon hotels to choose from, but there is a lot more to this Caribbean nation than this! While you should book in for a honeymoon treat at a luxury resort, Jamaica is one of the biggest islands in the Caribbean, so to truly experience the island, a tour is a must.
Hire a car and get exploring some of the most beautiful beaches on the island, from Seven Mile Beach in Negril in the west to Frenchman’s Cove in Port Antonio in the east. There’s a beach for every type of couple. Jamaica has a lush green interior with beautiful junglescapes and stunning waterfalls throughout the island. Stay in an overwater villa at a luxury resort.
Take a catamaran cruise to Dunns River Falls, hike to Reach Falls, go horse riding into the Caribbean Sea and watch the sunset from Rick’s Cafe. Dive into the Irie Blue Hole and hike the UNESCO World Heritage Site Blue and John Crow Mountains. Jamaica is a great destination for couples who enjoy adventure activities. There’s zip-lining through the rainforest, hiking to waterfalls, jungle river tubing and cliff jumping. Not to mention a host of your favourite water sports.
Experience Kingston’s abundant nightlife, reggae clubs and dance halls. Learn about the Rastafarian culture. Visit the Bob Marley museum. Jamaica is one of the Caribbean’s best destinations for a foodie honeymoon, too. Whether it’s jerk chicken or goat curry, you’ll be in culinary heaven. Bring home some of Jamaica’s finest – Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee. Learn a little about Jamaica’s history at Rose Hall in Montego Bay. For literary fans and movie buffs, you can even stay where Ian Fleming wrote the James Bond novels at GoldenEye.
Time your visit to coincide with Carnival for a kaleidoscope of colour and good times or find your inner dancehall queen/king at Reggae Sumfest, the biggest music festival on the island. Jamaica is one of the most enticing Caribbean islands.
You can easily combine a honeymoon in Jamaica with North America. Whether it’s a city stop in New York, Toronto, Washington, Miami or Orlando, to name a few. How about a romantic honeymoon road trip in the USA combined with a week on the beaches of Jamaica? Montego Bay airport has direct flights to and from most major American cities.
