The Most Memorable Sightseeing in JamaicaPosted on February 22. 2014
In terms of sightseeing in Jamaica, it is a classic case of “so many sights, so little time”. Despite this, here is a list of some of our favorite sights to see and things to do on the island paradise of Jamaica.
Bob Marley Museum
Bob Marley is arguably the most famous Jamaican, as his music and message has touched millions around the world. At the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, you can literally walk in his footsteps as you learn about the man himself, the music he made, and the movements he inspired along the way. The museum is located in one of his former residences and it is filled with artifacts, pictures, and recordings. Whether you are a die-hard fan of Bob Marley or just like to hum along to “No Woman No Cry”, the museum is sure to teach you a few things about him you didn’t know.
The Blue Hole
Located high above Ochos Rios and the overflowing crowds at Dunn‘s River Falls, lies The Blue Hole. The Blue Hole is a bit tough to get to, as you will need to hire a local guide or drive your rental car up a rough local road, but you will be more than rewarded by what you find at the end of your journey. The Blue Hole is a watery playground of rope swings, teal blue pools, waterfalls, and caves that look like something out of a lost world. Due to its location, The Blue Hole is relatively quiet compared to many of its fellow tourist sights in Jamaica, and in fact sometimes if you get there early enough, you can have the place all to yourself.
Martha Brae River Rafting
The Martha Brae River is a relaxing and serene river that flows in the hills of Jamaica, and it is without a doubt one of the most peaceful sights to take in on the island. The most preferable way to enjoy the river is by floating down it on a homemade wooden raft with a local guide. This ride will usually last about an hour or so, and along the way you will get to enjoy the beauty of the river and learn about the flora and fauna that live along its banks.
The Cliffs of Negril
The laid back beach town of Negril is famous for wild parties and beaches, but nothing says Negril more than her famous cliffs. The cliffs are a geological signature of the area, and serve as the setting for several popular bars where locals and tourists alike gather for nightly sunset watching parties and cliff-diving. In fact, some people say you haven’t been to Jamaica until you’ve seen a sunset from Rick’s Café.
Rose Hall is without a doubt the most famous house in all of Jamaica. A large plantation house located near Montego Bay, Rose Hall was designed in a Jamaican-Georgian style and overlooks the Caribbean Sea. A visit to Rose Hall is to take a step back in time and come face to face with centuries of Jamaican history, and if legends are to be believed, possibly a ghost or two.
