Jamaica is bordered by magnificent sandy beaches in a backdrop of tropical vegetation and blue mountain peaks. The numerous national parks offer pristine natural sites and the many colonial towns are handsome sites to visit. The two main coastal towns are Montego Bay and Negril with their fine hotels, restaurants, lively clubs and world-class golfing facilities. The beaches and bars at Negril permeate a laid back atmosphere with the Rasta mood and musical ambience, while Montego Bay is known as the party town and a paradise for shoppers.
Jamaica is also an island of deep cultural traditions, its roots lie in the music, rock, reggae or reggaeton, this is the land where Bob Marley reigned sovereign over music, here one may visit the Tuff Gong and the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston.
