Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean and with its varied and luxuriant landscape is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful. It is a truly special place, and holidays in Jamaica are always memorable.

A holiday or honeymoon in Jamaica with Abercrombie & Kent is a cut above, providing authentic tastes of local culture and cuisine, as well as the relaxed exclusivity of the finest beaches and hotels.

During your Jamaican holiday, visit the Blue Mountains, which extend from one side of the island to the other and produce some of the most expensive coffee in the world. Rivers and waterfalls have become home to some of the 250 bird species and 3,000 varieties of tropical plants found on the island. High above, rainforests are shrouded in cloud whilst down below secluded rocky coves hide white sandy beaches.

Be sure to try Jamaica's national dish, ackee and saltfish, during your Jamaica holiday. Ripened fruit from the ackee tree is combined with saltfish and seasonings creating a delicious breakfast. With its sugar plantation heritage, Jamaica has a range of fine rums available for the visitor. Echoes of the British rule still remain - a love of cricket, afternoon tea and colonial houses - and blend with the legendary culture of reggae to bring a unique ambiance to this compelling island.
