Best Places To Stay in Jamaica – Spending two weeks touring Jamaica’s laid-back coastal towns with their pristine beaches and wild, fertile landscapes will allow you to recharge the batteries and get back to a healthier pace of life.
Montego Bay, Jamaica’s second-largest city is the main entry point for tourists. Located on the northwest of the island, it’s busy, vibrant, and energetic. It has the island’s best shopping, including both malls and markets, a lively nightlife, plenty of tourist attractions such as the Bob Marley Experience, plus its own theme park. With reggae music pumping from every corner pub, and a smile on everyone’s face, straight away you are wrapped up and welcomed into the colorful arms of Jamaica.

After a few days in Montego Bay, head east along the coast towards the town of Ocho Rios, another tourist hot spot. Along with the way pop into picturesque Discovery Bay, a lively fishing village surrounded by breathtaking beaches. Puerto Seco Beach, found here, is one of the most beautiful beaches in Jamaica.
Ocho Rios is famous for its fertile landscape. A visit to Dunn’s River Falls – a group of spectacular waterfalls you can climb and swim underneath – is a must, as is a walk through Fern Gully, a gorge of luscious rainforest stretching 4 miles from the coast to Jamaica’s central mountain area.
Continue along the coast towards Jamaica’s east coast and you will come across the charming pearl of Port Antonio. This sleepy town offers visitors unmatched natural beauty, with tranquil beaches, stunning waterfalls and lagoons, hidden coves, and the magical Rio Grande River all backed by the spectacular Blue Mountain range. Port Antonio is guaranteed to satisfy those after a taste of authentic Jamaica, away from the hustle and bustle. Close by, you will find Boston Bay which boasts Jamaica’s best Jerk and is a haven for surfers.

Head south, through the scenic Blue Mountain range, home to Jamaica’s famous coffee farms, for a quick stop at the island’s capital city, Kingston. A bustling, hectic city, it has plenty of tourist attractions. Here you will find the Bob Marley Museum, a favorite on the Jamaica tourist trail, as well as the National Art Gallery and Port Royal, the old town. A visit to Kingston is a worthwhile experience, but after a day in town, you will be keen to get back to the relaxing pace of the beaches. After all, Jamaica holidays are about taking it easy and enjoying the sun and sea.
Whatever you decide to see or do, one thing is certain: by the time you are ready to board the plane back home, your walk will now be a stroll, you’ll be humming ‘don’t worry, be happy’ on repeat and dreaming of when you will return to the magical Caribbean gem of Jamaica.
