Situated in the very lap of the Caribbean Sea, nourishing a large area of rainforests, and harboring the most appealing reef-lined beaches, Jamaica has been one of the primary tourist attractions for quite some time now.
If you want to go on a 10-12 days vacation and can’t decide where to go, Jamaica might be your solution! But do learn about the geography of Jamaica a little bit before going and plan your trip accordingly.
It seems like a small island but you really need to sort out your priorities before you go unless you want to miss a lot of good spots. Here’s a list of five tourist spots you must visit if you travel to Jamaica:
Dunn’s River Falls
This marvelous place, located near Ocho Rios offers a lot of adrenaline rush for the adventure loving crowd, as this is basically a 600 ft. river falls with natural stairs that one can climb! You can probably identify the falls from the famous rom-com, Cocktail, starring Tom Cruise! However, if you want to climb up the falls, make sure to take help from an efficient guide, and avoid risks. It will probably take you about one to one and a half hour to finish the climb.

It is a well known fact that Jamaica is the home to reggae music and also the home to the legendary reggae musician Bob Marley. The Bob Marley Museum in Jamaica’s capital Kingston is the Mecca for Reggae lovers and music lovers in general. The best thing about the museum is that it is made in the place of Marley’s original studio where he recorded many a songs. But do check the timings of the museum before going to make sure it’s not closed.
