Holiday rentals and lettings in Jamaica
Jamaica is an incredible mix of the world’s top beaches around the coast, wild, vertiginous mountains and lush greenery in the centre, vibrant, exciting towns and quiet but fascinating villages. Most holiday lettings are in the coastal areas of Jamaica, but there are some stunning properties to let in the villages away from the coast. For those who prefer an urban stay, Spanish Town offers an insight into the history of both British and Spanish control, and don’t miss the effervescent capital city, Kingston, a fascinating and fun tropical city.The beauty of Jamaica
There is no getting away from it: Jamaica is beautiful. The holiday rentals here ensure that you, the visitor, can relish in the delights of the eye by providing you with terraces and outdoor spaces which overlook the vibrant colours and sights of this incredible island. Plenty of holiday lettings have swimming pools if you fancy an alternative to the beach. Although there’s no shortage of city rentals to let in Jamaica, you can also enjoy properties built in the traditional brightly coloured style characteristic of this island.

The area and getting around
The white (and not so white!) beaches of Jamaica
Think of Jamaica and we all think of miles of sparkling white, pristine beaches, and there’s no doubt that this is an accurate vision of the incredible coastal area. Seven Mile Beach in Negril, to the west of Jamaica, is one of the most famous, and for good reason, with its magnificence combined with an array of excellent bars and restaurants. Ocho Rios is another fantastic destination for beach lovers. But for something completely different, check out Treasure Beach to the south for much darker beaches with interesting geographical differences.
Travellers and activities
Jamaica is a haven of tropical beauty, and for those who wish to step away from the stunning beaches there’s a whole world of adventures to experience. Consider taking a guide if you step off the beaten track, although there are also many well signed trails. The mountainous centre of Jamaica is home to quite extraordinary sights: waterfalls, freshwater pools and exotic plants and animals. Trek up the Blue Mountains (to reach some summits you may need to climb – plan the trip and take a guide) which overlook miles upon miles of coffee plantations, and admire the mists which give the mountains a bluish hue, and their pretty name.Jamaica for reggae fans
The inimitable Bob Marley was Jamaica born and bred, and fans of his iconic music will want to visit the museum built in his honour at Hope Street, Kingstown. It is here that Marley wrote and recorded some of his most important works. Marley’s legacy is how much he’s raised the popularity of reggae music, and his influence lives on strongly across the country. Although you will hear reggae music played across the whole of Jamaica, with artists playing live in bars, and busking on the city streets, annual music festivals such as Sumfest, Rebel Salute and Jamaica Jazz are well worth planning your visit around for those who want to hear the very best
Despite its small population, Jamaica has produced the top three fastest men in the world – considered to be because of the high consumption of yams!
