If there was such a thing as laid back energy, then Jamaicans could bottle it and sell it. They know when to chill and they know when to party on this island and it doesn’t take long to slip into the easy way of life here.

The Hollywood jet set has holidayed here since the 1940’s but you don’t need to be an a-lister to enjoy holidays to Jamaica today.

If you can possibly drag yourself away from the powder soft sands for a while, Jamaica’s mountainous terrain is well worth a closer look, with a great variety of wildlife and plant species to fascinate the nature lovers.
