Plan Your Jamaica Vacation | Find Things to Do in Jamaica

 

From the hip strip of Gloucester Avenue in Montego Bay to Seven Mile Beach in Negril, Jamaica offers everything you could ever want in a vacation. With unique culture, food and music combined with spectacular beaches and idyllic weather there truly is something for every traveler. The only worry is fitting everything you want to do into one trip.

Reggae legend Bob Marley, along with such artists as Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh, Toots and The Maytals and Third World have received global acclaim for decades. A more recent derivate or reggae, Dancehall, has become the driving force for a younger generation, heavily influencing local and international trends in fashion and dance – even street language. Sean Paul, Beenie Man and Shaggy are lighting up the charts across the Caribbean and around the world.

It’s not only our music gaining world recognition. A variety of Jamaican paintings and carvings are on display at Kingston’s National Gallery. Priceless intuitive pieces of Dunkley and Kapo, as well as contemporary pieces, ensure the art scene in Jamaica remains as vibrant as any. Regular exhibitions grace art galleries all around the island.

The National Dance Theater Company showcases Jamaica’s colorful history and contemporary ideas, while groups like the Jamaica Folk Singers and University Singers perform traditional song and dance that honor the country’s past. Kingston’s lively theater scene offers a rich variety of locally themed and contemporary plays. A hallmark of Jamaican theater is the Ward Theater’s LTM Pantomime – an annual Jamaican folk musical with original song and dance and dramatic costumes. The season opens each year on December 26th and runs for several months.
