Jamaica is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all the Caribbean islands with its captivating blend of silken beaches, transparent water, dense jungle, great mountain interior and genuine hospitality.

The island of Jamaica has mountainous inlands surrounded by a narrow coastal plain. For this reason, all major cities are located on the coast. Chief towns include the capital Kingston and Montego Bay.

Though a small nation, Jamaica is rich in culture, and has a strong global presence. The musical genres reggae and ska originated in Jamaica. Bob Marley, perhaps the best known reggae musician, was born in Jamaica, and was very respected.

Jamaica is also one of the best developed Caribbean islands touristically. Jamaica offers every type of activity and nightlife you could want... from tennis and scuba to limbo shows and piano bars.

Jamaica is almost entirely a blend of African and Taino culture. This majority was created by descendants of enslaved Africans who mixed with the remaining Ciguayo Arawaks. These Tainos (sub-Arawaks) were known for archery and have left many of their spiritual beliefs behind in religion ("Obeah" from the Taino word "Opias"), food and culture. Today there is a significant minority of Asian and Indian immigrants, as well as many people of mixed racial background.
