On a Night in Jamaica

Nightlife can be found everywhere on Jamaica and if you get through a whole honeymoon without hearing the strains of Reggae music then you’ve done well. James Street in Ocho Rios is one of the island’s most lively nightspots although Negril and MoBay (the local name for Montego Bay) are not too far behind. Bars, discos and restaurants galore can be found in Jamaica and there are regular street dances, live steel bands, limbo dancing and fire eating demonstrations aplenty.





Top Resorts in Jamaica

The Northern part of the island is where the best, and most popular, tourist destinations can be found. Working our way around the coast, buzzing Negril in the east/northeast of the island is the first notable resort, followed by the equally lively Montego Bay.

The next two resorts, Falmouth and Discovery Bay are more relaxed and low-key, but the latter is not too far from Ocho Rios (referred to by locals as ‘Jamaica’s Garden) which is popular with tourists and offers a vibrant nightlife. Port Antonio in the northeast of Jamaica is less developed than other resorts on the island and was the home to the movie classic ‘The Blue Lagoon’.

The capital, Kingston, on the southern part of the island is definitely worth a visit, but honeymooners may wish to base themselves elsewhere.

Out & About in Jamaica

Kingston is Jamaica’s capital and it offers visitors numerous natural, cultural and historical delights. The National Gallery of Art is home to lots of vibrant and colourful modern pieces, whilst Hope Botanical Garden contains hundreds of rare species of flora and fauna. Port Royal Museum is dedicated to Jamaica’s old capital which was submerged after an earthquake in the 17th century, whilst for those gamblers amongst you, why not head to Caymanas Park race track.

Outside of the capital, nature lovers will adore the spectacular Dunn’s River Falls and you simply must not miss out of a trip to the mystical Blue Mountains. The famous Rick’s Café located on the far West tip of the island is an ideal place to watch the sunset, Columbus Park, at Discovery Bay commemorates Columbus’s arrival and makes for a fascinating insight into the country’s history.

Last, but by no means least, those on a Jamaica honeymoon may wish to head off down the Rio Grande on a two-seater bamboo raft (there is a driver steering so don’t worry!) – the sights are fantastic and it truly is a romantic journey that you will never forget.

Shopping in Jamaica

International goods can be bought at duty-free prices from across the island although the markets offering locally produced goods are superb and is what many visitors will head for. Cigars, rum, pepper jellies, coffee, vibrant paintings, woven straw items and a whole host of Bob Marley related memorabilia are some of the islands best take-away’s. Reggae CD’s and Rastafarian hats are two keepsakes that every honeymoon couple should purchase for their memory boxes.
