Places to Visit in Jamaica.

If you are coming here, the Nine Miles Jamaica Tour is a MUST visit!In fact, many of our visitors stated that they will never forget the experience- it was one the great highlights of their trip.Nine Miles, you should already know, is the birth place of our late great reggae superstar, Bob Marley and is also his final resting place.
About 60 miles from Montego Bay, or 1.5 hours driving, it is located just outside of Brown's Town, in the heart of the parish of St. Ann- not far from the Ocho Rios area.
The trip takes you through various villages where you can learn quite a lot about rural Jamaica- the real Jamaica.
Typically, you are greeted by a Rastaman who opens the gate just enough for the driver to enter the compound and then locks it. They will also not hesitate to let you know that the laws are different inside behind those walls. You will notice that ganja is grown (& smoke) everywhere.
The guide takes you through the black gates, up a steep but beautifully paved walkway and up to Bob's childhood home and his resting place. By the way, the guides will also ensure you learn a lot about the Rastafarian religion.
Here are some picture of Bob Marley.

Best vacation with Kids to Jamaica.

Diapers? Check. Endless supply of Goldfish crackers and juice boxes? Check. Puzzles, Barbie dolls and tiny plastic dinosaurs? Check, check, check.
Any parent knows that traveling with kids is an exercise in logistical planning. The good news is many all-inclusive vacation spots now exist that strive to understand what families need -- and provide it.
All-suite FDR Pebbles promises the usual appeal of sun, sand and sea, and the no-hassle attraction of an all-inclusive set-up, but with an added plus: every arriving family is assigned their own personal vacation nanny. The nanny is on duty all day to take over kid patrol in your suite or accompany your youngsters to the kids club, where they'll have their pick of games, books and activities. Teens and pre-teens have their own activities, including supervised trips to an outdoor campsite, beach parties, fishing, sailing, windsurfing, hiking, all-terrain bicycle trips and other field trips. That leaves Mom and Dad plenty of time to get a massage, read a book, tackle an adventure of their own or just enjoy a quiet meal -- in an adults-only restaurant -- without the constant chorus of little voices clamoring for attention. Be sure to check out their specials, which include a "Bring the grandparents for free" deal, "Family fly free" fall deal and family reunion package.

Dunn’s River Falls is a truly outstanding treasure offering 600 feet of climbing pleasure for thousands of visitors and locals every year. It is safe to say that Dunn's River Falls is only one of its kind. It is depicted as an emergent place to experience. The falls constantly rejuvenates itself from pieces of travertine rock.
