Anytime during 2011
When you think of holidays in Jamaica what do you picture? Sugary soft white beaches, grand plantation houses and gallons of golden rum, well, granted, you can while the days away stretched out on the sun-bleached sand. Take a river raft ride past the sugar plantations that are home to those colonial great houses. And even put the world to rights over a glass of the pirates drink. But there's more to this paradise island than you might think.
If you like to explore, holidays in Jamaica are right up your street. Visit a crocodile farm, called Jamaica Swamp Safaris, in Falmouth. Near Ocho Rios, you can climb Dunn's River falls. Don mask and fins and plunge below the briny to see the coral throne room at Negril. All to the mellow background heart-beat of Reggae – it's the lifeblood of all holidays in Jamaica.
The hotels are 3* accommodation on the beach front. You will be staying on a bed and breakfast basis although upgrades are available.
