An island country located south of Cuba and west of Hispaniola, Jamaica is part of the Greater Antilles archipelago, almost in the centre of the Caribbean Sea. Previously a Spanish colony, then British, Jamaica today remains a member of the British Commonwealth of Nations. Despite its central location, Jamaica is a bit different than other Caribbean countries. Yes, Jamaica boasts the same sun, sand and surf as most of the other islands. Yes, accommodation in Jamaica is the same mixture of luxurious resorts and less expensive hotels that are available elsewhere. But the similarities end there.
Jamaica's unique character is shaped by its history and culture, both of which are different than those of other Caribbean countries. Kingston, now the country's capital, was a major centre of the brutal black slave trade, with slaves imported from Africa in exchange for sugar and rum to be sent to Europe. 17th-century runaway slaves fled to the hills and Blue Mountains, where they preserved African culture and traditions. As a result, many Jamaicans feel a stronger affinity for Africa than they do for the neighbouring islands.
Jamaica has much to offer in addition to its unique culture. The Blue Mountains give birth to the world's best coffee and are beautiful in their own right. Coral reefs at Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios provide world-class diving opportunities. Palm-fringed sandy beaches at Frenchman's Cove near Port Antonio offer fun in the sun. Jamaica also features friendly fishing villages, gorgeous waterfalls, wetlands that are home to endangered species and cosmopolitan cities.
