Jamaica

Jamaica is a very hot and interracial country located to the south of the Cuban Island and west of Haiti. Its culture, like other Caribbean countries, is marked by a strong mixture. The cuisine, the music and the artisans are largely beneficial and travelers will live a unique experience.
Jamaica is a country deeply appreciated for its fresh and tasty cooking. Many exotic fruits add an aroma to the meals. You'll definitely have to try the “jerking”, a style of cooking very slow where the meat has been marinated for hours. This well known dish brings forth an unbelievable amount of Jamaican history, marked by slavery and emancipation battles.
The history of Jamaica is not only known for its numerous plates. Many historical houses are for visiting on the island. Whether it's a majestic cottage that was once used by a celebrity or a fortress used during the colonial period, lots of sites are charming and are worth going to. If you prefer to get in touch with the community and discover the charm of the Jamaican people, use the program Meet-The-People. This touristic program will assist you in connecting with a Jamaican citizen so that he can help you discover the beauty of his country. It's an excellent occasion to live the Jamaican experience safely and simple. This program is, however, unknown and Quebecers would certainly benefit from it!
Jamaica distinguishes itself by its beaches and hotels of good quality. The sand is often clear and fine and the water is limpid. The temperature is very hot and generally makes a frivolous traveler happy. On the hotel side, lots of places propose specific products. The Riu Chains, Sandals and Beaches, are very present on the island and are proof of this great specialization.
More and more travelers replace other traditional destinations to discover the natural, historical and cultural charm of Jamaica. Most return satisfied by the natural beauties of this island!

Facts and Customs

Reggae is a very well known dance originally from Jamaica. You must not, however, forget that it's a nation where the dancing is very important. This means that in addition to Reggae, there are more than 30 folklore dances that are practiced in this unique country.
In Jamaica, the population is generally aggressive towards homosexuals. The gay and lesbian comunity will not be well received in this country and violent behavior towards the sexual minorities is something frequent and tolerated. This means that, unfortunately, homosexuals wanting to conserve their physical integrity mustn't use public display or simply not go to Jamaica.
