Private Tours and Shore Excursions
The guardian of your satisfaction
The little island in the sun- Jamaica is a phenomenon to many persons all over the world. Whether or not persons have visited the Caribbean Island there is always something profound that is known about the island. Many who have actually visited the island report that Jamaica will always have a special place in their hearts. So many who have visited get to know the country and culture more intimately and are able to capture their own piece of Paradise.
Jamaica is more than a tourist destination in the Caribbean it is a concept, a way of life which is infectious. We have seen how much the culture has pervaded the world at large and has left un-erasable footprints.The Island of Jamaica is for many very therapeutic and a rich source of happiness. Many visitors constantly remind the islanders of the happiness they exude. Our visitors by extension exude a similar happy feeling as they disembark the planes and they cannot wait to be immersed in the warmth of the people and their culture
Being one of the many islands in the Caribbean, Jamaica is most definitely not the only island that boasts a warm climate and beautiful beaches nor has lush rolling mountains. Other islands have welcomes millions of visitors to their shores, yet not many can compare to Jamaica with regards to the uniqueness of the experiences one will have when visiting.
In addition to the potency of its coffee and the unforgettable aroma; the spices that combine to make the most delicious jerk meals: chicken and pork especially. What makes the noticeable difference is that the people open the doors of their hearts to their guests.
Another significant difference between Jamaica and the other Caribbean islands is the richness of our culture. For a nation of only three million people, Jamaica has contributed and continues to impact the globalised world in no uncertain terms.
When one considers famous personalities who have made significant marks on history Jamaica has done a marvelous job in gifting the world with such persons. Robert “Bob” Marley is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable forces to have emerged from the third world. His life story and work have impressed upon so many millions to the extent that visits to the place of his birth in Nine Miles, St. Ann are in the high thousands each year. At his birth place, his legacy is preserved and is shared at an established Mausoleum. The home in which he lived after migrating to the capital city of Kingston is called the Bob Marley Museum and is a site where many visit to bask in the rich essence of this great legend.
Inspirational music is Bob’s gift to the world; his lyrics deliver messages that many say were way before their time in relevance; many of which have manifested as truth which needs no defense. Marley’s works are in their own right education for the ignorant and medicine to the sick. Those who are already enlightened they bask in the glory of their consciousness and grow some more.
Excellence in athletics has been one of Jamaica’s remarkable commodities. In the 1948 Olympics in London, Author Wint won a gold medal for Jamaica; we boast other talents such as Ben Johnson, Grace Jackson, Merlene Ottey. Over all since 1948 Jamaica has won 77 medals at the Summer Olympics averaging almost 5 medals each game.
In recent years, Jamaica has produced some of the greatest and fastest Sprinters; for sure we run fast and many say it’s all in the yam; there is no real proof, but speed is in the muscle line of many Jamaican athletes. Jamaica boasts having the “Fastest Man on Earth” as its son. Usain St. Leo Bolt holds the record of being the fastest man to have ran and won the one hundred meter race. He hails from this little island in the sun; specifically from the parish of Trelawny. Jamaica has also had many other athletic sons and daughters who have contributed to her having such a significant stature in the world.
One cannot get over the Blue Mountain Coffee and the rums that are produced here. Jamaica has approximately one hundred and twenty rivers (120) rivers and you bet enjoying one of the many waterfalls is certainly one of the best things to do in Jamaica.
Best Things to do in Jamaica
The Blue Hole Secret Falls, nestled in the hills just outside the resort town of Ocho Rios in the parish of St. Ann it’s a natural wonder and certainly one of the best things to do in Jamaica.

This comes with a guide that will help guest to navigate the waterfalls and also help with picture taking.

Like the Blue Hole, the Dunn’s River Falls Tour can be combined with some other excursions as well. Doing both the Blue Hole and the Dunn’s River Falls is a great option; though they are both water attractions, the experiences are different and so worth the trod. Other fantastic selections are: the Bob Marley Nine Mile Tour or even horse-back ride and swim.
