Jamaica is synonymous with reggae music, so it’s no surprise that many of its festivals centre around it. Rebel Salute is the longest-running and most famous reggae festival of them all. It’s been going since the 1990s, taking place in February each year. This is a deliberately family-friendly festival with free entry for anyone under 18. You can book flights to Jamaica for the annual Jamaica Carnival in March. It’s a cross between the Rio Carnival and a New Orleans street party with lots of action. Dream Weekend is the celebration of Jamaica’s independence “weekend”, which actually turns into about a week of non-stop partying in Negril. All kinds of music genres are covered, from traditional dancehall to the latest electronic sounds. It usually takes place towards the end of July and the beginning of August. Sumfest is known as the greatest reggae show on earth. Set in iconic Montego Bay, it attracts the world’s biggest reggae stars and will leave you with good memories for a lifetime.
If there’s one food that the whole of Jamaica loves to the point of it virtually being a national dish, it’s jerk chicken. You can buy it from street vendors, on the beach, in bars, and in high-end restaurants. Jerk is a delicious spicy mixture rubbed into the chicken, comprising cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, garlic, ginger, thyme, and pepper. There’s an Indian cultural heritage in Jamaica, too, most visible in another of the island’s most popular traditional dishes, curry goat. The real national food of Jamaica is ackee and saltfish. Ackee is a type of African breadfruit brought over by slaves from Ghana, and it’s cooked with salted fish, onions, tomatoes, and spices. You can have this for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, once again from any street food vendor. Order a bowl of callaloo as a side dish, a dark green leafy plant akin to kale or spinach. Another very traditional dish is called Run Down. It’s a fish stew made with coconut milk and usually served with dumplings or rice and boiled bananas. Lastly, there’s bammy, a traditional flatbread made from cassava that you can eat for breakfast with syrup or with a savoury dish.
One of Jamaica’s most illustrious attractions is Negril Beach, often referred to as Seven Mile Beach. It’s been voted one of the best beached in the Caribbean, not least for the beautiful backdrop of the Negril Cliffs. It stretches all the way from Long Bay to Bloody Bay, with beach stalls and small resorts alongside it. Intrepid holidaymakers also head to the Negril Cliffs to jump off them into the sea. A lesser-known but equally enjoyable activity in Jamaica is to go rafting along the Martha Brae River, with reggae-singing guides to entertain you on the way. You can stop at some of the many little tourist souvenir stalls on the riverbank as you go along. The terraced Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Rios is another wonderful natural attraction and one of the most famous waterfalls in the country. Keep an eye out on momondo to snap up some good Jamaica flights deals and add these attractions to your itinerary.
