This classic 14-day island exploration takes you to the four corners of Jamaica, staying in small boutique hotels with character and charm. Jamaica is the Caribbean’s third largest island offering a variety of landscapes, wildlife, birdlife and golden Caribbean beaches. Snorkel, visit rural fishing villages, hike, mountain bike and participate in a range of cultural tours and activities. From cool mountain top to balmy beach, this trip suggestion offers a great introduction to Jamaica.
All of the small hotels that we use are terrifically comfortable bases offering spa services and are great places to relax in their own right. Perched on a rocky outcrop The Caves has 12 suites with wonderful views. Jakes is nestled away on the sandy south coast in Treasure Beach, and Strawberry Hill will take you back to the colonial era, as a beautiful plantation house on a coffee estate in the misty Blue Mountains. This classic holiday finishes at the glamorous GoldenEye beach resort on the north coast.
