Shiny Jamaica is a little gem in the Caribbeans.  Rich in culture and landscapes, it is quite astononishingly different from its neighbor Cuba. Unfortunately the interesting and rich history of the island, from Taino’s heritage to Spanish and British colonization periods is not very well preserved and most efforts for developing tourism has been put into building huge resorts, private beaches, cruise port and ad hoc entertainment park that don’t pay good respect to Jamaica’s diversity. This made discovering Jamaica’s roots quite difficult, with the business side of tourism prevailing over quality; But if one can afford some courage and little investment in private locomotion Jamaica has plenty to offer off major roads: hidden waterfalls and water ponds in the middle of the jungle, impressive views over sugarcane fields, lovely beaches surrounded by mangroves and much more. It is a place worth discovering!
