Jamaica Vacation Activities – Things to Do

Author: Sarah Avery

Are you in the mist of planning your all inclusive Jamaican vacation? Right now, your big focus in on making your travel plans. With that said, don’t forget about Jamaica vacation activities; there are so many great activities to enjoy on the beautiful island of Jamaica? Such as…

Golf: A great game of golf requires good weather and you are basically guaranteed that with a Jamaica vacation. As soon as you step off your plane, you’ll be greeted with warm, sunny, and tropical weather. Moreover, Jamaica is home to some of the best golf courses in the Caribbean. The beautiful and varying landscape of Jamaica is often incorporated into these golf courses. There are a number of golf courses scattered around the island, but you might want to consider staying at an all inclusive Jamaica resort with an onsite or nearby golf course. Not only do you benefit from a nearby and convenient course, but guests usually have green fees waived as well.

Fish: If you enjoy fishing or if you just want an activity that is both relaxing and adventurous, you are encouraged to consider deep sea fishing off the coast of Jamaica. The vast array of marine line along the Jamaican coast makes for some spectacular fishing excursions. It is not uncommon for some beachfront all inclusive resorts to have fishing boats available for guests. On occasion, fishing is often listed as an inclusion. However, you do have the option to charter a private boat. Should you decide on this approach, book your charter reservations in advance because deep sea fishing is a popular Jamaica vacation activity.

Land Sports: If you opt to stay at an all inclusive Jamaica resort, you are sure to be paired with a wide range of land sports. Best of all, most of these activities are listed as inclusions, meaning they come at no extra cost. As stated above, a few all inclusive resorts do have onsite golf courses. Other facilities tend to include tennis courts, basketball courts, swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and spas. Jamaica is well known for its beautiful beaches, but there is plenty for you to do at an all inclusive resort should you prefer to keep your feet on the ground.

Water Sports: Water sports can be found at beaches all across the island of Jamaica. With that said, most tourists prefer to enjoy these activities when staying at an all inclusive resort. This is due to the fact that beachfront inclusion resorts offer many water sports at no extra costs to guests. Basically, your travel package paid for and grants you access to these water based activities. Speaking of which? What might you find available? Many all inclusive resorts have windsurfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and kayaking available.

Guided Tour: If you’d like to take a break from the all inclusive resort atmosphere or if you opt for a stay at a traditional Jamaica hotel (where activities aren’t included in the cost of your stay), you might consider a guided tour. Jamaica is known for its wide range of landscape and you can get the best experience of this landscape by opting for a guided tour. Regardless of where you are vacationing on the island, a number of tour options will be presented to you. For instance, there are ATV tours, horseback riding tours, bike tours, boat tours, jeep tours, and hiking tours.

Dine: Traditionally, you might not consider eating a Jamaica vacation activity. After all, must eat everyday; it is nothing new. What you must remember though is that you are on a Jamaica vacation; you are on an island known for its amazing culture. Jamaican food is some of the best in the world. Typically, all inclusive Jamaica resorts have a collection of American and Jamaican foods available. Should you decide to step off your resort property, you will find a host of local eateries serving tasty and authentic Jamaican foods.

Shop: Shopping is another one of those activities that might not seem like that big of a deal, but remember where you are; on one of the best islands in the Caribbean! Throughout much of the island, you will find local duty free shops. Many of these shops carry authentic and handmade Jamaica goods, which make perfect souvenirs or gifts for friends and family.
