One of the things that is critically important for Jamaica’s economy is the tourism industry and in Jamaica, they take this issue very seriously. Jamaica is an ideal vacation destination for singles, couples, families or retirees to offer something for everyone.
Every year, about two million tourists visit Jamaica. Some are first-time visitors, but travel agencies report that more than half of those returning are returning because they like and appreciate everything Jamaica offers as a total leisure vacation. It is not surprising that Jamaicans serve the tourism industry because tourism contributes about 1.5 1.5 million to the Jamaican economy each year, and this number continues to grow.
One of the things that people like about Jamaica is the never-ending list of to-do and activities that appeal to almost everyone. In the middle of the island you have hilly terrain with hikers and adventurers who like to climb and climb mountains. The cultural center has a mix of many cultures yet retains its own identity which is unique to Jamaica. Jamaican golf courses are some of the best in the world. The weather is cool and light year round. And of course being an island you have miles and miles and miles and miles of Atlantic Ocean
There is an “all-inclusive resort” in Jamaica, where this type of resort started. At this type of resort, everything is included at a price, so you know how much you have to spend before you leave home. Many people go straight to the resort and don’t have to set foot outside the resort until they get home! These resorts have many activities like swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing, pool lounging, shopping, and even golf. Some of these resorts have bike tracks with bikes that can be rented if you want to practice a bit on vacation.
Couples and teens will enjoy the Jamaican nightlife, which is expected every night with reggae music and live performers. For young children, there are a variety of activities including nature trails, hikes and beach fun. In fact, all-inclusive resorts can provide a kid-seating service with licensed and trained kid-sitters that can keep your kids occupied and entertained for hours, including a pirate treasure hunt!
It’s no surprise that once you try Jamaica you’ll want to come back time and time again, as these are some of the destinations that offer something for everyone and it takes even more than one vacation to do everything that Jamaica offers for family vacations!
