Description

Renowned for its reggae music, pristine beaches, rain‑forested green hills, unique culture, delectable cuisine and laid‑back atmosphere, Jamaica is the Caribbean's meetings and conventions mecca. It is home to the Montego Bay Convention Centre, the largest of its kind in the English‑speaking Caribbean, and boasts more attractions than any other Caribbean island.
Groups can choose from Jamaica's six resort areas to host their meetings, each offering a unique atmosphere. Montego Bay, Jamaica's second largest city will lure you with its world class hotels and five championship golf courses. The quintessential Caribbean destination is surrounded by white sand beaches, grand hotels, all‑inclusive resorts, charming small hotels as well as villas and apartment‑style accommodations. Negril's laid back ambiance is second to none. Stunningly beautiful ribbon of white sand beach, honeycombed cliffs and crystal clear waters; carefree days and fun‑filled nights reflect the soul of Negril. Negril is Jamaicaís watersports center where you can dive, snorkel, sail, parasail, water‑ski, windsurf, kayak or glide along the coastline by catamaran. Ocho Rios is the garden of Jamaica, adorned with grassy hills that roll gently to white sandy coves and turquoise‑blue waters of the craggy coastline to waterfalls and exotic gardens. Ocho Rios is home to the world‑famous Dunn's River Falls, and James Bond Beach, where Ian Fleming's Dr. No was filmed. Kingston is the largest English‑speaking city in the Caribbean. This colorful, cosmopolitan capital vibrates as a cultural mecca and is the financial and commercial core of Jamaica. A city of museums, theaters and art galleries, Kingston is also the birthplace of our infectious Reggae music. The metropolitan area abounds with nightclubs, dance halls, restaurants and bars that keep the cityís nightlife sizzling. Picture perfect, Port Antonio is a panorama of natureís finest work. It is a place of palms and pimento and an abundance of orchids found nowhere else on earth. Itís where the graciousness of another era is set against the lush, verdant beauty of nature. In the South Coast, explore a jungle river in the wild wetlands, discover hidden beaches, cool off under the cascading waters of YS Falls, enjoy a safari boat tour up the Black River wetlands, or blend your own rum at Appleton Estate. The South Coast isnít just another shore. Itís where you will uncover another fascinating world. Jamaica is a destination like no other.
