The island of Jamaica rests to the south of Cuba. Though dwarfed by Cuba’s size, at only 4200 square miles (11,000 square km), it is not dwarfed in history, culture, or opportunities for designer active holidays.

In terms of tourism, Jamaica is the third-largest island in the Caribbean. It offers many outdoor active holiday experiences for travellers, alongside the customary Caribbean beach resorts.
Due to a large amount of biological and geographical diversity, Jamaica, much like the Dominican Republic, features a wide range of natural wonders.
These include Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Rios, a 600-foot-high waterfall that empties into the sea.
While in the area, travellers can visit the maritime village of Ocho Rios, which was once a fishing town, but now is focused on tourism.
You can visit the park where Columbus made landfall, take boat and fishing tours, and enjoy some amazingly fresh seafood and other examples of Jamaican cuisine.
Other areas to visit for adventure tourism include the Green Grotto Caves, a series of caves along the north coast of the country, named for the green algae that covers the interior. These caves are quite different from most inland caves in Jamaica or other countries, and definitely worth a visit, both for cavers/spelunkers and tourists in general.
Other waterfalls and rivers are popular for rappelling, swimming, boating, and hiking. The Y.S. Falls is another waterfall that is quite popular with tourists, featuring 7 separate waterfalls in the region along with gardens and hiking trails.
River rafting, horseback riding, and hiking some of the many scenic locales on the island are common adventure travel attractions. Dune buggy and 4x4 safaris and recreation activities are also quite common. The Dolphin Cove at Negril is a great water-based destination, where you can swim with dolphins, of course!
