You’re planning a vacation, but you’re a little stuck.
You know you want a spectacular beach, and you want that “not-a-care-in-the-world, all-inclusive” feeling. One snag — that describes a lot of destinations. Like, a lot a lot with Funjet Vacations. So how to choose? We have four compelling reasons that Jamaica might just be what you are looking for.
No. 1: Flavor, baby.
The food alone is reason enough to pick Jamaica for your next getaway. The island is known for bold, audacious flavor, with jerk chicken as the highlight. You can also prepare your taste buds for fresh-caught seafood, goat curry, fried plantains and ackee. Treat yourself to the spice of life — literally.
No. 2: Dance the night away.
If the day of the week ends in a “Y”, you can find a spot to get your groove on in Jamaica. Music courses through the island and dance is used for a variety of reasons — including worship, cultural celebrations, formal events, social gatherings and storytelling. Whether you are at the beach or a local club, let your hips join in the conversation.
No. 3: Shared language.
English is the official language of Jamaica, making it easy to navigate and get to know the local populace. Listen closely though and you’ll also hear Patois coursing through the streets. Grown out of English and African languages, Patois is spoken in a sing-song dialect, reflecting the color and personality Jamaica is proud of.
No. 4: Welcome with open arms.
Jamaicans are welcoming to all tourists, thrilled to share their culture of music, art and sport. Big smiles and even bigger hugs are the norm. You’ll make the kind of vacation friends that will have you coming back again and again.
Bonus: Miles and miles of beaches
We couldn’t let a whole blog post go without mentioning Jamaica’s beaches. With white sand, mountainous backgrounds, breathtaking sunsets and postcard-perfect blue water, you couldn’t find a better spot in the world to spend your vacation days.
