Jamaica is the Caribbean’s third-largest island. Aside from tourism, the country’s economy traditionally depended on bauxite, bananas and sugar, but the markets for all three commodities have diminished. Most of the beaches are unexceptional, but the country’s interior is extremely beautiful. The Blue Mountains are home to rare flora and fauna, a series of botanical gardens established in the 19th century is eminently worthy of a visit and the Martha Brae River (near Montego Bay) empties into the dramatic Luminous Lagoon, so named for its phosphorescent microbes.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Passport. Visit travel.state.gov, and for travelers’ health information, cdc.gov.

WHEN TO VISIT

The island is sunny and warm with little variation in year-round temperature. The coast is dry from December to June, though the mountainous interior receives rain throughout the year.
