Jamaica Travel

 

 

 

Colonizers and slaves

After Christopher Columbus discovered Jamaica in 1494, traders from Spain and Britain colonized the island. During their respective rule they brought in huge number of African slaves for growing more sugarcane on its fertile soil.

After the abolition of slave trade in the 19th century, the British who had grabbed the island in 1655, imported bonded labor from their colonies like India and China. A majority of Jamaican population now are the descendants of those hapless Africans, and some with Asian roots.

Development of tourism

British colonizers were gifted traders and knew how to make money. And money they indeed made in abundance through – what not many people ever thought those days  – tourism.

 

They converted the excess capacity of their cargo ships into comfortable cabins for taking rich aristocrats of the 19th century Europe on their pleasure trips to faraway exotic places. British-ruled Jamaica became the preferred destination because of its wonderful weather and sun-kissed white beaches.

The island was adequately decked up with luxurious hotels, resorts and all that needed for persuading rich travelers to be generous with their money. The character of travelers have since changed. Many backpackers also come here now. Jamaican tourism has become a flourishing industry.

Natural beauty

Jamaica’s plethora of natural and man-made attractions makes it a favorite destination for fun-loving travelers. The island has practically everything that they would like to enjoy on a holiday.

For those who love nature – and everybody is a virtual nature lover – there are long stretches of sandy beaches and sun-kissed warm waters of the Caribbean or the Atlantic depending on where you are.

Even if you weren’t an avid swimmer, you would like the visual appeal of the seascape. The landscape is equally enchanting with vast expanse of green rainforests and flakes of white cloud floating above cascading waterfalls.

The capital city

Kingston vibrates with noise and activity. With the tall Blue Mountains in the background and the Caribbean closeby, the town’s location is ideal for attracting tourists. Besides being the seat of government, it is the island’s cultural center.

There are a few interesting museums, art galleries, theaters and some superb restaurants that will keep you occupied for a couple of days. There are many historic sites in the city like the old hideouts of the English buccaneers – so be careful while traveling in the city! Nearby Lime Cay beaches are good for a dip in the sea.

Spanish Town

It was the capital when Spain ruled the island for two centuries from 1662 AD. A perfect blend of Spanish and British is eminently evident in the town. Stroll around the local market and enjoy its old world charm.

Nightlife and entertainment

You will find a wide range of bars, restaurants and nightclubs wherever you go in Jamaica, especially in Kingston and holiday resorts. Whatever you preferences are you will find here. Being world’s leading sugarcane producing country, you will find excellent rum in Jamaica.

Enchanting Jamaica

Jamaica is a place where you can enjoy day and night. Indulge in water sports activities during the day. Reserve your evening for savoring local cuisine at good restaurants with hypnotic sounds of Jamaica’s reggae music. But there is a risk involved: you may decide not to leave this enchanting island at all! Blog sobre Ajedrez
