Vacationing on Jamaica

Jamaica - an island of varied landscapes

The island nation of Jamaica lies in the Caribbean to the south of {{Cuba}{ID}} and west of {{Hispaniola Island}{ID}}. Originally discovered by the Spanish, Jamaica came under British rule in the 17th-century and is still part of the Commonwealth. Once deeply forested the flora of the island now ranges from bamboo, ebony and mahogany forests to areas of grassland along with cacti and desert plants along the south and southwest coastline.

Arriving in Jamaica

Reflecting its British rule the island is split into three main regions, Cornwall, Middlesex and Surrey Counties. The capital Kingston lies in the easterly Surrey County. Despite its relatively small size, the island supports two busy international airports, one at Kingston and another serving the west of the island at Montego Bay.

The perfect place for 4x4 adventures

While car rentals of all types are widely available on the island a 4x4 makes a good choice. These rugged vehicles are perfect for the variable state of Jamaica's roads and can tackle mountainous areas. They also cope with the more rural roads necessary if traveling north to south on the island. Remember that driving is on the left in Jamaica.
