Take a Bite
Most people associate Jamaican fair with a spicy plate of jerk chicken but there are so many other dishes to try during your travels to the island. Ital cuisine is Jamaica's take on vegetarian food, visitors can also give in to their sweet side by trying yummy pastries like gizzada (nutmeg with sugar and coconut, on a light buttery pastry) and tamarind balls or simply grab a staple Jamaican patty while on the go.
With so much happening around the island, it's tough to choose which activities are a must. However, if there's one activity that is quintessential in Jamaica, it is taking a bamboo raft ride down the Martha Brae River in Montego Bay. The serene vibes will have you planning a return trip before you even leave.
