Jamaicans are extremely friendly and know how to have a good time. There are nearly endless beaches, waterfalls, rivers, jerk centers, and outdoor activities to explore. The main tourist attractions are on the North coast (Montego Bay, Negril, Ocho Rios) but there are lesser-visited gems in Port Antonio (Frenchman's Cove, San San Beach, Blue Lagoon, Boston Bay). The southwest part of the island also has amazing beaches and nice bed and breakfast options. The weather is usually hot (80 - 90 F) and sunny year round, save for the rainy season (November - June).
