There are things you might want to do in Jamaica, you could learn about the local famous natives like Bob Marley, watch a live football game or relax and see stunning beaches. We highly recommended going to see Jamaica’s Blue Mountains which contains the highest point in the country, at 2,256m. Intrepid hikers can reach the summit via a trail and find a view of both the north and south sides of the island, as well as sometimes the island of Cuba, 210km away. While the higher slopes of the range are preserved as forest areas, lower down the mountains coffee is grown. Lucky visitors might even catch sight of a Homerus swallowtail – the second largest butterfly in the world.
