Make holiday rental accommodation or a rental villa in Jamaica your home away from home

Jamaica is the most populated and possibly the most alluring of all the Caribbean Islands. There is a style of holiday in Jamaica to suit every taste in holidays, from the archetypal beach holidays to luxurious honeymoons, and from the lively tourist centres to the hidden secluded holidays in a Jamaican villa with an almost private beach, Jamaica offers it all. Anyway, which ever holiday rental villa in Jamaica you choose, there will be plenty of Jamaica’s famous three R’s to enjoy… Reggae, Rastas and Rum!

Things to do on holiday in Jamaica

Just being in Jamaica and soaking in the atmosphere provides a huge amount of entertainment and really puts a smile on your face, no matter how strenuous you find the flight. The island is truly beautiful, with the tropical forests and soaring mountains providing an idyllic backdrop to the white, powdery beaches upon which you will spend much of your holiday from a Jamaican villa. Diving and snorkelling from the beaches are some of the most celebrated activities, as the clear warm waters are home to a vast range of tropical fish and amazing mammals and the water is so clear that visibility is almost endless! Swimming with dolphins and deep sea fishing also come very high on the list.

If you are staying in accommodation in Jamaica away from the villages and towns of the coast, take a morning to investigate Kingston or Port Antonio. There are always things going on, whether you visit a colourful market, cricket match or game of dominoes, it is hard not to become involved!

Golf in Jamaica has become a massive sport, and there are more than 10 golf courses across the island. Golfers staying in Jamaica holiday villas will be enchanted by the combination of testing holes and stunning scenery.

Walking and cycling are the two best ways to explore the island. There are so many awe-inspiring sights that the more slowly you travel, the more you see. Natural places of beauty like Dunn’s River Falls are located all over the island, and there are some brilliant trails linking a few together for the keen walker of cyclist. Guided excursions of the Blue Mountains are particularly special if you would like to see some of the best views over the island.

There are a number of annual festivals which mean that accommodation in Jamaica is highly sought after, and if you would like to rent a villa in Jamaica during these periods, you must book early. The Jazz and Blues Festival in January, the Reggae Sumfest in July and the International Marlin Tournament in October are the biggest and most popular festivals.

If you have access to a boat, a good day trip would be to the Cayman Islands, or even sail all the way up to the Bahamas. Heading south, there are the islands of Aruba, Curacao or Bonaire to explore off the South American coast.

Climate in Jamaica

No matter when you decide to visit Jamaica, the tropical climate almost guarantees good weather. July and August are the hottest months to take a Jamaican holiday villa, when average temperatures reach around 28°C. There is only about a 10°C difference between the warmest and the coolest days, so no matter when you decide to go away, you will be able to sit on the balcony of your accommodation in Jamaica with a cool cocktail, watching the sun go down!
