Elevated in the popular culture by its standout reggae music scene and laid back beaches, Jamaica has become something of a tourist’s paradise. In recent years, this Carribean island has received over four million visitors annually. A growing trend in the Jamaican tourist market is tourists’ search for “authentic” and “local” Jamaican experiences. This could be everything from eating at local food places rather than chain restaurants to shopping at a Jamaican fish market. Below, we’ve selected some of the best-rated packages for an unforgettable Jamaican holiday.

To Consider Before Your Purchase
Package holiday providers try to provide variety in their activities to make sure you see all the best highlights. However, Jamaica is a place with multiple compelling destinations. For example, Port Antonio and Treasure Beach, two great destinations, are on opposite ends of the island. This is why you will want to plan stop overs or day trips to destinations not on your package itinerary.
