Jamaica is famous for its climate — always warm without the extremes — generally around 80 degrees year round — a little cooler in the evenings. Tropical breezes are heavenly, and the smell of salt air has a rejuvenative effect whenever you’re near the water.
Flora abounds across the island. From the large Royal Palms to the smallest buds of the Blue Mahoe, the flowers and trees are a sight to behold. Jungle geraniums flourish everywhere and roses thrive in the island’s climate.
Blend in the smells of ginger, coffee roasting and Jamaican jerk on the bar-b-que, and you’ve found the site to stimulate all your senses.
