Jamaica Overview


Jamaica During Spring Break

Jamaica is one of the leading Spring Break destinations for a reason. It has beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, a laid back vibe, and some of the wildest parties in the world. You can spend your days sitting on the beach with an umbrella drink in hand or riding ATV’s through the Jungle. Your nights can be spent chilling with friends listening to Bob Marley or drinking at a Beach party with hundreds of other students. So for whatever you are looking for, Jamaica is a great place to go.

Overview

Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean, and the most populous island in that region. The island of Jamaica is home to the Blue Mountains inland, and is surrounded by a narrow coastal plain. Most major towns and cities are located on the coast. Chief towns and cities include the capital Kingston, Portmore, Spanish Town, Mandeville, Ocho Ríos, Port Antonio, and Montego Bay.

Rastafari

The Rastafari movement was founded in Jamaica. This Back to Africa movement believes that Haile Selassie of Ethiopia was God incarnate, the returned black messiah, come to take the lost Twelve Tribes of Israel back to live with him in Holy Mount Zion in a world of perfect peace, love and harmony. Bob Marley, a convert to the faith, spread the message of Rastafari to the world. There are now estimated to be more than a million Rastafarians throughout the world. Though a small nation, Jamaica is rich in culture, and has a strong global presence. The musical genres reggae, ska, mento, rocksteady, dub, and, more recently, dancehall and ragga all originated in the island’s vibrant, popular urban recording industry. Content via wikipedia
