Originally “discovered” by Christopher Columbus, the island of Jamaica was taken from the Spanish by a British invasion in the 1650’s. Under British rule it soon prospered and by the eighteenth century it was known as the “the Jewel of the British Crown”. The inhabitants of Jamaica were not entirely happy with the British landowners however, as years of a cruel and oppressive slavery system took it’s tole on the people, and they began a revolution which would go on for years. Finally in 1962, the people of Jamaica were able to win their independence from Britain and become a self governing nation.
Today, the island has gained a reputation as the place to escape and relax. You will find world class accommodations here as well as great restaurants and bars. When you are looking to go out at night, Jamaica is ready with dancing halls and the music of great artists like Ziggy Marley and Harry Belafonte, as well as the best Reggae music anywhere.
