Photo Highlights from Jamaica

It’s hard not to go camera crazy in a place like Jamaica. Everything from the blue skies to the yellow and pink sunsets are just screaming to be photographed. I’ve narrowed down my favorite pictures to the eight shown in this post. For more wanderlust, make sure to check out my Jamaica Millennial Guide and my insights from volunteering at a local school.

After spending a week in both Negril and Montego Bay, I’m pretty much convinced that Jamaica is one of the most laid-back, relaxing destinations one can visit. Sure, people actually do work here but everyone here wears a smile and tends to approach life as a series of adventure. This is a generalization, of course, but I really appreciated meeting some of the locals and getting comfortable with the lifestyle here.


Photo Guide to Jamaica

As picturesque as the beaches are, some of the most beautiful parts of Jamaica require a bit more time to truly appreciate. This delicate flower, for example, deserves a closeup, don’t you think?

Rick’s Cafe in Negril is a party spot for anyone seeking a bit of adventure. People can eat, drink or cliff jump (not pictured). I opted for the mini cliff, which is more of a high dive, but there were plenty of people who took the plunge.

This fabulous male peacock was roaming around the Sandals property in Montego Bay. Clearly, I was hoping he’s show his colors for me but I guess I’m just not his type. He finally did give us a show the morning we headed back to the airport.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to enjoy the many spas we visited during out trip but I really enjoyed the calm spa grounds at the Rockhouse Hotel. Everything about this property was top-notch and this quiet fountain was the cherry on top.

As one might imagine, Jamaica is perfect for couples or really anyone hoping to fall in love. Everything is romantic here, especially this view from the Sandals resort in Montego Bay. There’s noting better than curling up with a great book and lounging next to “the one.”

Can you believe that this creation is my favorite photo? I’m pretty sure I’m the only one who noticed him during our tour of Rockhouse Hotel but I appreciated these quirky characters right away. I’m not sure who or why they are hanging from the trees, but I think it’s  nice touch.

Oh, and let’s not forget about the sunsets. Most evenings I was too exhausted to catch a glimpse of the setting sun but I had absolutely no excuse on my last night in town. As you can see, it was definitely worth it!
