Jamaica is located 90 miles south of Cuba and is the third largest island in the Caribbean. It is one of the most diverse of all Caribbean destinations. Here you’ll find something for everyone. If you’re adventurous, try white water rafting, if you want to take it easy, try a leisurely raft ride down the Rio Grande River on a bamboo boat.
