This guide to Jamaica provides complete coverage of the Caribbean's liveliest island. The colour introduction includes the Things Not To Miss section with photographs of the island's highlights from watching cricket at Sabina Park to rafting the Rio Grande. It contains detailed and discriminating reviews of the best accommodation, restaurants, bars and cafes - and the spots to catch the hottest reggae and dancehall. There is informed coverage of Kingston and the major resorts of Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Negril, as well as the lesser-known beaches in Portland and the south. Expert advice and practical tips are given on everything from where to watch the cliff divers at Negril to finding secluded waterfalls and mineral baths. The contexts section provides detailed coverage of Jamaica's turbulent history and fabulous music scene from Marcus Garvey to Beenie Man.
