Discover the lost treasures of Jamaica
Friday, Feb 15, 2013
When thinking of Jamaica, chances are that you will visualise yourself lying somewhere along a beach on a hammock, whilst the leaf of a palm tree delicately hangs over you acting as your shade from the blazing sun, as the breeze of Jamaica's azure waters sounds you to a peaceful slumber. And as appealing as that picture is, it isn't all that Jamaica has to offer.
As one of the richest islands in terms of history, it is only natural that the land would reflect such opulence. Stretching from nature's picturesque creations to the man-made constructions, each characteristic echoes Jamaica's charm and allure.
The Blue Mountains, Jamaica.
Here's a little list of the things that a trip to Jamaica wouldn't be complete without seeing:
