Map of Jamaica by its 14 parishes

Kingston and St. Andrew

In Kingston, Jamaica’s multi-racial heritage finds increasingly modern forms of expression, and a cosmopolitan culture that is unique not only in the Caribbean, but also in the world. It’s Jamaica’s largest and capital city, as well as the country’s top business and nightlife destination.

South Coast

The rugged south coast is an adventure traveler’s playground, but rewards all those willing to step off the beaten path with unspoiled natural treasures. Its deserted beaches, cascading falls, Black River safaris, and dramatic cliff side seascapes (especially the picturesque Lover’s Leap) will make you fall head over heels for Jamaica’s wild side.

Portland and St. Thomas

Don’t miss Jamaica’s lushest and most secluded parishes. While Portland’s glory days as a hideaway for the rich and famous are over, the region still boasts plenty of elite retreats for chic and eco-friendly travelers.

Montego Bay

Jamaica’s second largest city is both the bustling capital of St. James Parish and the island’s tourism hot spot. Once you’ve swum in the clear turquoise waters off Doctor’s Cave Beach and roamed the happening seaside “hip strip” of restaurants, bars, and duty-free shops, you’ll understand why the masses just can’t keep away from MoBay.


Formerly the island’s best kept secret, Negril and its spectacular Seven Mile Beach are now dotted with an array of fabulous resorts and boutique hotels. The small town is just a 75 minute drive from Montego Bay and the Sir Donald Sangster International Airport.

Ocho Rios

Ocho Rios is believed to be where Christopher Colombus first stepped foot onto Jamaican land. Today, a lively nightlife scene and an abundance of charming hotels make the town a great base for exploring the interior of Saint Ann Parish. There, you’ll find endless shimmering cascades, including Dunn’s River Falls.
