As chilly temperatures sweep the country, couples can take the opportunity to warm up in Jamaica where there’s the carefree decision of doing as much or as little as they’d like.
With more attraction choices than any other English speaking Caribbean country, Jamaica is ripe with choices for a romantic getaway. Couples can even take the “leap” off the cliffs in Negril, where visitors and locals alike spend hours “lyming” with entertainment, and of course, sipping Jamaican cocktails.
“One can always find a reason to travel to Jamaica, especially February for Valentine’s Day,” said Director of Tourism at the Jamaica Tourist Board, John Lynch. “With tropical weather year round, there are a myriad of choices that allow couples to have experiences that are budget-friendly, extravagant and everything in-between. Jamaica is ideal for lovers. ”
