1. Relax on the beach. A few of our favorites include Cornwall Beach (at Montego Bay), Negril's Seven Mile Beach, Winifred Beach, and Treasure Beach (along Jamaica's South Coast).

2. Take a tour of Rose Hall Great House, a beautifully restored 18th-century property. The spooky night tour is a must for ghost hunters and concludes with a 'Witches Brew' cocktail at Rose Hall's Dungeon Bar.

3. Climb aboard a luxury catamaran for an unforgettable Caribbean sunset dinner cruise.

4. Stay at a romantic hotel or resort. There's a long list of Jamaica properties that rank as the top hotels in the world, from overwater bungalows at Sandals Royal Caribbean to luxurious lagoon cottages at GoldenEye resort.

5. Visit the Blue Hole to have a Tarzan-like swimming experience. Think rope swings, nature trails, and cascading waterfalls.

6. Enjoy a rejuvenating spa experience. Top options include Couples Sans Souci with their oceanside spa gazebo and FieldSpa at Goldeneye Resort, tucked away in a cottage on the edge of the GoldenEye Lagoon.

7. Enjoy fine dining at one of Jamaica's best restaurants. Sugar Mill Restaurant is set on a former sugar plantation, while Rockhouse Restaurant offers jaw-dropping views and amazing ambiance with its cliffside setting.

9. Visit the National Gallery of Jamaica to view an impressive collection of modern and contemporary art from Jamaica.

12. Go bobsledding at Mystic Mountain Adventure Park in Ocho Rios.

13. Visit Rick's Cafe in Negril, one of the most famous restaurants in Jamaica. You'll catch an amazing sunset while watching thrill-seekers jump off the nearby cliffs.

16. Indulge in Jamaican specialties like jerk chicken. Notable eateries include Pork Pit in Montego Bay, and Scotchies (which has several different locations).

18. Head to the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston for a guided tour of the reggae legend's former home.

19. Explore Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park. Just an hour from Kingston, Jamaica's only national park is home to lush terrain, soaring mountains, incredible hiking trails, waterfalls, and abundant wildlife.
