Why Jamaica Is The Best Destination For Holidays
Jamaica is a Caribbean Island country that is famed for its beautiful reef-lined beaches, mountains, and rainforests. It is also home to reggae music and the Bob Marley Museum. The various races and culture have affected the language spoken in Jamaica, but the common language is English. However, they have a dialect that is formed by the amalgamation of words from different languages and English. This is known as Jamaican Patios or Creole, and it is widely spoken in Jamaica. Kingston is the largest and the capital city of Jamaica, and it is located on the southeastern coast of the Island.
The weather in Jamaica is vacation friendly as there are a warm tropical sun and a few chances of rainfall. The average temperature in Jamaica is between 80 °F and 90 °F (27 °FCelsius-29 °Celsius).

They, however, have a hurricane season, which starts from June to November, but the Island has been hit by just a few of them.
Jamaica has a problem with crime, especially the Kingston area, but it doesn’t have a significant impact on the tourists.
