Tour description

There are two types of travellers – those who want to experience authentic local culture and those who want to stay on a resort. This 13-day tour is for the former, especially with the largest music festival in Jamaica included in that experience. Along with three nights at the lively Reggae Sumfest, you’ll explore the entire island, including a Rastafarian indigenous village, Rick's Café, and the Bob Marley Museum. And with plenty of time to relax you’ll understand why Jamaica’s famous white-sand beaches (including Negril’s “Seven Mile Beach,” often rated one of the top ten beaches in the world) are kind of a big deal.
