Jamaica

Jamaica

Jamaica has a culture that is surrounded by art, dance, folk music, food, people, politics, and religion. Jamaica's ancestors that come from Africa, Europe, and Asia have helped make Jamaica what it is today. They have also made it a multifaceted mosaic of international customs and traditions like it is until this day as well. Jamaica has been welcoming settlers from all over the world for many centuries. It was among the Amerindians who founded the small island now known as Jamaica and the Europeans fought to take it from them. Then it went to Africans who were forced to make Jamaica their home, then to Asians, Indians, and Middle Easterners who were all searching for a better life. Each of these different groups of people contributed to the melting pot of Jamaica with their own stories and traditions. Today Jamaica has such a rich history with many traditions that have all blended together and made into one. 

Jamaica's economy is said to be a developing country and the tourism is always growing. Jamaica is one of the most ideal tourist destinations in the world. Every year there are more than a million visitors that flee to the island of Jamaica for the sun and beauty. The major resort centers include Kingston, Montego bay, Ocho Rios, Negril, Port Antonio, and the South Coast. The island of Jamaica sits almost right in the middle of the Caribbean and of course has the warm sun rays, soft sands, and clear blue waters but also has an interesting history and culture. Most people enjoy their trip to Jamaica for the island's unique character and the inherent of "African-ness" that it has through it's population. Jamaica also has some of the world's finest reefs for diving at Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios.    

There is no other place like Jamaica or no other place in the Caribbean that has the African touch like Jamaica for that matter. The next major part in the New World for the crazy triangular trade that took slaves from Africa to carry sugar and rum to Europe was Kingston. It was in St. Ann's Bay's Marcus Garvey who originally founded the back-to-Africa movement during the 1910's and 1920's. Then just a short decade later was when Rastafarianism took place and reggae came into play in the 1960's and 1970's. Jamaica proclaims pride in it's country due to its unique history, great landscape and interesting culture.
