In October 2009 I was in Jamaica and I have to say that I loved it!! It's one of the places I would definitely go back to. The authentic jungle mountains and the beautiful beaches were like paradise! The village of Bob Marley, 8 miles, I love it and I had a great time! Just as much as the Dunn's River Falls!
Half Moon Beach is located in the north of the Caribbean island of Jamaica about 14 kilometers from the city of Montego Bay. This water bathes the famous beach, which gives its name to the 5 star Deluxe complex known as: Hotel Half Moon, A RockResort, the beach is about a mile long. The beach is composedof fine white sand, lapped by the Caribbean Sea with its clear blue waters. In addition to having some trees, there are shady areas where you are able to avoid the sweltering heat of Jamaica. In my case I loved the hotel and also that they put at our dispoal a kind of palm-leaf palapas istead of the usual loungers and parasols for us to be able to relax a little in the sun. Personally of the Caribbean places I've been to my favorite has been Punta Cana, as tourism in Jamaica is mainly American a big problem due to the language and the English character of the people which is not as nice or friendly as the oeople are in Punta Cana, Cuba or Mayan Riviera.
When you arrive here you can see the lush nature surrounding Somerset Falls in Montego Bay (Jamaica), a local group encouraged the our hiking group to join in with the rhythm of a reggae tune. With just a guitar and maracas, the Rastafarians who inhabited that place welcomed us. It was time to take a breath, donning the suit and proper shoes to enter an intoxicating landscape full of raging water, lush mangroves and locals which swept out to sea in small ponds and waterfalls plummet. The experience was certainly worth it.
