Flights to Jamaica
This Caribbean gem is so much more than rum and sandy beaches
Snap up one of our flights to Jamaica and enjoy the wide mix of attractions this Caribbean destination has on offer. Laze on the white sand beaches of Negril, swim in Montego Bay (Mo' Bay to locals) or stroll through the plentiful coffee plantations.
Music is a huge part of Jamaican culture and the island boasts some of the best reggae acts on the planet. It even has its own dedicated festival, Reggae Sumfest, which lights up Mo’ Bay in mid-July. Or head down to Margaritaville, where you'll see steel bands and limbo dancers in most bars and clubs.
