Across the globe, the word Jamaica stimulates images of beautiful turquoise sea, white sand beaches, brilliant sunshine and vibrant people. Our global personality and influence radiate well beyond our size, and when it comes to tourism, our unique appeal and brand attributes are second to none.

It is therefore no surprise that Jamaica’s tourism industry continues to experience growth in the face of increasing competition. The accommodation segment of the industry has attracted a high level of foreign direct investment (FDI). Market leaders such as Sandals, Marriott International, Bahia Principe, Palace Resorts, Iberostar Group, Karisma Hotels, AM Resorts and RIU have significant presence on the island.

In addition to leisure, we welcome business travellers for conferences, corporate events and trade shows.
