The people of Jamaica are smiling and kind. They love the slower way of life and appreciate more the gathering of friends and family. Music and dance are at the heart of the culture. It’s exuded often in the form of festivals. Carnival is essentially a massive party on the island. Goers adorn themselves in colorful, feathered garb and dance in the streets. If you’re a coffee fanatic, the Jamaican Coffee Festival brings some of the world’s best beans together in one place. Of course, no Jamaican festival would be complete without reggae. International Reggae Day celebrates Jamaican hero, Bob Marley. If you visit Jamaica, “don’t worry about a thing. Everything will be alright.”
