It is also the third largest of the other islands that are a part of the Greater Antilles within the Caribbean. Jamaica has a rich and diverse culture, with many attractions that makes the country a greatly known tourist attraction.

To just mention a few of the attractions we can look at the 7 miles of white sand beach in Negril, which is found on the north-western coast and Dunnís River Falls which is near Ocho Rios, which many more in the surrounding areas such as River Tubing, Bob Marley Museum, etc. Being in Jamaica you will have access to a wide array of delicious dish such as rice and peas, ackee and salt fish, jerk chicken and pork, curried goat, etc.

Jamaica was made known all over the world by reggae stars such as Jimmy Cliff and late Bob Marley. Fans of Bob Marley are drawn to the country to visit his former home. Just as the country attracts tourists, buyers looking for properties are also drawn to Jamaica.

There are a wide variety of property types for sale in Jamaica, from large properties like 4 bedrooms or more, to 2 bedroom apartments. Jamaican real estate can be mostly found near the beach, urban and rural areas or on the slopes of hills and mountains.
