Posted on Jan 23, 2023|By Kaylee Heneisen

Is traveling more on your list of goals for 2023? If so, we can't think of a better start to your travels than a trip to Jamaica! From lush rainforests and breathtaking waterfalls to lively cities and beautiful beaches, Jamaica has it all.  

Frontier flies into two airports that you can choose from when visiting the island. The first airport is Sangster International Airport (MBJ), which is located in Jamacia's third-largest city. When flying into this location, you can choose to stay in Montego Bay or travel to the various popular resort locations such as Negril, Ocho Rios, and the South Coast. Frontier also flies into the capital city of Kingston at Norman Manley International Airport (KIN). Kingstone lies on the southeast coast and is home to many popular attractions. KIN is located near the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park as well as Port Antonio.  

Jamaica is a land of beauty and fun, and there's no shortage of things to do here! Today, we are going to explore some well-known Jamaica attractions.

Did you know you can swim on horseback throughout Montego Bay? The Chukka Horseback Ride & Swim is a popular attraction that allows guests to ride horseback into the deep waters of the bay. Guests start with a trail ride to get comfortable on horseback, switch horses, then head to the beach to go swimming!

How could you visit Jamaica and not visit a Bob Marley-themed attraction? Kingston is home to the Bob Marley Museum. The museum is designed in what was once Bob Marley's home and contains many of his items and memorabilia. Bob had initially purchased the property in 1975 and lived there until 1981. Before the tour, guests can visit the One Love Café for a meal or snack. The museum includes a record shop, an 80-seat theater, as well as a gift shop. This museum is the perfect addition to your trip for any music or Marley lover!

Looking for a relaxing afternoon? Go river rafting on the Martha Brae River! The Martha Brae is one of the two rivers in Jamaica famous for their river rafting experiences (the other being The White River, which has more rapids and is more suitable for tubing). During this experience, you would lounge on 30-foot bamboo rafts as you lazily float down the cool waters and enjoy the scenery. Kids as young as 4 years old are welcome, as long as they can remain seated on the raft.
