Of the millions of things that attract tourists to Jamaica, I promise you, ganja is not one of them... and if it is, they are going to be very disappointed because the Jamaican Police have a low tolerance for ganja-smoking tourists.

Apart from the fact that Jamaica is one of the mot beautiful islands in the world (Christopher Columbus considered it to be ?the fairest isle that eyes have beheld?), its proximity to the United States makes it very attractive to tourists who do not have a lot of money to spend, but with the exchange rate at JA$68: US$1, they can afford to go to Montego Bay for $450 or Negril for $350 or Ocho Rios for $400. With that amount of money, they are guaranteed a relaxing or fun-filled weekend. Of course, price is relative. For the super liberated, for that amount of money, you can enjoy only one night at Hedonism hotel in Negril, famous for its nude beach.

North Americans are attracted to Jamaica because the temperature is above 70 degrees year-round, and they can tolerate that for a few days. Those living in the warmer states could go to Miami, but the same $450 will barely cover hotel accommodation for the weekend.

To answer your question properly though, the natural things that attract tourists would be: Dunn?s River Falls, Negril Beaches, Doctors Cave Beach, James Bond Beach, the Blue Lagoon and the Green Grotto Caves; and the man made things would be: the Bob Marley Museum, Nine Miles, his birthplace, the Jamaican Carnival, the Boston Jerk Festival, Junkanoo Christmas celebration, Dolphin Cove, the Mo?Bay Under seas tours, visiting Firefly and the Rose Hall Great Houses, and the Aquasol Theme Park.

Hope I was able to "enlighten" you about the attractions of Jamaica. See you there! ?

The beautiful sunset over the ocean, the crystal blue water, nice cool breeze, beautiful trees, beautiful people, great food, nice weather, great music and entertainment, nice hotels, great attractions such as Dunn's River Falls, The Blue Mountains, Green Grotto Cave, Lovers Leap, Rose Hall Great House, National Heroes Park.

Mr. Jamaica
In terms of natural attractions, the biggest attractions are:-

Dunn's River Falls

The seven mile beach at Negril

The Blue Lagoon in Port Antonio

River rafting (all over the island)

Beaches (all over the island)

The Blue Mountains, Lover's Leap and numerous waterfalls.

In terms of man made attractions, there are lots of bars playing reggae and dancehall music (Rick's cafe in negril and the margaritaville chain are some of the more famous examples), unique Jamaican food, great houses from the colonial era, the old pirate city of Port Royal ( which was the setting for the Pirates of the Caribbean films.
