JAMAICA! looking for good hikes and dives

Good morning all!!

I am going to Jamaica in November and was wondering if anyone has been and can share some recommendations.  Are there any hikes or good places to dive.  I am trying to plan ahead so that I can refresh my diving skills if necessary 🙂  I have tried researching some hikes, but it's difficult to find.

Hi @lindzzzloo - How amazing to hear you're headed to Jamaica! November will be such an incredible time for a visit. I have spent some time there in the past and have always enjoyed it — the biodiversity left a big impression on me!

One trail I would suggest looking into is the Blue Mountain Peak Hike. It is fairly strenuous, so take a look at the details before making your plans. That hike is located within the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park, which has a lot of opportunities for smaller hikes as well. 

Watch Hill Trail is another nice hike that follows a river and is an out and back, so you can easily do as much of it as you would like. 

I have never gone diving there, so don't have any recommendations to pass on for that, but am hopeful some other travelers in the community will be able to share their suggestions. 

Hopefully this helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

Very helpful!  Thank you so much for the recommendations.  I am definitely going to look into those.  We are there for an entire week, so we will at least have one full day to plan for hiking activities :))
