Christopher Columbus once described Jamaica, the third-largest Caribbean island, as “the fairest isle that eyes have beheld.” It’s hard to argue with his assessment, especially if you swim in the dramatic Blue Lagoon, trek the Blue Mountains or laze on the sands of Seven Mile Beach. See it for yourself and plan a romantic boutique escape, private family getaway or an all-inclusive resort holiday at one of these top hotels.
