One of the main points of interests and great things to do in Jamaica is to enjoy their natural wonders.

Jamaica is rich in flora and fauna cradled in the beautiful landscapes and beaches. Exploring this beautiful island was truly a privilege.

I’ve learned how the locals try to protect their beloved country during our visit.

Protecting Jamaica is not just the responsibility of locals and government officials, tourists must also make that conscious effort in promoting for ecotourism.

During our visit to the island, we’ve experienced great examples of preserving and upholding ecotourism.
