Jamaica Luxury Tours – Beginning in the 16th century, Jamaica was the nexus of the brutal Caribbean economy that saw slaves from Africa producing sugar and rum for Europe and America. First a colony of Spain and later Britain, today’s Jamaica is the result of this grim past. No Caribbean country has greater links to Africa, whether food, culture or politics. The ubiquitous sound of the island, reggae, is drawn from African folk music and is the nation’s greatest export (the studios of Kingston churn out 500 tunes a month). And tunes blasting are just one of the cacophonous features of this heavily populated island where wildly popular, and often hedonistic, resorts mix with urban life in all its raucous, ganja-scented glory.
