Jamaica transports travelers with tourists just a click away
The Caribbean destination invites you to live the island experience enjoying its music, gastronomy and drinks without leaving home
Jamaica has developed a virtual care package to encourage the spirit and allow travelers to experience its vibrant culture virtually. Through VisitJamaica's official Instagram and YouTube, the destination offers music, homemade recipes, spa treatments to try at home, as well as games on social networks, recreating for travelers the sights, sounds and flavors of Jamaica, until the right time to travel.
Music lovers can elevate their spirits with the vibrant tunes from Spotify's playlist "Every Little Thing is Gonna Be Alright". This compilation of Jamaica's most beloved songs is a reminder to stay positive, enjoying the hits of Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Beenie Man and many more.
Puzzle Packs, Jamaica's new interactive game on Instagram, invites users to guess a popular location in Jamaica by combining nine pieces to complete the puzzle. A new puzzle challenge will be released each week for a month, in which five lucky winners per week will be chosen for a chance to win a "Vacation Box" filled with items to help them relax and unwind "Jamaican-style." The puzzle packs launched on Thursday, June 11.
Aspiring home chefs and mixologists have the opportunity to try new recipes and cocktails from renowned Jamaican chefs to add a little island flavor to your kitchen. Recreate the quick and tasty Pepper Shrimp Pasta recipe from two-time Food Network Chopped champion Chef Andre Fowles from the comfort of your home. Try the Jamaican twist of cook sisters Suzanne and Michelle Rousseau, with a classic of creamy spicy tomato soup and grilled pepper cheese with pepper jelly on classic hard-dough bread ("hardo").
For virtual happy hours or to celebrate another week of responsible social distancing, try Chef Noel Cunningham's tropical drink. The Canadian teaches how to make his Blue Lagoon cocktail with vodka, Blue Curaçao and lemonade.
Spa aficionados can relax and unwind with sounds of the ocean and a gentle breeze to recreate a luxurious spa atmosphere in the comfort of your home. For a nourishing body scrub, the Brown Sugar and Ron Blackwell scrub applied during a hot bath rejuvenates and leaves skin refreshing. This simple rum infusion recipe combines two cups of brown sugar, half a cup of Blackwell rum and one cup of melted coconut oil to give your skin a smooth and smooth touch.
Through this virtual care package, the Jamaica Tourism Office aims to bring the island to its beloved travelers from around the world until the destination can receive them again in person.
