There are two types of travellers – those who want to experience authentic local culture and those who want to stay on a resort. This 13-day tour is for the former, especially with the largest music festival in Jamaica included in that experience. Along with three nights at the lively Reggae Sumfest, you’ll explore the entire island, including a Rastafarian indigenous village, Rick's Café, and the Bob Marley Museum. And with plenty of time to relax you’ll understand why Jamaica’s famous white-sand beaches (including Negril’s “Seven Mile Beach,” often rated one of the top ten beaches in the world) are kind of a big deal.
Arrive in time for a 6pm welcome meeting. Jump right into the action tonight and head out with the group to Reggae Sumfest.
Enjoy free time during the day to relax or for optional activities. Later, get into the groove with an included ticket to Reggae Sumfest.
Take the day for some r&r or check out one of the nearby optional activities. Tonight, get ready for the final party of Reggae Sumfest and dance 'til dawn.
Enjoy a free day to regroup after Reggae Sumfest. Meet new members of the group at an evening welcome meeting.

Travel to Treasure Beach and opt to chill out on the secluded beach or visit the seven waterfalls of YS Falls.
Treasure Beach is not on the average Jamaica tourist's radar, and we hope it stays that way so the long stretches of beach are all yours to explore.

Afterwards, head to Pelican Bar. This quaint island-in-the-sea lounge is like nothing you've ever seen – the setting is on a sand bar about 15 minutes off shore, very idyllic and unique. At Pelican Bar, have lunch, swim and sunbathe.
Travel to the capital city of Kingston. Visit the Bob Marley Museum or opt to visit plenty of historical sights full of Caribbean pirate lore.
While in Kingston, visit the famous Bob Marley Museum to learn about the history of Jamaica's most famous musician. The museum is located at Bob Marley's former residence, and you will be walking in his famous footsteps as you hear his unique and impactful story.
