Best of Jamaica

8 Days FROM AUD 2,425

Overview

Explore beautiful, colourful and vibrant Jamaica on this 8-day tour that takes you beyond the must-see highlights, to discover the rich culture and powerful musical beat of this fascinating Caribbean island. Surrounded by crystal-clear waters, the reef-lined white sandy beaches stretch endlessly along the island’s unspoiled rugged coastline, before rising up to rainforest-clad mountains from which cascading waterfalls tumble. Immerse yourself in the culture as you learn how to speak Jamaican patois and cook traditional Creole cuisine. Take a tour of an indigenous Rastafarian village, relax on Negril’s Seven Mile Beach, enjoy dinner with locals in Montego Bay and sway to the reggae beat as you sip on Jamaican rum. Jamaica is the birthplace of reggae and an island where music is life!

Sustainability

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:

1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.

2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.

3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.

4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.

5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel. Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.
