Highlights

On the weekends, volunteers in Jamaica are spoiled for choice in terms of travel opportunities. The Blue Mountains, YS Falls, Dunns River Falls, the Bob Marley Museum, Outameni Experience, and Treasure Beach are popular weekend or day trips from Mandeville.

There are many paradise beaches awaiting you in places like Ocho Rios, Negril, Montego Bay, and Port Antonio. Water sports and activities like diving, snorkeling, and river tubing and rafting are popular around the entire coast. Or you can choose to just chill in a hammock and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.

No trip to Jamaica is complete without experiencing the vibrant music scene. Echoes of Jamaicas most famous citizen, Bob Marley, will undoubtedly follow you everywhere on the island and spectacular music festivals take place throughout the year.
