Jamaica | There's a magic quality at GoldenEye in Jamaica that has, for decades, attracted creatives of all stripes. Fleming, who suffered from writer's block, created the James Bond character while at GoldenEye - and wrote another Bond adventure during every winter. Sting wrote the hit, Every Breath You Take and Bono wrote the theme song to the GoldenEye film while there.

Jamaica | For an authentic Jamaican jerk experience, head to Scotchies in Montego Bay. This rustic and casual outdoor restaurant has the best Jamaican jerk chicken and pork - the combination of their unique seasoning and the meat being cooked over pimento tree wood creates a mouth-watering barbecue flavor! Side options include rice and peas, yams, roasted breadfruit or sweet potatoes, and wash it down with an ice cold Red Stripe Beer. Delicious! ~ Lauren Tavares, Destination Specialist

Guests at this resort are able to enjoy the restaurants, entertainment and other amenities at Sandals Ochi Beach Resort. ~ Amy Comparato, Brand Director

Jamaica | When it comes to romance, few destinations deliver the way Jamaica does. Just ask Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who were photographed together early in their courtship while attending a wedding at Round Hill Hotel & Villas in Montego Bay. Plus, the resort is home to an incredible spa, situated in a restored 18th-century plantation house with 10 acres of emerald-green, beachfront lawn. Popular options include the Rendezvous Package, which includes a couple's massage, Taster Facial and a signature foot treatment and pedicure. To really up the romance quotient, book the Spa at Sunset Package, which offers a couple's massage, and champagne and a fruit or cheese platter served on the Welcome Wharf pier.

Jamaica | Don't miss out on a trip to the Blue Hole ... not only is the water crystal clear and the waterfalls are beautiful but, it's a thrilling adventure as well. After hiking to the top - you jump your way down the falls from rocks anywhere from three feet to 22 feet high. There is even a rope swing and underwater cave. Be sure to hand over your cell phone or camera to your guide, our guide took pictures and video of every climb and jump and had such a different perspective from pictures we would have taken ourselves. ~ Chenoa Hopkins, Marketing Project Manager.

Jamaica | For a peaceful retreat in the Caribbean, consider the still-sleepy village of Negril with an unhurried laid back atmosphere among golden sunsets and old-school charm. Bask in a variety of homestyle street eats from curried goat and steamed fish with bammy at Pushcart Restaurant and blackened mahi-mahi with mango chutney at the cliffside Rockhouse Restaurant to pimento wood-smoked jerk chicken, pork and fish at Miss Lily's and Jamaican staples of ackee and saltfish at Public House. Boasting incredible sunset views, Rick's Cafe is located at the top of a 35-foot high cliff, where adventurous travelers can jump from or visit the secret Blackwell Rum Bar at The Caves, entering through a coral staircase and across a wooden footbridge to sip cocktails nestled in the limestone nooks.
