Jamaica has again reaffirmed its position as a top travel destination, having been voted the “Best Caribbean Destination” by readers of the leading U.S. travel industry magazine Travel Weekly in its eighth annual Readers Choice Awards. The award was announced on Thursday, December 16 at a gala dinner at New York City’s Plaza Hotel.

Jamaica edged its regional counterparts Aruba, Barbados, Dominican Republic, St. Lucia as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands to win the award for the second consecutive year.

“Jamaica is delighted to once again receive this top honor by readers of Travel Weekly. This award is testimony to our ongoing efforts to enhance the quality of Jamaica’s tourism industry, with continuous product development and expansion of our attraction offerings,” remarked Jamaica’s Director of Tourism John Lynch. “We look forward to continuing to boost our appeal to travelers by offering the region’s best and most comprehensive tourism product.”

Jamaica’s variety of accommodations, along with its more than 150 attractions continue to broaden the island’s appeal. This combined with convenient nonstop airlift makes Jamaica easily accessible from a number of major markets across the United States.
