Playlist: Jamaican Reggae

Playlist: Jamaican Reggae

Spicy rum, mellow beats and positive vibes. These are a few of Jamaica’s favorite things.

Ready to explore a place that can turn the most stressed out executive into a chilled out islander? It’s easy, mon. Book a flight and throw on your headphones. We’ve got the perfect playlist to get you there.

Music is a way of life in Jamaica. Whether it’s bongos on the beach or reggae pumping out of the speakers at a local restaurant or bar, this is a country that’s always on tempo. The happy beats rub off on its people, too. This isn’t the isle of “no problems” for nothin’.

Dancing, laughing and singing together is common pastime, making the nightlife abundant and lively. Pair that with the beautiful beaches, the tastiest jerk chicken you’ve ever had and a coconut drink and you’ll be wondering why everyone doesn’t do life this way.

We’re jammin’. Don’t you like jammin’ too? Get the playlist here.
