This post is also available in: esEspañol (Spanish)

Jamaica is a Caribbean country known for its music and unique lifestyle, with plenty to discover. In February, the sun shines while some of the island’s cultural festivals begin to kick off. It’s a month when you’ll find music in the streets, concerts and festivals. Across the entire island there’s a celebration of Jamaican music during the month of February to mark Bob Marley’s birthday on 6 February.

Bob Marley was the first global superstar born in Jamaica. That’s why the island has musical roots that originated in African folk and today bring us the electronic beats of contemporary dancehall. Jamaica is a musical powerhouse; music is life in Jamaica, and it won’t take long to let yourself get swept up in it.

Music is a very important element of Jamaican culture, especially reggae music. This genre of music is literally the island’s soundtrack. You can find important events if you like reggae music; as the locals put it, it’s a celebration of love for the country through its “riddims”.


What to do on holiday in Runaway Bay?

Bob Marley Museum

The Bob Marley Museum is Bob Marley’s former home. It’s located in Kingston, the capital of Jamaica. It is the home the artist lived in until 1981, where you can see different objects that he used during his life. This museum features decoration and objects that had spiritual significance for the artist. Visitors can also see the different areas of the house, the hammock where the musician sought inspiration or, the most surprising element, the “shot room” full of bullet holes, where he and his wife were almost killed in an assassination attempt.

The Tuff Gong recording studio was also located here, where the establishment got its name. It’s a must-see if you’re on the island.

This place is so important that in 2001 it was declared a national heritage site and was granted more protection from the government. Because beyond its tourist appeal, Bob Marley is a symbol of Rastafari culture and a Jamaican icon.

Montego Bay

This area of the island is one of the major tourist hot spots. It’s a lively, cheerful coastal city. But you’ll also find plenty of local life in this area: the car horns, people and hustle and bustle offer a portrait of Jamaican life. The rhythm Jamaicans move to is life in the street and music.

If you’re thinking of getting to know the locals, we recommend trying Jamaican food. All along Hop Strip you’ll find little stalls where you can eat jerk in the evening.
