Do: Relax, mon! at the Reggae Xplosion Museum You can't visit Jamaica without getting into reggae. The birthplace of the chill, off-beat music, Jamaica pays homage to the genre with the Reggae Xplosion Museum in Ocho Rios. Located in the Island Village Shopping Center, the museum features music clips, photos, paraphernalia, and even a recreated music studio.
Stay: Riu Ocho Rios-All Inclusive Huge, even among mega-resorts, the 846-room Riu is more about quantity than quality: seven restaurants, six bars, three pools, a nightclub, a private beach surging with water sports, and hordes of guests raring to party. It offers a solid value and is a short drive from the museum.
