Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean. Despite being a small nation, Jamaican culture has a strong global presence. Its vibrant urban recording industry gave birth to the musical genres of reggae, dub, ska, rocksteady, and most recently dancehall and ragga. The island is also famous for Jamaican jerk spice as well as home to Red Stripe beer and Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee. The tourist infrastructure is well-developed, especially in the popular destinations of Negril, Montego Bay, and Ocho Rios, where white-sand beaches meet the crystal clear Caribbean Sea.
