Hollywood film directors, drawn by Jamaica's beauty, have used it as a setting for many films, including Cocktail, Blue Lagoon, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Island in the Sun, Dr. No, Live and Let Die, Return to Treasure Island, Mighty Quinn, Wide Sargasso Sea and How Stella Got Her Groove Back.
Jamaica's athletes have won more than 75 Olympic medals over the years, including gold medals at the London, Beijing and Rio Olympics courtesy of the record-breaking speed of Usain Bolt. The most surprising sport is bobsledding: Despite the fact that the island has no ice or snow, its two-man bobsled team ranked 10th in the 1992 Winter Olympics.
Jamaicans call the speed bumps on the roads "sleeping policemen."
Jamaica has 635 mi/1,022 km of coastline, with a beach around every bend and nestled in every cove.
Couples can be married 24 hours after arriving in Jamaica if prior application has been made for a marriage license and notarized birth certificates have been produced. No blood tests required.
Jamaica is listed in Guinness World Records as having more churches per square mile/kilometer than any other country. Parish churches welcome tourists at Sunday morning Mass, but mind the strictly enforced dress code.
