Visitors can 'get happy in Jamaica' with new destination deal
Published on February 7, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Sunday night's Volkswagen Super Bowl 2013 commercial showed how happy people can be when they tap into their inner Jamaican spirit. VW's commercial featured an office worker in the US speaking with a Jamaican accent and background music by renowned Jamaican musician Jimmy Cliff, who sings his version of "Come On, Get Happy."

Now everyone can experience happiness on island as the country has launched a Get Happy in Jamaica destination-wide package for visitors to enjoy savings through the spring. This special deal offers a free night on hotel stays, based on three- to five-night bookings.

The Jamaica Tourist Board has teamed up with 20 participating hotel properties for this exclusive promotion, available for booking by March 15, for travel April 1 – June 30, 2013. Accommodations range from luxury resorts and boutique hotels to beach clubs and historic properties.
