How Stella Got Her Groove Back
Despite its relatively small population, Jamaica exerts an outsized imprint on global culture. Before booking your trip, you should probably get a taste of Jamaican music by watching Marley, an exhaustive documentary about the great reggae star who became the island's most famous native son. Once you arrive, you'll find plenty of beachside resorts that offer everything from deep sea diving (Dr. No) to exotic intoxicants (Cocktail) to eccentric fellow travelers (Club Paradise). Plus, if you're a lovelorn woman, you'll have ample opportunities to hit the singles circuit, just like Angela Basset in How Stella Got Her Groove Back.
