Q:

Where is the best place for a tropical cycling vacation?

I want to go on a road and mountain biking vacation in the tropics. What do you recommend?

A:Blue Mountains, Jamaica
If you stand on the highest point of the 7,400-foot Blue Mountains on a clear day, you can see almost the entire length of Jamaica. Considering that its tallest ridges lie barely more than 10 miles from the coastline, you get an idea of how precipitous its jungle-laden slopes are. Blue Mountain Bicycle Tours leads three-hour downhill rides that switchback on pavement from top to bottom. The ride isn't challenging, but the scenery as you descend through alpine jungle zones makes the trip completely worthwhile. Bonus: you get to end the day with a waterfall swim. Tours start at $98.
