Jamaica Vacation Offers for Rescued Chilean Miners

The Jamaican government has extended an invitation for a free vacation to the 33 Chilean miners who were rescued from their 69-day ordeal underground.

Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett announced the offer in Kingston. Calling the rescue a miracle, Bartlett said the offer included the miners' spouses and the rescuers who helped bring the 33 up from the earth's depths this week after more than two months trapped in a northern Chilean copper and gold mine.

"It is fitting and appropriate that we in Jamaica extend a loving hand to our brothers and sisters in South America who endured such a demanding ordeal, yet emerged victorious despite all odds," he said.

The miners have become global media stars since their widely watched rescue, and have been showered with job offers and gifts, including invitations to visit the Greek isles and Elvis Presley's Graceland mansion in Tennessee, as well as to attend European soccer matches.

Aside from the miners, the island is all set to welcome the visitors from around the globe who come here during the high season. Jamaica rentals comprising private villas, cottages and apartments are high on the accommodation list of people for their affordability, ideal locations and services.
