  • Jamaica’s capital is a city full of people, motor vehicles, noise and pollution. With 691,600 natives, it is the largest English-speaking city south of Miami. A tourist traveling to Jamaica to escape the hustle and bustle may find Kingston to be a disappointment. However, a visitor looking for historical sites, great food and lively music will be more than content with this eclectic city.
  • This harborside city is located on Jamaica’s southeast coastline and boasts scenery that is nothing more than spectacular. In the distance, the Blue Mountains reach the heavens and the countryside is dotted with coffee plantations.
  • On the contrary, downtown is a bustling business district with skyscrapers. The older districts are dispersed throughout the city with buildings such as Devon House mansion, a 19th-century, million-dollar house.
  • The Bob Marley Museum at the reggae legend’s former home is the city’s famed attraction. Highlights include the singer’s bedroom with Marley’s star-shaped guitar, the bullet holes that still remain from an assassination attempt in 1976, and the tree under which Marley would smoke ganja and play music.
  • Visit the craft market in Kingston's waterfront area set up on the docks for your choice of local artwork.
  • A few blocks westward, the National Gallery displays a complete collection of Jamaican art. Every December it hosts a national exhibition of contemporary art.
  • A hike through the 200,000-acre Blue Mountains National Park is best appreciated when departing from Kingston. This nature sanctuary is home to many exotic plants and animals indigenous to Jamaica.
  • A relaxing day trip to Port Royal is a lovely way to evade the busy, commercial atmosphere of the city. Located across the harbor, Port Royal was once the hideout for pirates and bandits. It is now a slow-paced, fishing village with an abundance of charm.
