Blue Mountain

bluemountainShrouded almost perpetually by mists that give Jamaica's highest mountains their bluish color, the Blue Mountain range sprawls across the eastern portion of the island for a length of 28 miles and an average width of about 12 miles. They rise steeply in an area so compact that it is possible to drive from the coastal plains to an elevation of over 7,000 feet in less than an hour. The Blue Mountains of east St.Andrew stretch from the north-eastern edge of Kingston, inwards and upwards through the lush and beautiful countryside towards Blue Mountain Peak itself. More Info

To get to Blue Mountain, you will have to Hike. It's a very great adventure.

Bob Marley Museum

bob_marleyBob's story is that of an archetype, which is why it continues to have such a powerful and ever-growing resonance: it embodies political repression, metaphysical and artistic insights, gangland warfare and various periods of mystical wilderness. And his audience continues to widen: to westerners Bob's apocalyptic truths prove inspirational and life-changing; the impact of which goes beyond the Third World. His work stretched across nearly two decades and yet still remains timeless and universal. Bob Marley gave the world brilliant and evocative music. Bob Marley & the Wailers worked their way into the very fabric of our lives. More Info

Port Royal

portroyalPort Royal was a city located at the end of the Palisadoes at the mouth of the Kingston Harbour, in southeastern Jamaica. Founded in 1518, it was the centre of shipping commerce in the Caribbean Sea during the latter half of the 17th century. It was destroyed by an earthquake in 1692 and subsequent fires, hurricanes, flooding, epidemics and another earthquake in 1907. After the 1692 disaster, Port Royal's commercial role was steadily taken over by the town (and later, city) of Kingston. Current plans for Port Royal will redevelop the small fishing town into a tourist destination serviced by cruise ships with archaeological findings at the heart of the attractions. More Info
