On my first Jamaica vacation, I was so excited...I could not wait for the plane to land. As I exited the aircraft, the moist Jamaica heat embraced me…unmistakably tropical!
Although Kingston Jamaica was our main location, my first step one of Jamaica’s sugary white sand beaches was at Doctor’s Cave Montego Bay…so amazing!
Montego Bay - With beach sunbathing done for the day, we went for a walk along the “hip strip” (Gloucester Avenue Montego Bay), checking out the various attractions along the way – we discovered among others, Aquasol Beach Park at one end of the Avenue and a Bird Sanctuary at the other.
Soon we were exhausted and hungry and went in search of food. We chose a restaurant from the many on the “hip strip” and our ackee and salt fish brunch (Jamaica’s national dish) link was delish...yum yum!
Negril - Next we checked out the activities in Negril for a couple of days; then a visit to Ocho Rios and the famous Dunn’s River Falls. Port Antonio was next on the agenda where we had fantastic visits to Frenchman’s Cove Beach, San San and Winifred Beaches.
St Elizabeth - a trip to Jamaica’s south coast was a must so laid-back Treasure Beach St Elizabeth was the next stop. Before we knew it, 8 days had slipped away.
Kingston - The last couple of days were spent in Kingston checking out a few sites - Devon House, Bob Marley Museum, Port Royal and Lime Cay Beach.Find the best Kingston activities here
We enjoyed visiting the Fort at Port Royal and had some delicious seafood at Gloria’s Restaurant. Our last excursion before leaving Jamaica was to Lime Cay, a tiny Caribbean Island beach off Port Royal. That was me…now it’s your turn!
