Kingston Vacations

To get your reggae on in Kingston, Jamaica, check out the Bob Marley Museum on Hope Road. He wasn’t from Kingston itself, but this is where he got his big break, and the museum was once his home and recording studio in the city. For more contemporary beats head to Emancipation Park, which offers free concerts in the summer and at Christmas, or Lime ... Read more
Kay beach, which at weekends is a banging party destination off the coast of Port Royal (you can camp overnight here if you pre-arrange a pick-up). Port Royal, once known as the “Richest and wickedest city in the world,” was a notorious pirate haven in the seventeenth century until it was destroyed by an earthquake. Make sure to visit the museum to learn more about the area’s history. If you need to cool off, Devon House – some of Jamaica’s most distinctive architecture – has the most famous ice cream shop on the island.

Weather

Like many of the islands in the Caribbean, Jamaica is blessed with gorgeous weather year-round. Temperatures hardly ever rise above or below perfect beach weather, staying between the mid-70s and upper-80s ... Read more
(23-31). The island sees the most visitors in the winter from mid-December through mid-April, when northerners flee bad winter weather back home. Visiting during this time of the year means more crowds and higher prices, so be sure to book your hotel far in advance, especially around Christmas. For lower prices, head here in April and May before the summer rains hit. You’ll save the biggest bucks over the summer, but it comes with a different price: heavy rainfall and the potential for a hurricane.

Residents of Kingston are nice and enjoy living life to the fullest.
Many areas here if you want to relax or get into a big adventure by land or in the water.
Food is great. Real food people make with real ingredients no fast food and full of preservatives fillings here.
Even the soda is made with sugar, not high fructose corn syrup.
Hey Mon, relax, enjoy a Red Stripe.

I may be biased because my family is from Kingston its outlying suburbs.....but, not really because it is just an awesometastic town! If you haven't been to a hole in the wall club before, going to one in Kingston will turn your favor towards these kinds of joints! First, the DJ's are the originals and will give you something to laugh and dance about. Furthermore if you are near the Portmore are you can go to the beach easily and get some festival and fish. You may even see some people doing things in the water that they probably shouldn't as they are still in public....*smile*....but this is the magic of this city! There are endless things to do like go to Devon House to get some world class ice cream, get a fresh hair do for a fraction of the cost, or eat at some savory restaurants...but my favorite place? THE MARKET, the weekends at the market is great! Get to Kingston, don't believe the hype on danger, but BE CAREFUL! Most importantly, HAVE FUN!
