    What an honor to visit this house and studio part of Bob Marley's life. Our guide Nicolas was funny, passisonate, explained well and make us feel the vibes and atmosphere of the place. Great moment!

    This was such an interesting place to visit.
    So much history to learn, all the rooms are beautiful!
    Our guide Barbara was so knowledgeable and very lovely. She even gave us a sweet mango from the tree.
    There is also lots of places to eat and shops.
    We had the most delicious coffee after our tour.
    The Devon House ice-cream is very good too.
    Highly recommended if you are in Kingston!

    Took a juta tour (Fitzroy best driver) to blue mountain - Old Tavern Coffee Estate, air was refreshing, view was amazing, hike was great excercise. The person to give the tour did not show, so there was a substitute. He gave a great tour, especially when the clouds descended on us. We paid the wrong person, so the tour guide didnt get the tip he deserved. The tour ended with a great cup of coffee. We had lunch on our way down the mountain at Crystal Edge / Cafe Blue. The food was good and view breath taking.

    If you are remotely curious about where reggae music was born or where Bob Marley spent his youth, you have to go to Trench Town. I contacted Sophia through the Trench Town Culture Yard website and she responded right away. I got to the Culture Yard by taxi from my hotel in downtown Kingston and Sophia arranged for her son Kash to give me a tour. You can choose from three tour options - I picked the priciest one (USD 30) that includes a tour of the Culture Yard and all the blocks of Trench Town. As a Bob Marley fan, this was a bucket list item for me.

    We enjoyed seeing the Fort. Our guide was knowledgeable. We were the only ones there. Hopefully others came later in the day!

    As proof of our high opinion of the trip to Holywell, my wife and I felt that the 3-hours we spent there, which included a 1-hour hike on part of the Oatly Mountain Trail, lunch at the Blue Brew Bistro and the overall views in the park area justified the 3 1/2 hour drive from Ocho Rios on the scenic route (the old road to Kingston) and the 2 1/2 hour ride back using the Chinese-built toll highway. No way we would have (or could have) driven this route ourselves, particularly the last 20+ kilometers between Kingston and Holywell (one hour up and 50 minutes down) - a super-twisty, narrow road with some unexpected challenges such as a segment where a recent landslide left a narrow way through. Fortunately, we had Orando Comes, a driver recommended by the Jamaica Inn. There were some imperfections. The signage leading to the hike was somewhat deficient and wasted a half-hour. The Blue Brew Bistro on the site was on the pricey side, at least for us paying in US dollars at a rate of 125 Jamaican for 1 dollar - but adequate and convenient. A full and satisfying day. The hiking would probably not be enjoyable (or possible) in wet weather. The vast majority of visitors were picnicking Jamaicans.

    Finally reached, secured parking facility. bathroom/changing facilities available. Tables/benches provided under trees along with Food trucks nearby {vendor accepts cash/card} . They're is also a kids choices on the menus which are fairly displayed along with prices. You can also take food unto the property. There are also swings i surely enjoyed that one :) so have fun. The property has not completed renovations as yet as we could still see the bulldozer driving along, but this is not done close to the beach area.

    Music provided along beach and a bar for those who want to chill n' drink.
    Life guards along the beach and security, no peddlers seen but upon exiting i saw one maybe the designated "nuts" man. Beach beds on rental $500, no umbrellas as yet though. Admission is $300 adults and $100/150 kids (not too sure on this)

    The beach area is clean and no sargasso weeds along the shore or the swim area. It was a wonderful day out, even though it rained but not for long. I would definately go back there.

    My 2 recommendations, not asking for much is for them to build a path/trail from the changing room to the entrance/exit that you don't get sand back on your feet or for persons with special needs and for them to place a low pipe to wash the sand off your foot when you reach the gate.

    Big campus with lots of green space; small bookstore mostly carrying locally published books and with a gifts section; very highly ranked university with great researchers.

    We went to the Little Theatre to watch a pantomime called "All Aboard". For the past 77 years the Little Theatre Movement has staged this national pantomime. The pantomime highlights contemporary issues weaving a story of love, drama, comedy, music, and movement. It deals with the plight of the Windrush generation, those Britons of Caribbean extraction who settled in the United Kingdom in the 1940s, 50s and 60s and their children.

    Last time we visited here (2012) this historical place was falling apart, and you could walk straight in and see the Giddy House, while wondering if it would fall on your head.

    Happy to report that Fort Charles is now renovated, the place is safe, and for your entrance fee you get your own personal tour guide who will tell you of the history of this place. And it has a lot of history to it, from pirate wrenches to famous English admiral Nelson.

    We enjoyed the tour and the history, including some fort buildings with displays of furniture of those days. And highlight is the Giddy House, a powder and weapons storage building that sank partly into the ground after the last major earthquake of 1907, and is now at an angle. This makes for great pictures where you can play with perspective, and what is straight and what is not!

    Definitely worth a visit if you are in Kingston. Great to do if you come out of Norman Manly airport, it's just 10 minutes from there. Note that the St. Peter Anglican Church next door is also worth a look if it happens to be open!

    Putt N Play was a fairly good placeshift kids entertainment. However, it is no longer in operation. It used to be in close proximity to Emancipation Park.

    The 2017 Season of Dance by the National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica runs from late July to early August, and celebrates 55 years of performance excellence & retention of our music/ dance forms. I am so looking forward to attending this year. Besides being one of the iconic and annual cultural events in our country, the individuals, and indeed the entire production team, are fine ambassadors too, having performed overseas to rave reviews for over half a century.

    The messages and emotions evoked by the powerful choreographies; the varied techniques, whether depicting some current or ancestral dance form; the rhythms - sometimes live, sometimes recorded - over which these well-honed bodies writhe, the strength and flexibility of the dancers; all converge masterfully, making for a world class show.

    I am a proud Jamaican when I see their performances, and am delighted too when my guests are happy that they attended. Whether it is the Company's early Easter Morning of Movement and Music, or their summer or Christmas seasons of dance, the repertoire is so vast, that on each night there is something different and refreshing, warranting another visit during the season.

    Founding member and now Artistic Director, Barry Moncrieffe has seamlessly carried on a tradition led by the late Rex Nettleford.
