Kingston is the capital city of the Caribbean island of Jamaica. Flights to Kingston typically land at the Norman Manley International Airport, which is located on the Southeastern side of the island. Visitors who have booked their cheap flights to Kingston can take one of the taxis outside the arrival terminal to their hotel. You can also use a hotel pick up service like that at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, which will meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel.
In Kingston, getting around is easy by taking one of the local taxis which should be properly licensed and have a red PPV plate. Taxis with these plates are licensed by the transportation authority to take passengers. But if you want to experience the vibrancy of the city of Kingston then take a trip on one of the many Jamaica transport authority buses which services routes all across the city. Local buses can be caught at any of the bus stops along the city roads.
To explore Kingston you can hire Sun tours who offer guided tours of the island capital. However for those who have taken the effort to find airfare to Kingston and wish to explore on your own then no visit to Kingston is complete without visiting the home of Reggae legend Bob Marley. The Bob Marley Museum gives visitors a glimpse into the life of the reggae legend.
Devon House, located on Hope Road is another site of interest. This historical house was built in the 17th century and guided tours of the property are offered daily. No tour to Devon House is complete unless you visit the shops there, ranging from an Ice cream shop to craft items. Another not so explored place is the famous harbor of Port Royal, located just south of Kingston and was made famous by the Pirate Captain Henry Morgan.
You can shop for gift items at Things Jamaican located at Devon House, or visit Constant Spring shopping plaza and explore the New Kingston Shopping Center for a wide selection of shops. For dining options you can choose from an elegant meal at Jonkonno Lounge located inside the Hilton Hotel in New Kingston or take in local fare at Norma’s on the Terrace at Devon House.
If you booked your Kingston flights to experience the vibrant nightlife then Asylum night club is for you. This nightclub located in New Kingston is one of the local hotspots that is frequently visited by tourists and locals alike.
