The jerk chicken and festival was delicious. Our tour guy took us there before returning to our resort. He wanted us to experience the "real" jerk. The chicken was very moist and yummy.

I wouldn’t walk there after dark probably but we stayed at the HI and walked there during the day. It’s probably a 10 minute walk if that. Definitely a must try!
