Introducing Kingston, Blue Mountains & the Southeast Coast

Kingston is Jamaica undiluted and unadulterated, its raw energy contrasting sharply with the languor of resorts and villages elsewhere on the island. The launching pad for some of the world’s most electrifying music, spirited clubs and riotous street-system parties attest that the beat is still alive and bumping. Kingston’s cosmopolitan makeup has given rise to fine international dining but its dynamic galleries and museums remain unapologetically Jamaican.

Kingston is the ideal base for exploring Jamaica’s southeast corner. The region offers the breadth of the Jamaican experience – while there are beaches in easy striking distance of the capital, the island’s history is thrown into relief by the faded pirate glory of Port Royal and the grit of Spanish Town, and the majestic, forest-covered Blue Mountains allow you to escape into nature and hike old Maroon trails or taste a gourmet cup at a working coffee plantation.
