Kingston Metropolitan Resort Board
“The Heartbeat” of Jamaica is Kingston city. The action is non-stop. For diverse culinary experiences, fun, fashion and frolic this is the resort to be. Its backdrop of the Blue Mountains in close proximity makes it picturesque but it’s close to everything. Enjoy art galleries, visit historic sites such as Trench Town- home of world famous reggae music, Hope Gardens and Zoo, Devon House built by Jamaica’s first black millionaire and sample mouth- watering Devon House Ice Cream with indigenous flavours.
The city which boasts the world’s 7th largest naturally occurring harbour, it is also home to the Bob Marley Museum and the centres of higher Learning - the University of the West Indies, University of Technology Jamaica, the Mico University College and more. Liberty Hall home of Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Institute of Jamaica, and the National Gallery are additional offerings of this exciting destination.
Port Royal across the waters makes for an interesting meander into the past. A giddy house occasioned by the earthquake of 1692, a maritime museum and seafood dishes that the locals conjure up.
If sport is on your agenda then cricket at Sabina Park, track and field at the National Stadium, golf at the Constant Spring golf Club and horse racing at Caymanas Park are just a few.
The exciting nightlife in theatres, discotheques, and a myriad of events from carnival to bacchanal, make for a calendar of events that’s chockfull.
Norman Manley International airport is the gateway for many business travellers. This resort encompasses the parishes of St. Thomas, St Catherine, Kingston and St. Andrew, its Chairman is veteran James Samuels.
