Eco Tourism

The environment is the product…The industry must be provided with the incentive and the expertise to adopt best practices on environmental issues.

Heritage Development

Tourism must reflect the history, culture and aspirations of local people…that differentiates the product from other territories.

Estates – Developing some estates into national parks might be in the future of heritage preservation, because of the surreal legacies behind their existence.

Churches – Churches exhibit an interesting combination of Jamaica Georgian and Classic Gothic elements as their distinctive architectural style. The churches also played a major role in the emancipation and independence struggles and remain significant features of modern life. There is a specialist market for churches and related architecture in the US and Europe. (Masterplan for Sustainable Tourism Development, 2002)

Forts – Often located on prominent hill top or coastal sites, forts offer commanding views from suitable viewing platforms and are related to prominent events in Jamaica’s history. Community Tourism Enterprise Development For Sustainable Tourism and local communities must play a major role in defining, developing, and managing the tourism experience so that they can take ownership of the industry and are committed to providing the visitor experience on which the success of the industry depends (Masterplan for Sustainable Tourism Development, 2002) The Community Tourism Development Steps Licensing requirements for Community Enterprises, depend on the elements involved; eg – Accommodation, Domestic Tour, Place of Interest etc. Click here to see the documentation required for your tourism product.
