Breaks In Jamaica

Posted February 15, 2011 by BookingBuddy

Like her Caribbean neighbours, Jamaica has plenty of sun, sea and sand, but it is its turbulent past and distinctive culture that set it apart. The local cuisine is unforgettable – take some time out to try some ackee and saltfish, and local fruits such as star apples, guineps and jackfruits. Negril’s dramatic black and blue landscape and laidback lifestyle is perfect for those who want a relaxing holiday. The Blue Mountains offers visitors a chance to see the world’s second largest butterfly and numerous unique plants, as well as some of the best coffee in the world.

 

Eat

Hot Pot – This casual, unpretentious joint serves food that’s nothing like the bland hotel fare you’ll find in the tourist traps nearby. The menu at Hot Pot features comfortable Jamaican home-cooking, the sort of stuff you’ll enjoy if you had a Jamaican grandmother. Enjoy ackee and saltfish, curried mutton, stewed pork or beef, and a plethora of animal parts served with beans. Wash it all down with a can of Red Stripe or refreshingly cold coconut water.

 

Stay

Blue Cave Castle – True to its name, the Blue Cave Castle is an incredible castle-shaped building, set just above a glittering blue cave rumoured to be a former pirates’ hideout. All the rooms here have wonderful views, and a couple of rooms have direct access to the ocean and the eponymous Blue Cave via a series of steps chiselled into the cliff. Room rates start from £38.

 

See

Dunn’s River Falls – If you think Dunn’s River Falls look familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen it in a film or two. Jamaica’s most spectacular waterfalls are popular with visitors as well as filmmakers. It’s a wonderful escape on hot days, as the water cools you down while you’re hiking up the falls. Pack a skimpy swimsuit and pretend you’re Ursula Andress (or Sean Connery) while splashing about in the pools here.
