Moon Jamaica Handbook (Sixth Edition) maps out a fantastic best-of-Jamaica 14-day tour beginning in Montego Bay and arriving in Kingston on Day 8.
Book Neita's Nest for your 3-day home stay as you explore some of the highlights of our capital city: the National and Mutual Galleries and many smaller but equally interesting ones; Liberty Hall with The Legacy of Marcus Garvey; Legend Cafe at the Bob Marley Museum; the Royal Hope Botanical Gardens with it's monthly open-air performance by the Jamaica Military Band; historic Devon House with great shopping and dining/bar experiences; the University of the West Indies where 18th century plantation ruins, World War II refugee camps and modern faculties buildings gracefully share 653 beautifully landscaped acres; Gloria's (seafood) Restaurant and Fort Charles in Port Royal, and a boat trip to Lime Cay for sun, sea and sand; local and international restaurants in the most interesting of settings; National Heroes Park which weaves the tale of Jamaica's social and political history. For a change of climate, a scenic drive through the Blue Mountains and an exhilarating hike through Holywell Recreational Park, with a tour of coffee farms and a taste of Blue Mountain Coffee.
Yes, you can do it all in 3 days. But stay longer and discover even more reasons why Kingston is the cultural capital of the Caribbean.
Christmas in Jamaica is food, fellowship and that cool Christmas breeze blowing just so only at this time of year. At Neita's Nest Bed & Breakfast we steeped a spicy sorrel, baked Lillan's Brick-Oven Smoked Ham and steamed the most delicious Christmas puddings you could imagine. It is all in the olde family recipe, practised to perfection. It's still the talk, and even tho' it is New Year's Day, orders are coming in for gifts and lingering memories to be taken back to second homes abroad.
Happy New Year from Neita's Nest!
