I’ve written a couple of short pieces for G Adventures about Jamaica.
The first is about the historic town of Port Royal near Kingston, which as various times in its history served as a haven for such notorious pirates as Blackbeard and Henry Morgan, a Royal Navy base where a young Nelson served, and a location for Dr. No, Sean Connery’s first outing as 007. You can read the full piece here.
The second article is about the joys of Reggae Sumfest, Jamaica’s biggest music festival, which is held every July near Montego Bay. Read more about it here.
You can find out more about G Adventures’ trips to Jamaica here. The new edition of the Lonely Planet Jamaica guidebook, which I co-authored, is published in Oct.
