2 DAY ITINERARY
1 Enjoy a leisurely Jamaican breakfast of saltfish and ackee and a steaming cup of Blue Mountain coffee.
2 Afterward, head to Emancipation Park, across from the Jamaica Pegasus hotel, to lyme with the locals (lyming is Jamaica’s version of shooting the breeze on the street corner) and snap photos of the famous Redemption Song bronze statues commemorating the end of slavery. For the fitness-minded, the park has a 500-meter jogging track.
3 Adjacent to the park is the Liguanea Club; its old colonial buildings and tennis courts doubled as the Queen’s Club, where James Bond sipped cocktails on the porch with Dr. Dent in the classic spy-thriller "Dr. No."
1 Leave the rental car at the hotel and hire a driver to visit Trench Town and the Tuff Gong Recording Studio to see the mixing board used to record the Marley classics “No Woman, No Cry“ and “Stir it Up.” The record stores on Orange Street have the widest selection of reggae music on the island.
2 Take the ferry from Ocean Boulevard to Port Royal for a peek at Jamaica’s pirate past.
