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 For a breath of fresh air, spend a day in the Blue Mountains with a stop at Strawberry Hill for lunch or dinner. The drive takes less than two hours from Kingston. For the adventurous, arrive before sunrise and bring flashlights to illuminate the 7-mile ascent to the top of the Blue Mountains. At 7,402 feet above sea level, the peaks are spectacular, with vistas of Cuba on a clear day and fresh coffee beans perfuming the morning air.
