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 Start out the morning with a contemplative visit to the 100-year-old sand-floor Shaare Shalom, Jamaica’s only synagogue.
2 Then head to the streets surrounding St. William Grant Park, called the Parade and bustling with activity during the day. National Heroes Park is where the “corn ladies” sell their homemade treats to hungry locals and tourists. Browse Coronation Market, the largest and busiest outdoor market on the island.
3 Later, have an authentic Jamaican jerk meal at one of Kingston’s informal eateries: Scotchies Tree, Chelsea Jerk Centre or Rib Kage Bar & Grill.
