Travel Tips by Burleson Consulting
Jamaica has long been misunderstood as a
dangerous destination, partly due to the crime areas in Kingston.
However, for those staying in a resort, Jamaica is perfectly safe
and you can still venture forth to see the mountain rain forests and
Lush, fertile and tropical, the inland mountain
areas grow fresh Nutmeg, Cocoa, Coco, as well as coconut, pineapple
and Papaya. Vendors sell ice-cold baby coconuts from the roadside,
a wonderful treat, and make sure to try the wonderful exotic fruits
such as Sour Sap.
||For food, try the native Jamaica breakfasts of Aki and
Salt Fish or liver. For later meals, don’t miss the
Manish Water soup and Jerk pork and jerk
Rastafarianism is a major religion in Jamaica
and local Rasta’s use a medicinal herb called “Ganja” which is
smoked as a part of their religious services. A devout group,
Rastas can be seen worshipping from any country roadside. For an
“anything goes” resort experience, the Hedonism (called Hedo by
locals) resort is famous worldwide for accommodating any and every
request. Hedo also has an all-nude area for the sun worshippers.
The main tourist attractions include Dunn’s
River falls where you can hike up the shallow waterfall, the
Jamaican bobsled team training camp and the Bob Marley museum.
