Authentic Experiences – Food, History and Culture at Jamaica Inn

July 8, 2016


Travelling is not just an activity; it’s the art of broadening your vision

through the priceless experience.” (Chirisa, n.d.)

Jamaica Inn, a hidden gem in the Ocho Rios landscape is known for its historical buildings, exceptional staff, beautiful gardens and its extensive champagne colored private beach. At Jamaica Inn we endeavor to provide rich experiences that transcend the average vacation by facilitating unique experiences that are authentic to the destination.
We invite guests to experience the features that are distinct to Jamaica; steeped in rich tradition and culture. These features, indicative of the heart and soul of Jamaica’s rich heritage provide a portal transporting guests back in time to the days of the original Jamaican traditions. We believe these traditions should be cultivated and shared with our guests through unique unforgettable interactions that ultimately aid in the preservation of the traditions we hold dear. This distinctive sense of nostalgia stems from Jamaica Inn’s symphony of flora, scenery and history.
