Meet the People: Hidden Gems of Jamaica

Travel Journalist, Peter Greenberg – A majority of the tourists that come to Jamaica end up landing in Montego Bay or Ocho Rios or Negril and then you know what happens? And they may never leave the resort. But if you want to experience Jamaica, like the locals. Then you’ve got to meet the people.

In Port Antonio or “Porty,” you’ll find great beaches, great service, great food and no crowds. But that’s just the start. If you’re interested in art, music, any sort of culture-any sort of cooking-you just ask the Jamaican tourism board. They have an innovative program that actually pairs you with a local artist, artisan, chef or craftsman to share with you their skill.
