Joys of a Jamaican Journey

I enjoyed myself so much watching and listening to The Imagination of Eleanor Alberga, a uniquely engaging virtual concert and storytelling experience about the life and music of influential Jamaican composer Eleanor Alberga. I encourage you to sit back and give yourself the gift of this four-part concert of Alberga's music as part of Orchestra of St. Luke's Free Community Concerts. That link be active through January 15, 2021.

These performances show how much there is to discover about Jamaica and its cultural scene, the birthplace of several internationally popular musical genres including reggae. Kingston is an exhilarating urban hub with great music and art to explore, and we can arrange for you to have meet and greets with Jamaican R&B and hip hop artists in their studios, where you can learn and record your own tracks!

Of course you'll want to head out of the city for fun water activities and to savor the excellent foodie experiences around jerk spices and world-famous Blue Mountain coffee. Jamaica's got marvelous geographic diversity: pristine beaches, alluring sea caves, tumbling waterfalls, and lush forested mountains. We can arrange a guided hike through the Blue Mountains on a coffee plantation tasting tour to see how they make some of the most prized coffee in the world.

In general, it's best to travel through Jamaica with your own expert driver guide rather than taking a rental car out on your own. Go all around with your local driver to discover the best hidden gems and any places you should avoid too. There's so much to see and do in Jamaica, and I hope you enjoy this list of top hotels and experiences Nine Muses Travel can arrange for you!
