Destination guide

Experience Jamaica in Kingston

Steel drums echo through rollicking Kingston, reggae rings in the jerk dives, and island life throbs just as it has done since the days Bob Marley rung the Tuff Gong with The Wailers. Even before that, in fact _ Port Royal was once infamous for swashbucklers and pirates, trodden by Henry Morgan and his chests of Spanish gold. These days, the capital of Jamaica is a great place to settle in Kingston vacation rentals and seek an intro to these Caribbean lands. The National Gallery, the Bob Marley Museum, craft bazaars, mango-stacking fruit stalls, rum joints, and more all await.

Things to do

Tracing Bob Marley and more in Kingston

There's no more hallowed institution in Kingston than the Bob Marley Museum. Hour-long tours of the spot, where the revered national musician himself once lived, reveal the old recording studios of Tuff Gong, and shrines to the school of reggae to boot. Afterwards, the National Gallery of Jamaica is the place to go to find Taino treasures and islander artwork, while the old pirate haunts of Port Royal are riddled with 17th-century forts and haunting tales of Calico Jack, Henry Morgan, and Charles Vane.


Hot all year round in Kingston

Jamaica stays balmy and hot the whole year, with mercury levels oscillating between the 70s and 90s. The hottest months of all come with the summer, from May to August, while visiting in fall until November can mean contending with the tropical storms of the Atlantic Hurricane Belt. Cue the cooler, drier days that dominate between December and March, which is when most people will be seeking their Kingston vacation rentals between the reggae bars and pirate forts.
