The past comes to life at the coastal town of Falmouth just 22 miles east of Montego Bay. Famous for it’s Georgian architecture, and rich colonial history that recently received a new lease on life, it is now a port town that has awoken from a deep slumber, and is ready to redeem its former glory.
Port Antonio was just another small town on Jamaica’s North-East Coast, until Lorenzo Dow Baker, an American pioneer in the tropical fruit trade and founder of the United Fruit Company, arrived in 1870 to set-up trade in bananas. Suddenly, "Porty" became the destination for well-to-do American travellers, who came in on banana boats in droves from Boston. At one point, Port Antonio had more activity than Liverpool in England.
Welcome to the Complete Resort town—where there is something for everyone.

Located within a crescent bay on Jamaica’s north coast, Ocho Rios is the most popular destination in St. Ann, the "Garden Parish", and which lives up to its name with sloping, lush hillsides and hidden waterfalls. One of the town’s most famous, the iconic and endlessly photographed Dunn’s River Falls, contributed to the town’s name, a misnomer that resulted from a British misunderstanding.
