Eat & Drink
Jamaica is well known for its mouth-watering, tasty dishes. Whether you need proper food, snacks or exotic food or drinks there is abundance of things to “tickle your taste buds.”
Even though all accommodation comes in this package comes with daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it would be a Jamaican gastronomy criminal offence not to try the below.
Jamaican Jerk Chicken and pork, Ackee and salt fish, Jamaican rice and peas, curry goat, Mannish water (Nigerian pepper soup), Callaloo, Sweet potato pudding, Meat Patty (Nigerian meat pie)
There is a clear love of freshness in the preparation of good spicy food in Jamaica, and love of sweetness in its desserts. The abundance of meat, fish, and vegetables makes popular Jamaican food a rewarding area of exploration for all food lovers.
For sweet tooths, Jamaica has unending cakes and deserts to keep your teeth busy! Coconut drops, tamarind balls, bulla cake, grater cake and Jamaican rum cake
With all this exotic-sounding food on the menu, you will be looking to complete the experience with a somewhat traditional drink.
Irish Moss, Sea Cat Punch, Sorrel, Bob Marley Cocktail and of course RUM itself!
Pineapples, bananas, melons, papaya (or according to Jamaicans pawpaw), are all fruits you are familiar with and can find just about anywhere on your next trip to Jamaica.
However, there are a host of other exotic fruits that you may never have even heard of, but they are growing across the island on hillsides, in backyards and even on the sides of the roads.
Look out for Naseberry, Tamarind, Guniep, June plum, jack fruit, sweet sop & sour sop, star apple.
Sleeping in an amazing accommodation for us is important for our rejuvenation and believe it should be for you too and that is why for this trip we have handpicked the three options presented above to guarantee the relaxation you seek.
