There’s more to Jamaica than just rum and reggae (although we’re proud fans of both). But because the island is so big (at more than 4,000 square-miles it’s the largest English-speaking Caribbean country), it’ll likely take you much more than a weekend to discover its beyond-the-beach assets.
Cue the savvy marketers at Strawberry Hill, a 12-cottage resort nestled in the island’s famous Blue Mountains, who’ve introduced new promotion that offers an uncommon take on the famously irie isle.
Book the three-night Jamaica On A Platter package and you’ll enjoy a selection of tours that highlight the island’s artistic and culinary assets. Visit Kingston Coffee Traders, one of the leading manufacturers of prized Blue Mountain coffee; discover tropical fruit and vegetables at Coronation Market, Jamaica’s largest; and see the vibrant murals on Fleet Street in downtown Kingston, where the painted warehouse facades now form the island’s largest public art installation.
The package is valid for the last weekend of every month from now through the summer.
