Kingston is the capital and largest city of Jamaica. Located on the Caribbean Sea; an urban agglomeration of 580 thousand inhabitants. It is located in a natural harbor, protected by a long and narrow spit of Palisados connecting Port Royal and the international airport with the rest of the island.
Population: 580 thousand people
Area: 480 km2
The capital of Jamaica, Kingston, is located southwest of the island. Built on a hilly plain in the harbor, Kingston has been a major West Indian port since its birth. The British settlers who founded this port settlement in 1693 did not even dream that in a few years Kingston would become the most famous center of the slave trade in the Caribbean. Dark-skinned slaves brought to the New World from Africa to work on sugar plantations eventually turned into the main population of the city. Today, their descendants make up over 80% of the nearly 800,000 inhabitants of Kingston. The rest of the metropolitan population is represented by immigrants from Europe, Asia and America.
In addition, the Jamaican dialect is widespread in the capital, which is an amazing mixture of English, Arabic, Afrikaans and some European languages. Some linguists distinguish Jamaican Patos as an independent linguistic unit, while others are of the opinion that it is only a dialect of the English language.
Kingston, like the whole of Jamaica, is located in a tropical zone. This means that summer on the island lasts all year round. The average temperature in July is +28 ° C, in January – about +24 ° C. There is a rainy season lasting from May to October. If the main purpose of visiting Kingston is to get a golden tropical tan, then it is better to plan a trip for November-April. It is during this period that most tourists are here, and prices for accommodation and services are noticeably rising. If a beach holiday is not a priority for you, then keep in mind that Kingston is good at any time of the year.
Jamaicans are a small nation. But their culture, which has absorbed the customs and traditions of many peoples of the world, is rich and popular all over the world. Such genres of modern music as reggae, rocksteady, dub, mento and ska originated here on the island. Reggist Bob Marley, who gained worldwide fame, was born and died in Jamaica. When visiting Kingston, you will definitely be offered to visit his house museum, in which the walls are pierced by bullets (evidence of an assassination attempt!), and the musician’s guitar is lying on the bed in the bedroom. Nowadays, part of the memorial house is occupied by a recording studio.
Jamaica loves music and fun. Melodious reggae tunes and rhythmic recitatives of rap performers are constantly heard from all sides. Every year, very spectacular mass celebrations are held in the capital. In the spring, all residents of the city gather for a costume carnival, and at the end of December, everyone can take part in the Jonkan festival, which is dedicated to the Catholic Christmas. In fact, Catholics on the island are a minority of the Christian community. The majority – about 60% – are Protestants. Do not forget that it is the English Protestants who have the honor of founding the city. It was they who passed on their beliefs to the Jamaicans. In addition to Christians, there are small communities of Muslims, Buddhists and Rastafarian pagans in Kingston, who trace their roots from the ancient pagan cults of Africa.
The modern capital of Jamaica is a very beautiful and peculiar city. Poor neighborhoods, without which more than one country in the world cannot do, are quite colorful and make a pleasant impression thanks to the friendliness of the local population, which tourists and visitors of the city encounter at every step. Even the local “criminal” quarter of Kingston looks quite safe and peaceful in the daytime.
Jamaicans, traditionally engaged in agriculture and fishing, have found new occupations in recent years. Recently, the development of bauxite and aluminum deposits has begun here. Oil refining facilities have also opened in Kingston. Nevertheless, more than 30% of the population works in the field of tourism, which brings significant income to the state.
There are many expensive hotels with top-class service in the city. One of the largest and most luxurious hotels in Kingston is Hilton Kingston Jamaica. Surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, this five-star hotel is located in the business part of the city. Kingston’s main historical attractions are within walking distance of the hotel. There are also simpler hotels where tourists with average incomes can afford to stay. The so-called “guesthouse”, sometimes located a few kilometers from the city center, costs 15-20 $ per person. If luxury is not the main thing for you, then accommodation in such a hotel will suit you perfectly. Moreover, it is quite clean here, and you can always get a good hearty breakfast.
The old part of Kingston looks more like a big and bustling market than a normal residential neighborhood. Brisk trade boils everywhere. The most popular souvenirs in Jamaica are local drums, clothes with national symbols, coffee “Jamaica Blue Mountain” and a CD with reggae music. As for coffee, it is rightfully recognized as one of the best varieties of coffee in the world. Grown on the highest plantation in the world (1200 meters above sea level!), this coffee is very appreciated abroad. But in Kingston, you can buy it by weight and quite inexpensive.
Throughout the history of its more than 300-year existence, Kingston has repeatedly fallen victim to fires, earthquakes and hurricanes. The city was practically rebuilt several times. Therefore, there are no truly historical attractions here. St. Thomas Cathedral, which is shown to tourists as one of the oldest structures, was actually completely destroyed by the strongest earthquake of 1907, after which it was rebuilt. The colonial-style Residence of the Jamaican Government is located on Headquatrhouse Street. In the eastern part of Kingston, you can explore the Rock Fort fortress, built by the British at the end of the XVII century.
Kingston has the University of the West Indies, which has been operating since 1948, and the Jamaica Institute, which has a museum, library and art exhibition. There is also a National Gallery, a drama theater and several cinemas in the city. It will be interesting to visit them for those who one hundred percent want to feel the peculiar culture of the Jamaican people.
The Jamaican dollar is the official currency of Jamaica. By law, it is prohibited to accept foreign currency for payment. But in Kingston, as in other cities of the country, little attention is paid to this ban. You can pay with American dollars here in an expensive shopping center and in a small souvenir shop. 1 USD is equal to approximately 50 Jamaican dollars. The exchange rate is volatile and depends entirely on the stability of the US currency. But the euro is not in favor in Jamaica. The European currency is not accepted everywhere. But it can be easily exchanged for dollars at any nearby bank.
It is impossible to say that Jamaicans lead too healthy a lifestyle. But there are two things on the island that undoubtedly prolong the life of its inhabitants. Firstly, it is a fertile climate. Jamaica has very healthy air, and there are absolutely no tropical infections. Neither malaria nor fevers typical of hot countries have been observed here since the time of Columbus. No wonder, apparently, the famous pirate Henry Morgan once chose Jamaica as his permanent residence.
The second item in the “wellness” Jamaican program is the national cuisine. Mainly consisting of fish, seafood and vegetables, Jamaican dishes are very tasty, light and healthy. All tourists are strongly recommended to try a special Jamaican barbecue – “jerk”, invented 200-300 years ago by runaway slaves from plantations. Despite the strange name, the roast is very tasty and absolutely not dangerous for the figure. In any restaurant and bar you will be offered an incredible assortment of all kinds of fruit juices and cocktails. And all this pleasure is quite cheap. After all, fruits in Jamaica grow in abundance, almost at every step.
All the time tourists stay in Kingston, they are accompanied by the same phrase, which has become a kind of motto of Jamaicans. If you hear the expression “Jamaica! No problem!”, then do not doubt that in fact, it is.
