Kingston is the capital of the island of Jamaica, lying on its southeast coast. In the city center, the Bob Marley Museum is housed in the reggae singer’s former home.
Nearby, Devon House is a colonial-era mansion with period furnishings. Hope Botanical Gardens & Zoo showcases native flora and fauna. Northeast of the city the Blue Mountains are a renowned coffee-growing region with trails and waterfalls.
Squeezed between the Blue Mountains and the world’s seventh-largest natural harbor, Kingston simultaneously impresses you with its setting and overwhelms you with its noise and hustle. This is the island’s cultural and economic heart, and a place named a Creative City of Music by Unesco in 2015. Like a plate of spicy jerk washed down with a cold Red Stripe beer, a visit to Kingston is essential to taste the rich excitement of modern Jamaica.

WHEN TO TRAVEL
The best time to visit Jamaica is November to mid-December.
That's when the island's already beautiful weather (ranging from mid-70s to the high 80s all year-round) is the most pleasant and the hotel and flight deals are the easiest to find.
Rates are also cheap during the summer, but you'll risk the wrath of hurricane season.
As far as hotel rates are concerned, January to March is the peak travel season to the island – room rates can spike to more than $700 per night at some hotels.
