Other areas are almost equally popular, but the three above are the only formally established ones- for now.
Kingston the capital of Jamaica, located in the southwestern part of island, is considered the administrative, cultural and industrial hub of Jamaica. It is also the largest city in Jamaica.
Port Of Kingston
The famous "White Witch's" Rose Hall property is one of the most popular historic attraction in Montego Bay. By the way, Rose Hall is well known for being the spot of many of James Bond thrillers.
Portmore was just recently awarded this status- and rightly so, it was the fastest growing area in Jamaica. Just 11 miles west of the city of Kingston, it was estimated to be home to an estimated 170,000 low to middle-income families.
According to Wikipedia, Portmore began as a large area for schematic residential development in the late 1960s, as the WIHCON organization built thousands of prototype housing units in an effort to alleviate the over-population of Kingston.
It has since grown as a suburban city to Kingston, as its large population travels via the Causeway Bridge into Kingston daily, for work, schooling, and many other essential services.
It has its own City Council and Mayor, following the British-based model of other Jamaican cities' governments.
While Portmore is not marketed as a tourist destination for the millions of incoming travelers to Jamaica every year, there are many places for entertainment, eating, relaxing and enjoyment.
Today, Portmore is one of the most important cities in the island nation and comprises of approximately 10% of the population of the Kingston Corporate Area.
Negril, Ocho Rios & Port Antonio are other notable areas of the country that, though not official cities, are highly popular to our tourists.
Negril is easily the most popular though, it is almost a little Jamaica by itself! With a little more infrastructural work, don't be surprised if you hear that the town of Negril becomes a city too!
