The Outameni Experience

by Diane Sheerwood
(Houston, Texas)

My husband, kids and I decided to visit Jamaica's north coast but wanted to truly see the country and meet the people as opposed to doing all the 'touristy' things so we rented a villa and a car, asked questions and went on our merry way.


Someone recommended that we go to the Outameni experience in Trelawny - if we wanted to see the true history of Jamaica.

We called and spoke to someone on the property who was so nice and who explained what the tour entailed.

We arrived at the property on the Friday and from we drove in we were greeted by characters of times past.

We went through the Jamaican village and saw Spanish, Tainos, Africans and so much more. We danced and we sang our hearts out and you could really feel what they were saying and it was so moving. Even the kids had a great time.

It is always important to us to learn about the people of the countries we visit.

My husband is always excited to sit and just talk so the visit to the Outameni Experience was really, really great for us!

That's really great to hear Diane.

I've heard great experiences about the Outameni experience. Now I really just need to go there myself.
