JAMAICAN ATTRACTION: FireWater In St.Ann, Jamaica
I'd heard about this place in Windsor St. Ann and purposed that on my next trip to Jamaica, I was going to find it and bring back the evidence.
Here's my 2012 funny and irreverent
video of the incredible Fire Water attraction
sometimes called the Fire Hole in St. Ann's Bay, Jamaica.
This is lovely! Thanks a million for 1) coming here to capture this phenomenon and 2) for sharing it with us.
Interesting history too - based on the information from the gentleman (tour guide) there with you.
Clifton is is name right? BIG UP Clifton!!
I think I also heard him mentioned that the lady who discovered it is still alive (living in Higgins town here in St. Ann), now 112 years old- remarkable!
She was burning a wasp nest off an orange tree, the fire dropped in the water and ignited the water - she ran and told people it was duppy - too funny, lol :-)
I wouldn't blame her though :-)
And that the old lady later used it for therapeutic bath? This is astounding.
I will agree with you that "Jamaica is truly amazing!"
