I Visited Jamaica, Yeah! | My Grandparents Land

by Lorraine
(New York & Costa Rica)

I came to visit my Grandparents land. I am from Costa Rica. I wanted to see Maypen, St. Lucy, St Thomas and Kingston.

I didn't go to Dunns River, some said I should of went to Nigrel. But next time I will when I comeback. The people was very nice.๐Ÿ‘

Hi Lorraine,

So nice hearing from you my friend!

And especially so since you are not a natural English speaker, but I see you tried!

By the way, I think you meant Lucea, the Capital of Hanover, right?

But you are right, Costa Rica and Jamaica does have a rich history, as it was Jamaica that supplied qualified labourers to work on the rail system there in the 1870s.

Many of them, I understand, later stayed there and never return. In fact, I think they also have a place there called Little Jamaica now!

I recall that senior journalist at Radio Jamaica, RJR, Earl Moxam, recently did an exciting and insightful presentation on this sometime ago.

If you seek to ascertain more, I suggest you touch base with them.

But that aside, thanks for coming! Yes, you need to see Dunns River and Negril next time, but there are a who lot more; I suggest you start with my list of Top Places To Visit In Jamaica.


P.S. I typically invite my ardent website fans to share their feedback here, so watch the comments below; I suspect there might be others with other great information for you to glean.

All the best Lorraine!
