Places To Visit In Jamaica For History & Culture
Published July 7, 2016
QUESTION about: Places To Visit In Jamaica For History & culture
Planning on visiting soon with my family and almost adult children. They are interested in the culture and history of the island also the food vegetarian included.
What places would you suggest we visit when we get there?
It would be helpful to get the name of these places and where they are located.
I thought it would be safe to get a personal driver with whom I am acquainted.
