My son is marrying a wonderful girl from Portland. My family and some friends will be flying to Jamaica for the wedding. The wedding will be in Portland. Any ideas of where to stay that will not"break the bank" with perhaps a cook and housekeeper?
We are visiting Jamaica with our 16 year old son at the end of March 2011. We stayed two weeks in Negril in the early 90's and want to visit Porland Parish this time. We are working with a tight budget and would like some suggestions on where to stay.
have you any advice on an inexpensive place to stay for two in Port Antonio, Jamaica area?
Staying in Port Antonio Dec 2006 and I am interrested in the "Meet the People" program. Anyone had any experiences with this?
Has anyone stayed at the Blue Marlin villa in San San Estates in Port Antonio?
We are renting 2 bdrms. the second week in April and I was trying to get as much info as possible (info junkie). Thanks for any replies!! Kim
I will be in Port Antonio January 11-15 on my first trip
to Jamaica, perhaps staying at the Frenchman's Cove Resort (1BR stone villa/125 a night) ..
Do you recommend Frenchman's Cove Resort? What are the other altenative (and cheaper) recommendations?
What are the essentials that I need to bring?
Also, what are your favorite things to do there :-)?
Appreciate any advice -

I'll be staying in Port Antonio the second week of January. Does anyone have any recommendations for off-the-beaten-track activities like hiking and such?
Has anyone stayed at Fern hill club? I'm traveling with my husband and 2 small children 3 and 1, We like places somewhat quaint and middle of the road? Definitely not up for run-down places. Any ideas or suggestions?
Port Antonio Jamaica is such a great destination and so much more beautiful and interesting than the resort towns on the other end of the island. But Jamaica's tourism has firmly planted the island as an all-inclusive gated-resort destination where you are "safe from the locals". What a sham!
Port Antonio is the quiet side, the green side, the local side, the sustainable tourism side (not to mention the romantic non-caustic side) of Jamaica.
How do we dispel the myths of danger and peril and promote local, community-based tourism initiatives in Jamaica? How do we convey the message that Port Antonio is better tourism and better for Jamaica?
Hi ! Picture soon ! I saw some super photos of Port Antonio , it looks like an exotic paradise . I want to see Port Antonio with my husband and 2 kids , ages 5 and 8, end Feb. 2004 for approx 11 days . We dont normally do the BIG resort thing , so it does seem our style . My concern was safety ,I am more nervous travelling with the children . We will stay perhaps at Fern Hill and beaches are within walking distance . Negril at Merrils is an option as well but we have fallen in love with Port Antonio from photos , articles etc. I even read it has a lower crime rate than some other tourist areas . Plase any input is great .I even rented 4 bad movies just to see P.A. !!! Thanx Faith
