Jamaica's Capital City

Jamaica's capital city, Kingston, is basicaly the head quarters of the country's affairs.  Jamaica's two (2) major political parties, all major banks, insurance companies, airline companies, travel agencies, utility companies, major transport companies, government agencies, embassies, unions and small business agencies all have their head offices in Kingston.  Many years ago, if a Jamaican needs a passport, cirtificate of title for land, top legal assistance regarding government or other matters, they had to go to Kingston to have these matters sorted out. 

Kingston hosts Jamaica's first International Airport in that of the Norman Manley Inter national airport.  This airport  handles International flights to Jamaica that transport cargo and passengers.  Kingston now has the main cargo shipping hub for the Caribbean region in that of the Kingston Wharves which are located in the Kingston Harbour.  Regarding travellers to Jamaica, Kingston caters to a large number of business, recreational, leisure, adventurous and incentive travellers from around the world. 

If your travelling to Jamaica as a tourist and the nature of your vacation should take you to areas such as the Blue Mountains or Port Antonio, our recommendation to you is to fly into Kingston.  There may be less expensive flights to Montego Bay; being that most or all of the major charter flights goes to Montego Bay.  However, your ride from the Norman Manley International airport in Kingston to the blue Mountains or Port Antonio will be far much shorter and far less expensive.  For more information on facts regarding Kingston please see below or contact us using the information provided on the contact us page.
