The journey up into the mountains lets you experience the heart of the country. If you have a choice , hire a private driver or small van tour. You will be able to stop and visit the small shops near the school as you enter the village. People are friendly, and well spoken. If you simply want to see Bob Marley’s, take the nice Air-conditioned bus and be quickly whisked in-side the compound. Just be sure to visit. You can contact companies which have Transcription Services. They usually have videos of different places with subtitles in your preferred language to help improve your experience.

Marriage jamaica

Over the past several decades, with the rapid growth of the tourism industry, “hotel marriages” have become a significant contributor to the total number of marriages occurring in the island. Hotel marriages are any marriage occurring in the island, performed by a certified marriage officer of the island. You can also take a look at iMarriages if you are deciding to get married soon.

The following is what you need to know or provide for your marriage in Jamaica:

  1. Proof of citizenship – certified copy of Birth Certificate, which includes father’s name.
  2. Parental consent (written) if under 18 years of age.
  3. Proof of divorce (if applicable) – original Certificate of Divorce.
  4. Certified copy of Death Certificate for widow or widower.
  5. Québécois(e) need a notarized translated English copy of all documents and a photocopy of the original French documents.
  6. Italian nationals celebrating their marriage in Jamaica must notify their embassy for legalization and translation.

9. Try national dish

Ackee and saltfish jamaica

The national dish is Ackee and saltfish, and MUST be tried by anyone visiting the island. It is made with the local fruit called Ackee, which looks like scrambled eggs, but has a unique taste of its own and dried codfish mixed with onions and tomatoes. You probably won’t get a chance to try this food anywhere else, and if you really want to say that you did something uniquely Jamaican, then this is your chance. Freshly picked and prepared ackee is 100 times better than tinned ackee, but must be harvested only when the ackee fruits have ripened and their pods opened naturally on the large evergreen tree on which they grow: unripe ackee contains a potent toxin (hypoglycin A) which causes vomiting and hypoglycaemia . Don’t worry. locals are expert at preparing ackee and will know how to pick it safely.

 

 

10. Try Local Rum

Jamaican Rum

A local hard drink is Jamaican Rum, which is made from sugar cane. It normally tends to be overproof and drunk with cola or fruit juice. DRINK WITH CAUTION! It’s not designed for someone who is drinking it for the first time. It is not unheard of to have 150 proof Jamaican Rum. Since Jamaica was colonized by Britain, the drinking laws are 18 and over, but they don’t generally enforce it as strictly as it would be in the Western countries (minus the ones with no drinking laws, of course)! Guinness is popular and the export 7% has a kick.
