About Port Antonio, Jamaica

Port Antonio is a small town nestled between the Caribbean Sea and the Blue Mountains.

This part of the island is unique in that visitors and locals can swim in the sea, river raft, and hike the rainforest all in one day. The natural beauty here is the main attraction, from the famous Blue Lagoon to the mountainous rainforest that overlooks it. Beyond natural beauty, people here love to socialize around the barbecues of jerk chicken, pork, and goat grilling in nearby Boston, the birthplace of Jerk. Port Antonio is a rural town that doesn’t see many foreigners, however it has been a hotspot vacation destination for Jamaicans for years. This is the quintessential, authentic Jamaica experience.
