Port Antonio Jamaica

Port Antonio has a rich historical past in the founding of Jamaican tourism. Today, "Porti" is a large bustling city full of the sights and sounds that exemplify the Jamaican experience.

You can find Port Antonio Craft Market, supermarkets (with price tags on the goods) banks, ATM'S, FX trader money changers, post offices, phone fax and internet centers, traffic, bars, discos, and reasonable restaurants.

In season, you may experience the some hard sell methods of hawkers and panhandlers but much, much gentler then experiences encountered on the north and west sides of the island. Eventually you can learn to ignore these distractions.

Across town near the Port Antonio High School, Ram Scram has an eatery that he is fixing up for the season. Here he will serve you good food and philosophy. You can read about Ram Scram in the book Rasta Heart.
