Jamaica: Port Antonio

Port Antonio is a small-town on the north-east side of Jamaica and in this area there are many things to see and do. We decided to stay in Great Huts near Boston Bay which is a bit outside of the city and appeared to be an excellent choice. The resort is located on a cliff and guests have access to a private beach with great possibilities for surf and snorkling. Unfortunately the weather was not really on our side and we were not too tempted to test the water.

Port Antonio er en liten by på nord-østsiden av Jamaica, og i dette området er det mange ting å se og gjøre. Vi bestemte oss for å bo i  Great Huts nær Boston Bay som er litt utenfor byen og syntes å være et utmerket valg. Hotellet ligger på en klippe og gjester har tilgang til en privat strand med gode muligheter for surfing og snorkling. Dessverre var ikke været helt optimalt og en svømmetur var ikke så fristende.

We stayed for one night and enjoyed the nice atmosphere in the bar at the resort and the local vibes at a reggae party in town for late night cocktails and rhythms. Then we went back to our little hut and slept through the night until the worst thunderstorm in history woke us up. I guess one can never know what to expect in this exiting country.

In the afternoon the next day we were able to get a look at what Port Antonio had to offer. The city was bustling with life when we were there but it got a bit hectic for us at one point.

Vi bodde der en natt og satte stor pris på den hyggelige atmosfæren i baren på hotellet og lokale vibes på reggae-festen i byen der vi nøt cocktails og danset til karibiske rytmer. Så gikk vi tilbake til vår lille hytta og sovnet frem til det verste tordenværet i historien vekket oss. Man vet aldri hva du kan forvente i dette spennende landet.

Neste dag gikk vi for å ta en titt på hva Port Antonio hadde å tilby. Byen var full av liv da vi ankom, nesten en smule for hektisk for oss.

The Blue lagoon is very close to the city of Port Antonio and was a sight we didn´t want to miss. The lagoon is supposedly bottomless. Here there are some great opportunities for scuba diving although we missed out on that.

Den Blå lagune befinner seg nær byen Port Antonio og var et sted vi ønsket å besøke på turen vår. Det sies at lagunen visstnok er bunnløs men jeg er sannelig ikke sikker. Her er det store muligheter for dykking selv om vi ikke gikk for det i denne omgang.

Port Antonio was definitely a fun stop and a great start of our Jamaica adventure. And it gave us some good energy to continue to check out what more this island had to offer.

Port Antonio var definitivt et kjekt stopp på ruten vår og en flott start på vår Jamaica eventyr. Det ga oss også mersmak og energi til å fortsette å utforske denne spennende øyen og hva den har å tilby.
