Trip To Port Antonio (Jamaica)

Hello everybody. This is Sharda here, back again with another write up. How are all of you? Last weekend we were invited to a birthday party at Port Antonio, Jamaica. It’s such a beautiful place that I had to write about it.

My husband and I started at 9:15 am from home. We live in Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was a sunny Sunday morning and I was looking really forward to take a break from the daily routine. I was told that it a long drive and it could take at least three and a half to four hours’ drive. My friends started on Saturday evening and reached there in the night. They spent the night at a villa. I wish I had done that but I had to take care of work before relaxing. The roads were clear, not much traffic and the air was fresh. I had water and snacks packed in the car. Had my favorite music playing on the car, my dear husband was driving and we were chatting all along the way. I had such a wonderful time.

Route map from Montego Bay to Port Antonio

It is about 202 km from Montego bay. The road runs along the coast line and all through the journey I could see the shimmering waters of the Caribbean Sea. On one side was the ebb and flow of the waves and on the other side of the road was beautiful, tall trees. Up to St. Ann’s Bay it was flat road but after that the road was like a long winding ribbon running up and down hills, valleys and knolls.

Finally, after a very long drive we reached our destination and the scenery of Port Antonio was a jaw-dropping gorgeous. The birthday party was held at the majestic looking Trident Castle. It was a private estate and they rent the place for gatherings. The hours flew by as we were engrossed in the simply breath taking views and soon it was time to leave. It took us four hours to get back home. we were dead tired but totally satisfied.

      The best thing about Jamaica is that the sandy beaches, lush greenery and great food all exist together.
