Jamaica is known for its sandy beaches and beautiful resorts. It's also famous for its well-prepared Jamaican dishes. So when I got to Jamaica one of my goals was try to eat at a variety of places and take a tour of country side. Raymore was recommended by our hotel concierge as a reliable tour guide and private driver. He went above and beyond what I wanted to do and see. He picked us up at 10am and the first place he took us to was Copper Pot, where they prepared goat soup for us to try. It was really good.
Since I wanted to get out of the resort and go into the mountains, he drove us from Montego Bay to the south and then back up north to Negril with bunch of stops along the way at beaches, shops, Rick's cafe and different food spots. One of my favorites was trying out Jamaican ackee and fresh coconut at the Cool Jellyman stand. I've never had ackee so it was really fun to try it out.
You know Jamaicans love their patty so we stopped at Juici Patty with Raymore. They offer beef, cheese chicken and shrimp patty and I tried all of them. I had six of them because it was the best patties I ever had. If you want to have a great experience and some superb memories then contact Raymore. Without Raymore we may have never experienced the true Jamaica. Thanks again Raymore my friend!

Jamaica, one place that I wish to visit in the near future. Old style of cooking preparation but I bet the food tasted great.

I tried some Jamaican food from a stall in London, it was very tasty, I bet in Jamaica is delicious. It’s beautiful to see hoe they make it, you did have a great experience.

So glad to see there’s a coconut water connection between India and Jamaica– I used to drink coconut water all the time. So glad you had a terrific time. Great photos!
