Ricardo Horridge is one of the latest additions to the FHI team, and for his first blog post he’s showcasing all there is to see and experience in his native Jamaica.
At 18.143444° N, -77.34655° E, sits the third largest island nation in the Caribbean, Jamaica. A very proud and culturally diverse country with its motto, “Out of Many, One People” concisely capturing its diversity.
You’ll find cuisines, languages, and other cultural products from all around the world carefully blended to provide you with the breathtaking experience that is Jamaica at its finest. From the curried goat and roti that can be found on almost every corner of the island that accentuates the Island’s Indian culture, to the authentic Jamaican jerked chicken made with a carefully curated blend of herbs and spices synonymous with the African culture, there’s no shortage of mouth-watering dishes that you can find on the Island.
Jamaica’s diversity transcends the cultural realm and is also evident in its landscape and infrastructure. From the stunning mountains of the Cockpit County to the white sand beaches in Negril, to the bustling streets of Kingston City — Jamaica fulfills the needs of all, those that would like to take a load off and relax in the hills on a cool Sunday morning with a hot cup of the world-renowned Blue Mountain Coffee, to those seeking a more eventful nightlife in the city.
The party never stops, literally! You can find vibrant nightclubs and sports bars open past 2:00 a.m. all over the island, as well as street dances that go up until daybreak. You can also choose to walk through history and live out your pirate fantasies with a tour of the remains of the sunken pirate city of Port Royal — a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site — or lay out on the pristine beaches found on some of the finest coastal resorts on the island, ranked among the best in the world.
