Cuba to Jamaica

by vidaboa

Hey all, I am looking for a flight from Cuba to Jamaica and the only airline I can find that does it is Air Jamaica (except charter flights which are not an option). Does anyone know any other airline that I can research? Also, the Air Jamaica website doesn't allow me to check into flights out of Cuba online for some reason. Any help/advice appreciated. (note: I can leave from any destination in Cuba and arrive at any in Jamaica)

Re: Cuba to Jamaica

by cochinjew

There are daily flights from La Habana to Kingston/MoBay. occsional flights from Santiago de Cuba to MoBay, but very expensive. Cubana runs charter flights from Holguin to MoBay, but you are able to get seats on them.
You may wish to consider: cayman airways: la habana-cayman-MBJ or KIN
you can also reach Kingston from Havana through Nassau.
Copa flies into Jamaica from Panama and there are two daily flights from Havana to Panama. Copa is a good airline.
The inability to book out of cuba might have something to do with american embargo. for example you cant buy a ticket( unless through authorized travel agents) a ticket from miami to havana via montego bay on air jamaica. on their website.
Cubana used to fly to KIN but they stopped that.

hope this helps

Travel Tips for Kingston

Movies filmed in Kingston

by Dabs

I haven't had a chance to rent either one yet but our guide referred to a couple of films that were shot on location in Kingston, "Dr. No" with Sean Connery as James Bond and "Harder They Come", a Jamaican cult classic partially filmed in Kingston and Lime Cay which surprisingly is offered on NetFlix.

Bog Walk Gorge & Pam Pam Rock

by toonsarah

North of Spanish Town, and a little under an hour’s drive from Kingston, is the striking scenery of Bog Walk Gorge. The name Bog Walk is derived from the Spanish words Boca de Agua which means water's mouth. In 1770 the first road was cut through the Gorge, which must have been quite an undertaking, and it’s still an impressive route to drive today.

Halfway along the gorge, the road switches from the west to the east side of the Rio Cobre via the Flat Bridge, an 18th century stone structure which replaced an earlier wooden bridge. The bridge is unusual in having no side railings. This slightly disconcerting design helps to protect the bridge against the power of the water, which is very necessary – there have been times when a surge of up to 50 feet has been recorded here. And to reinforce the power of the river, we saw a rusting car on the river bed downstream from the bridge which Dave told us had been swept away during a huricane previous year. The bridge only carries one-way traffic, controlled by traffic lights, and either side of it you should be able to pull off the road to admire the view of the gorge, reflected in the still greenish water of the river.

Just north of the bridge, though you’ll probably need to be with a local to spot this, is the so-called Pam Pam Rock, a cleft in the wall of the gorge often likened (with some justification, it has to be said) to a vagina – see photo 2.

Take the paved path.

Ok. Well this is not so much off the beaten path in the sense that its far away. Quite the opposite actually, step out the front door of wherever you may be staying, and in 3 seconds you're there. It is off the beaten path in that most people will probably zip around in a taxi or rented car.

Take the time to walk to your destination (if feasible of course, I wouldn't suggest walking to Port Antonio from Kingston for example). Along the way you will see the city in a light you wouldn't be able to from the back of a cab. Sights, sounds, smells (sometimes unpleasant ones) and the friendly people. As an added bonus, you WON'T be hassled like in the tourist towns.

Spanish Town-the Old King's House

by Dabs

On the western side of the main square in Spanish Town is the old King's house, built in 1773 and used as the residence of colonial governors. In 1838, the proclamation abolishing slavery was read from the steps here.

Spanish Town-old cast iron bridge

by Dabs

At the eastern edge of Spanish Town, heading towards Kingston, you will pass by this bridge, no longer in use, that spans the Rio Cobre River. The bridge dates back to 1801 and is the oldest bridge of its kind in the Western Hemisphere.

Unfortunately the picture I took showing the cast iron part of the bridge didn't turn out so you'll have to be satisfied seeing the stone part. Or you can take a look at the attached website for a better pic.
