Why not try...?
A visit to the main Port Antonio market with your housekeeper on a Friday or Saturday can provide an insider's look into daily Jamaican life.
For a taste of Europe, our neighbour Vera from Belgium makes delicious croissants, pies, brioches, pains au chocolat, danishes, cannolis, flans, quiches, pastries, and cheesecakes. Ask us to call her before 5pm for next day's delivery, or ring her at: 876.567.9998 or 876.543.0847. Here is her menu:
A Wealth of Exotic Options
National dish ackee and saltfish, pumpkin soup, bammy, festival and the catch of the day, baked plantain, home-made ice cream or coconut pie for dessert, Red Stripe and Appleton rum—Jamaican food is a joy to try.
At US$48 per adult daily (kids 7-12 $24, and kids 6 and under free), we'll deliver breakfast and dinner to your villa.
Or cook for yourself in your villa kitchen.
Or bring your own cook.
