Bob Marley, Reggae and a true taste of Jamaica

Montego Bay offers endless of entertainment – Bob Marley still a part of the Sumfest week

JAMAICA: He died  in 1981, but Bob Marley still casts a long shadow across Jamaica. From sculptures around the country  and the reggae beats from every speaker to his face gazing up from jars of shoe polish. Bob Marley is everywhere.

Few others changed the musical landscape as Bob Marley. He was reggae’s foremost medical practitioner and ambassador personifying spirit and spreading his music to all corners of the globe – from ska to rock and reggae.

Beer and culture. For sure Marley still is kind of a part of Reggae Sumfest, the largest concert in Jamaica that showcases world renowned Reggae music artists. Sumfest began in 1993 and is held in Montego Bay, the tourist capital of Jamaica. Come over in  mid July, and you will be served Red Stripe beer and a true taste of Caribbean culture.

The proceedings of the concert occur over a course of one week. During the week parties are held on the Hip strip and pristine beaches of Montego Bay, Jamaica featuring many of Jamaica’s top DJs. These additional parties feature other acclaimed local artistes in the true Jamaican atmosphere of sand, sun, and song.

One week. The Hip strip of Montego Bay offers endless opportunities for entertainment during the Sumfest week such as exhilarating club experiences, delectable food options, and tranquil areas for relaxation. Look for a place to stay – there are accommodations to suit every budget; from luxurious world renowned hotels to quiet homey villas.
