St. Mary's Parish: a new sustainable-tourism destination?

For our first-ever trip to the Caribbean (it was 1979), my friend Michael, his then-girlfriend, my then-girlfriend, and I rented a cottage on the north coast of Jamaica, about a stone's throw from Ocho Rios and the parish of St. Mary.

  • Now that we've settled into our Jamaica routine on dry land, The World on Wheels takes on the number one activity on the island, namely jumping back in the water. Come for the beautiful pools and beaches. Stay for the stingrays and jerk bar. We're switching to Vacation Mode in Jamaica.
