Vacation In Jamaica

Vacation in Jamaica and you'll find all-inclusive resorts but also hilltop estates where hummingbirds land on your fingers and hidden coves where only your footprints will be found in the sand.

So go hiking and probably you catch sight of our national bird, the Jamaican streamer-tail Hummingbird found deep into Sherwood Forest and the Reach Falls area of the Blue Mountains.

Also, stop along the roadside and sample some of our exotic foods like roast breadfruit, ackee, fry fish and of course our jerk chicken and pork.

Or try your taste-buds at a local restaurant with some curried chicken, oxtail, pepper shrimp or some other mouthwatering dish.

You do not need to spend a lot to enjoy Jamaica's many wonders.

Celebrity Review Jamaica - Beres Hammond

Beres Hammond is another of my favorite reggae artist. His songs tells you a romantic story.

I especially love whenever he is ending his life performances he sings:

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, thanks for giving me health and strength, thank you for keeping me sane, thank you for this life, yea, thank you, thank you, thank you....

The song is "Giving Thanks" selection #19 from the album Can't Stop a Man: Best of which was also recorded live in New York. It is worth listening to.... it is moving, soulful and beautiful. I just love it.

Another good selection "Dancehall Vibes" which is #18 with a rock rythmn about the a song stuck in your head, a great album.

Do purchase and listen to some of Beres Hammond music, you will not be disappointed.

Beres will be a late night television guest on the Jimmy Fallon show on December 11th, and also performing at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, on December 12th.
