We recommend a car package. Crystal Cove is located in the heart of the most beautiful scenery in Jamaica. Nearby are beaches, mountains, waterfalls, caves, rain forests and rafting to explore. With a car you can enjoy them at your own pace. (We also have great drivers we regularly work with, if you prefer to leave the driving to us.) Airplane or helicopter charters are also available to Port Antonio from Kingston (20 minutes) or Montego Bay (40 minutes). See the photos in the slideshows below for sights you will pass on your journeys.
May we suggest.
If you'd like to take a little more time (half an hour), tell us, and we'll ask your driver to take you on a more scenic route leaving Kingston: via Port Royal Street through Downtown, up King Street, around Parade, up Duke Street and then Marescaux Road, then over on Oxford Road up Knutsford Boulevard, along Trafalgar Road to Constant Spring and on to Port Antonio. This will take you past important, centuries-old buildings from Jamaica's past, such as old seaport warehouses, the synagogue, Mico College, Devon House, as well as through its modern business district.
From the airport.
If you have rented a car, your Island Car Rentals driver will take you on your complimentary drive from Kingston's Norman Manley International Airport to San San. You will pass through winding riverside roads in lush valleys, and along the coast.
Crystal Cove to Reach Falls
The first map shows how a trip to Reach Falls passes several other lovely spots along the way, including Winfred and Boston Beaches - the latter the home of surfing and 'jerk' seasoning in Jamaica, and Long Bay.
Crystal Cove to Port Antonio
The map showing the route to Port Antonio happens to show the way to the Errol Flynn Marina and its harbourside esplanade, with a great ice cream shop on one end. But the town has many other sights, including a bustling market, the remains of an 18th-century fort, a cenotaph honoring the parish's Word War One dead, examples of traditional island architecture, and quaint, narrow shopping streets.
