    Interesting step back in time to the days when Port Royal was the "wickedest city on earth" (although no specific examples were given to explain why). Lots of steps to navigate for those with mobility...  more »

    A local guide will show you what was the richest city in the world after the disastrous earthquakes that sank largely. A long English today is an archaeological open air. Nice walk in house folded by the earthquake.

    Visiting this fort was definitely one of the highlights of my entire trip to Kingston. It was too hot to do the city tour so we just opted for a tour of the fort. Don't skip this! Our tour guide, Andrew, was incredibly knowledgeable and really enhanced the visit so much. He was Able to add additional information to what was listed in the two small museums and explained so much about the fort and all the disasters it befell. Andrew is from Port Royal and showed us where he used to play in the tunnels below the fort as a child. Those tunnels are now filled in showing that the place is still sinking. Giddy house is a lot of fun to try to walk in. Andrew also picked fruit from the almond tree and showed us how to eat it then break the seed to get the nut. He was terrific and earned a great tip!

    A lovely little slice of history. The place is pretty and so are the surrounding areas and there's a well versed Historian waiting to tell you stories. I believe every nation can find a live of it's history here from when their ancestors rushed to the new world. It's cheap to get in too
