Jamaican Nightlife in “Sunshine City” Portmore

It is no secret that Jamaica is one of the warmest, hypest places to party in the Caribbean. In Jamaica there is a party every night. These can be theme parties in small communities, events or clubbing parties. Just a few minutes outside of Kingston is Portmore dubbed as “The Sunshine City” because of the lack of rain?

Portmore is a coastal city located in the Parish of St. Catherine. It was developed in the late 1960’s by the West Indies Home Contractors as a way to alleviate Kingston’s overpopulation population issues. This new city is built on mainly re-claimed swamp land and boast a flat plain which is said to prevent flooding. The first city to be successfully set up in Portmore was called “Independent City “which in essence was a suburban City. Historically, it is believed that in the days before Columbus came to the island of Jamaica, the Arawaks (the first inhabitants) of the Island would bury their dead in caverns. The nearby city called “Port Henderson” hill was one of these places believed to be “riddled” with caverns and is home to the famous “Two Sisters Cave”. The caves were once a ceremonial site for the Tainos that collapsed into a sinkhole over the years to form a beautiful pond with glistening blue waters inside the cave. Today, Portmore is fast coming one of the most popular nightlife spots which attracts people from neighboring parishes and even those who are at a greater distance. If you are planning a Trip to Jamaica, here are some of the places in Portmore you need to be.
