Escape the ordinary and instead plan for an unforgettable time when you spend your New Year’s celebration in Jamaica. Our island nation is the perfect location to find incredible activities to bring in the new year. Take a look below at how you can spend a 2019 Jamaica New Years:
Celebrate with a Local Church
The residents of Jamaica understand the importance of community and church. Religious families can bring in the new year with a midnight service offered by one of the many churches on the island. The Family Church on the Rock found in Montego Bay and Fellowship Tabernacle found in Kingston are some of the most popular services available for New Year’s. Come experience a New Year’s celebration with the vibrant community of Jamaica.
Harbour Fest and Fireworks
If you want to take the family to an all-ages event for the New Year’s holiday, make sure you visit Kingston. The downtown neighborhood puts on Harbour Fest and Fireworks each year for incredible live music, all-ages activities, and of course, rum for the adults! Delicious Jamaican cuisine will be available from vendors selling their incredible food. Of course, no New Year’s celebration would be complete without a fireworks display—and this one looks even more dazzling as it reflects off the harbor.
Another great area on Jamaica that is known for unbelievable New Year’s Eve events is Negril Beach. This area is most recognized for the beautiful coastline to explore by land or sea. Negril Beach hosts a variety of parties that feature live music, plenty of dancing, and fireworks. All you have to do is show up and find the closest beach party happening near you!
Go for a Hike
Jamaica has a warm and comfortable climate all year round, making it the ideal winter destination. While you are visiting for New Year’s, make sure you get out and explore the island. Head over to Westmoreland and find the Mayfield Falls, a breathtaking view on this part of the island. The hike can be as short as 45 minutes or be as long as several hours, depending on how long you want to be out on the trail. Make sure to experience the beauty of Jamaica during your New Year’s adventure to the island!
