As Jamaicans, our friends continue to ask us, “What to see in Jamaica and where are some of the places to go once we are there?
At “Ocho Rios Jerk” Restaurant in Jensen Beach Florida, customers dine with Robin daily and enjoy the succulent mouth watering authentic Jamaican dishes . With the friendly atmosphere and superior customer service, customers often strike up many conversations regarding their experience in Jamaica. It’s absolutely humbling yet fascinating to hear the passion the customers share with us about their visit(s) to Jamaica. They talked about various hot spots around the island, then their eyes open wide and said, “the foods were fabulous and how well they were treated by the local people.” For
Then there are the other customers who said, they have always love Jamaican food and music and that they are planning their first visit to Jamaica. The questions they asked were, “What to see in Jamaica? What to do in Jamaica? Where do I go first? Is Jamaica as beautiful as everyone is saying? Then they asked, “Where in Jamaica are you from? How far is that from where Bob Marley was born?” The questions are quite normal for anyone planning to visit somewhere new, especially a foreign country. But it continues to amaze us of the international brand Jamaica has become. Jamaica celebrate’s there 50th independence anniversary on August 6, 2012 and it is simply amazing how much the country has accomplish in such a short period.
When customers were not asking questions about Jamaica, they would share their stories of their visit(s) to Jamaica. Some customers share their beautiful vacation photos in Jamaica with us. It’s pretty amusing to see a customer reaction when they tell us about a particular attraction(s) in Jamaica and we say no, we have not been there. Then we explained, we are always in Jamaica for both business and pleasure but because we are Jamaicans, many times we take things for granted. Then someone will say, “its always the case, I have lived in New York for sixty+ years and never been to the Empire State Building
or visited The Statue of Liberty.” Then we agree on, “where there is life, there is hope.”
