Best time to go to Jamaica

Christmas Market or Grand Market 2019

Even without ice and snow, you can still feel the spirit of Jamaican Christmas

Early Christmas morning, children, dressed in best or new clothing, take their parents by the hand and accompany them to the spectacular Grand Market (often called Gran Market) as it is considered to be the highlight of the holiday. Gran Market is held in the major towns all over Jamaica.

Christmas Market opens around 6.00 p.m. and works until the morning! The stalls, houses, and streets are usually brightly decorated, while popular local bands entertain people. Street vendors sell boiled corn, jerk chicken, sugarcane and candy canes.
