Devon House Heritage Tour with Ice-Cream from Runaway Bay

8. Devon House Heritage Tour with Ice-Cream from Runaway Bay

One of Kingston's highly visited historical landmarks, The Devon House Mansion is the architectural dream of Jamaica’s first black millionaire George Stiebel. Stiebel was among three wealthy Jamaicans who constructed elaborate homes during the late 19th century at the corner of Trafalgar Road and Hope Road, which fittingly became known as the Millionaires Corner. Although the other homes were eventually demolished to make way for modern development ventures, Stiebel’s legacy lives on within the beautifully maintained Devon House - a national monument declared in 1990 by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust. Many would be surprised, however, to learn that the early history of Devon House dates back to the mid-seventeenth century when Britain captured Jamaica from Spain. Today, one can still find this piece of Jamaica's history in the heart of Kingston with its welcoming ornate fountains, and palm trees on the front lawn. The guided tours inside the 2 story property allow each guest to peruse the louvred balconies, Venetian crystal chandeliers, silk wall hangings and period reproductions of its time, and at the end of the Mansion tour, each guest receives a sweet surprise!

Keep climbing up until you reach the very top of the falls, where you can take in a sweeping panorama over Ocho Rios and kick back at the Nana natural pool before beginning your descent down the stairs. Grab a bite to eat at the Jerk Pit or a refreshing drink at the bar before heading back to your hotel or cruise ship.
