Kingston Mini Guide
Located on the south east coast, Kingston is home to around 700,000 inhabitants and is the capital of Jamaica. Having a long history steeped with natural disasters such as the earthquakes of 1692 and 1907 the city has had to be rebuilt. The historical buildings had been destroyed and therefore Kingston has fairly recently built houses and office buildings.
The city has a huge influence from reggae music. Bob Marley, Sean Paul and Beenie Man are Kingston's most famous superstars. Using a cheap hire car in Kingston from Rhino you can go and see some of the Islands most prized attractions. The Bob Marley Museum - situated on Hope Road, number 56, where there are screenings of his music, life and memories. He wrote his songs and eventually passed away there at the tender age of 36. The house is a sanctuary for many and it is a must see when visiting Jamaica.
Hope Botanical Gardens - Step away from your hire car and experience 50 acres of beautiful gardens and perfectly manicured lawns. It houses a small zoo, an aviary and is open all day from 8.30am to 6.30pm.
Spanish Town - during the Spanish ruling of Kingston between 1662-1872 you can see the Mediterranean influence there. Crisp white homes with the oldest Anglican church outside of the UK,
St James' Cathedral. Our friendly car hire partners will be able to give you directions and tourist information. We have many collection points around Kingston including Norman Manley Airport (KIN).
