Fodor's Review

It's often said that Kingston is the heartbeat of Jamaica, and at no time does that heart beat any louder than during the annual carnival. This colorful festival begins each year in February and culminates in the big parade in Kingston the first Sunday after Easter with a wonderful display of costumes. Other events are held throughout the island during the 10-week Bacchanal Jamaica carnival.
