The Scorn's Round Up

Wow… has it really been 3 years since my last Bacchanal Jamaica experience?
After 2015 these words come to mind:- "Why Oh Why Had I Forsaken Thee??"

>For anyone wanting to experience Bacchanal Jamaica Carnival follow our professional guidelines: - you are sure to have a marvellous adventure & vacation. Let's face it, Carnival is all about SUN, RUM and FUN (pun intended).


For those of you fortunate enough to be living in Jamaica you experience the full season which starts 6 weeks before the Easter weekend. However, for all non-residents we strongly advise you land in Jamaica on Good Friday and you leave Jamaica the Monday after the Bacchanal Jamaica parade. A total of 10 days! For all the working public that's 5 days from your yearly holiday allotment, but oh it's so worth it!


Accommodation:


Easter Weekend we spend in what the Jamaicans refer to as "country" and what us foreigners refer to as tropical paradise - Ocho Rios. Please note that even with the new highway if you land in Kingston the drive from Kingston to Ocho Rios is still a whopping 1 hour and fifteen minutes. Please be aware, there are tolls.


>We do not recommend driving this stretch to and from each day, so we strongly advise staying in Ocho Rios for the weekend of Good Friday to Easter Monday. Suggestions: Sandcastles Holiday, Ocean Sands, Mystic Ridge, Hibiscus Lodge, Jewel, RIU and if you are a baller there are numerous Sandals resorts.


The rest of your trip will mostly be spent in New Kingston. Various hotels are available such as Spanish Court, Pegasus & Knutsford Court Hotel; all of which are central to most of the events.


If push comes to shove, you can always crash by a friend, or a friend of a friend, or a friend of a sibling, etc etc … you know how that goes!!


Transport:


Rent A Car. Not anything fancy. Just something to get you from A to B. Depending on people to drive you places is a nightmare. Depending on people as a rule of thumb is a nightmare! Rent A Car … A "put put"!! And don't depend 100% on GPS, Google Maps, Waze to get you to the right destination.


Food:


At most hotels breakfast is usually included, so you would just need to consider lunch or dinner, depending on when the party is that day. We recommend maybe a budget of US$20 to US$30 a day. Scotchies and Sweetwood are good spots for Jerk and Ribbiz for the After Party. Safety!


Drinks:


Most of the events during Jamaica Carnival are drinks inclusive with one or two exceptions and they are cooler events. No need to worry there! Prices range from US$30 to US$90.


Events:


Trini Jungle Juice Carnival Connoisseurs recommended line-up:


Good Friday (Arrival date):-

Scorn's DO's and DON'TS for Bacchanal Jamaica:-


  • - Do bring your posse (circle of friends) with you. You have to experience this carnival with your peoples

  • - Do not miss any parties or limes. It’s a full week of events
  • - Do not speed when driving. Jamaican police officers are no joke (although they do mistake people for Machel)

  • - Do go to Hellshire for the local cuisine. although it is an "odd"location – the seafood food and the prices are fantastic

  • - Do not leave any valuables in any car, at any location, at any time!!

  • - Do go to Maiden Cay and enjoy the beautiful water, the marvellous sand and the unimaginable vibe and positive energy that it provides

  • - Do not wear your beads when jumping into the ocean … they will be lost

  • - Do get a SIM card (Digicel or LIME). WiFi is sketchy and roaming will dig out your eye

  • - Do drink Appleton Rum – VX, 21 Year or Reserve. Even if you are not a rum drinker, any one of these three (3) …. Heavenly

  • - Do try Wray and Nephew overproof Rum which is a local favourite. Be warned that it's the same an Puncheon.


A huge Big Up and Thank You goes out to the entire Bacchanal Jamaica Committee – you are the best thing since slice bread; Appleton Rum, Pure Country Juice, Red Bull, Kes, and all friends and family of Trini Jungle Juice ... you know who you are. Anybody who we have forgotten … we LOVE YOU still.


That's all the Carnival said … go through the galleries … look at the videos … and if you do get the feeling, vibe and energy … we shall see you in Jamaica 2016!


Bacchanal Jamaica ROCKS!
