Jammin’ Jamaica gets guide ahead of 50th anniversary celebrations

With a free mobile travel guide for Jammin’ Jamaica, travellers looking to participate in the lively celebrations taking place across Jamaica this month to mark the island’s 50th anniversary of independence need look no further than their mobile phones.

Jamaica.City.Mobi, which launched three years ago, showcases the stunning landscape, history and culture that is unique to Jamaica, via a state of the art tool that is quick to download and easy to use.

The directory, which is compatible with desktops or mobile phones, lists everything visitors to the balmy Caribbean hideaway could possibly wish to know about the sunny destination during their stay.

Aside from the many celebrations set to place across the island in July, Jamaica is also home to some famous tourism hotspots, including the luscious Blue Mountains; Dolphin Cove; the Appleton Rum Estate; Green Grotto Caves; St Ann’s Bay and Treasure Beach.

Travellers can make the most of world-class reefs, vast stretches of palm-fringed sand, hiking tours, remote fishing villages, pristine waterfalls, cosmopolitan cities, and spectacular scenery.

Commenting on the guide, Kelly Footit, head of development at World Group said: “As Jamaica gears up to celebrate its 50th anniversary of independence, a number of celebrations and events are expected to take place in Jamaica at this important time.

“Our mobile guide should go hand in hand with these celebrations and help facilitate great holidays for travellers looking to make the most of their stay.”

The Jamaica mobile guide – created by leading mobile web development company World Mobi Limited – is available free of charge at Jamaica.City.Mobi.

A number of additional Jamaican city guides have also been rolled out to provide more specific information to tourists on Jamaica’s popular resort destinations.

Ocho Rios (OchoRios.City.Mobi), Montego Bay (MontegoBay.Mobi), Kingston (Kingston.Mobi) and Negril (Negril.City.Mobi) showcase the highlights of these specific spots around the island.

Each guide includes extensive information ranging from accommodations, to restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and transport.

In addition there is emergency information to hand. 

Other innovative features include a currency converter and translating tool while web links and contact details are provided for all the featured services.

Designed specifically for the needs of travellers on the go, the guides load efficiently and reduce download costs for the user.
