Jamaica may be synonymous with reggae, but if you ask Marlene Wright Evans, that’s just the tip of the tropical iceberg. “In January we started off with a jazz festival. And last year we had Celine Dione. That was our biggest-ever concert. People are still talking about it,” the Jamaica Urban Transit scheduler tells Carter Elite Travel host Lulu Carter. “This year we’re havin’ a fashion week, a kite festival, a health expo. Also theatre—we’re havin’ special shows in honor of our 50th anniverary. Best of all, we go to the market every morning and buy the freshest food—real Jamaican cooking that you won’t get in a hotel or on the street.”
