Tryall Villas Jamaica
History Surrounding Tryall Villas, Jamaica
From pirate haven to reggae heartland, a trip to Jamaica is a visit to one of the most beautiful, historic and culturally fascinating islands in the Caribbean. Lush and green, rich in resources, famous for its food and music, Jamaica vacations are a big draw for visitors from everywhere around the world.
The third largest island in the Caribbean, Jamaica was originally settled by the Taino and Arawak people, who called the island “Xaymaca”, or “land of wood and water”. The first European to lay eyes on Jamaica was Christopher Columbus in 1494, who is said to have described it as “the fairest isle mine eyes ever beheld.” From that time forward, Jamaica became valuable real estate for the growing markets of Europe, feeding the world's increasing demand for sugar. Settled by the Spanish, raided by pirates, worked by African slaves and taken over by the British, the island has seen many settlers, and many battles.
The Taino and Arawak peoples lived mostly along the island's south coast, particularly around Old Harbour. It was the Spanish who settled the area around St. Ann's Bay, near the town now known as Spanish Town. Pirates, including the feared Henry Morgan, moved in around Port Royal, once known as the “wickedest city on earth” and today a sleepy fishing village. However, it was the British who left the strongest imprint on the island. By the 18th century, Jamaica was producing nearly a quarter of the world's sugar, grown on British plantations, and worked by thousands of African slaves brought to the island in chains.
After emancipation in the late 1800s, liberated slaves moved into the Blue Mountains in the island's picturesque interior, and workers were brought in from China and India, building the unique mix of cultures and people that today make up a vibrant and thriving Jamaica.
On any Jamaica holidays, one of the highlights is undoubtedly a visit to Dunn's River Falls, a stunning series of pools and waterfalls that can be climbed like a ladder. Once the location of a raging battle between the Spanish and the English in the 1600s, it is the most visited attraction on the island.
The former plantation Great Houses are also popular stops on most trips to Jamaica, giving visitors a glimpse at the grand agricultural past of the island. Prospect Plantation, just east of Ocho Rios, is a working plantation showing visitors how bananas, coffee and sugarcane are grown. Rose Hall is one of the most popular Great Houses for a visit, as it is one of the most beautiful on the island, and widely rumored to be haunted by the ghost of its owner, Annie Palmer, also known as the White Witch of Rose Hall.
Today, a trip to Jamaica provides all the highlights of a fascinated blended culture that has evolved and grown into a singular and powerful identity. A Jamaica vacation offers visitors one-of-a-kind cuisine that will delight the taste buds with jerk chicken, fresh seafood and unique dishes such as ackee and roti. There is also the distinct Jamaican patois, a language spoken only here that blends English with elements of West African dialects spoken by the generations of slaves. Add in the incredible rhythms of Jamaican music, and it is easy to see how Jamaica holidays are distinct and delightful.
