Description

Take a journey through the history of Port Royal to discover a city shaped by hurricanes, pirates, earthquakes, and fire. Your personal guide shows you around what was once the largest city in the Caribbean, all while sharing the remarkable heritage along its roads and coastal walls.

A ride from your hotel brings you to the sleepy fishing town along Jamaica's southern shore, lined with the ruins of old brick buildings that once marked the center of commerce in the Americas. Along the way, your guide relates stories that take you back to its former glory, from the heyday of privateers and pirates to the devastating earthquake of 1692 that left 90 percent of the city underwater.

Next, venture over to historic Fort Charles, where cannons still stand on the wall overlooking the sea. Stop at the Giddy House, an old munitions storehouse left slanted at a surreal angle after it partially sunk into the ground. Enjoy some time after your tour to explore the seafood restaurants that fill the modern town before you head back to your hotel.
