JTB On The Road


The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) is inviting Canadians vacationing in Jamaica to wander off their resorts for at least part of their stays.

Racquel Queensborough, business development manager for the board’s Canadian office, said Wednesday night that the board wants Canadians to “experience the destination, not just the resorts.” She said “sun and sand is great,” but Jamaica offers a host of activities for visitors, including adventure sports, among them surfing, and music festivals.

The tourism board is now hosting events in Ontario updating travel agents on what Jamaica offers tourists. Similar events were earlier held in the West.

Pictured at the Toronto event are Keith Kugler of Coco La Palm resort in Negril, Queensborough, Coralie Belman of the Let’s Get Out of Here travel agency, Judy Nash of the tourist board, and Robert Smith of Sandals.
