Staycationing in Jamaica can be a great experience. Jamaica has so many hidden gems and one such place is Fisherman’s Inn, in Falmouth, Trelawny. There are so many parts of the island I haven’t seen and so this year I decided to go for it!
The COVID-19 cases in the parish of Trelawny (34 cases as of September 2020) are small in comparison to Kingston and St. Andrew (over 1,195 cases) makes Trelawny a low-risk zone for exposure to the virus.
KIA CARNIVAL 2020 FITS UP TO 8 PEOPLE
Love Not Likes Ja (a blogger network I founded) partnered with Enterprise Rent-A-Car Jamaica for the trip to Falmouth. We decided to go with the KIA Carnival 2020 model, which fit all eight of us very comfortably.
The features of the car are:
- Fits up to 8-10 people
- 8-speed automatic transmission.
- Multi-function steering wheel
- Diesel engine (much better for fuel efficiency)
- The 7.0-inch infotainment display supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while also giving you a good-quality reversing camera.
- Reverse parking sensors
- Automatic headlights
- Lane-departure warning and
- Adaptive cruise control.
KIA and Honda family models include sedan to SUVs, so if you wanted a CITY or CRV you have options.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car on Oxford Road (beside ATL Automotive dealership) has a complete clean pledge which is an enhanced sanitation standard and it’s consistently audited.
The General Manager, Mark Pike says “the benefit of renting with us is that we have Jamaica’s newest fleet of 2019/20 Kia and Honda models, with the highest standards in service. Our rental brands are always #1 in service across all online platforms. You also have the option for complete online check-in, payment via an online link, the rental agreement signed online.”

Once we arrived in Rock Wharf Falmouth, Trelawny, we had an amazing view of the Luminous Lagoon off the docks of Fisherman’s Inn. I used a tripod with a self-timer to take pictures. Purchase one here
My king-sized room on the second floor of the white-washed building has a view overlooking Glistening Waters, which is a sight to behold.
We had our meals at Hopscotch Jerk Centre which serves traditional Jamaican cuisine —jerk pork, chicken or fried and steamed fish, with sides of fried breadfruit, fried dumpling, and green banana.
TOUR OF LAGOON
At 7:30 pm we took the lagoon tour from the dock at Fisherman’s Inn which can be booked through the hotel. There are only a few other places in the world where you can experience nature’s light show on the water, called bioluminescence.
According to Visit Jamaica’s website, “At night, the lagoon sparkles and glistens when disturbed, as these microscopic organisms produce an eerie glow, reflecting the outlines of fish and other objects in the water. The Luminous Lagoon is said to be the largest and most brilliant of four in the world, a fact that continually attracts and awes visitors and scientists from around the world.
We didn’t get to have the bioluminescence experience because of rain, so if you want to know about that, read fellow LNL member DiedreinWanderland’s review of the Luminous Lagoon, here
