About

Wah gwaahn?!

Welcome to downdiroad.com!

As a Tourism & Hospitality professional living in Kingston, it has been a hobby of my friends & I to go exploring throughout Jamaica. Whether it’s going to a river in the countryside, or discovering a new restaurant, we find that when it comes to tourism and Jamaican culture we always want to be in the know. 

Up until the inception of this website, I have always catalogued my adventures via my social media pages, but friends and onlookers have always suggested that I document these adventures in a more formal manner. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to downdiroad.com!

With this website the team & I hope to share our adventures, while shedding some light on the tourism industry in Jamaica and various aspects of Jamaican culture. This blog started with a written focus, but with the introduction of our YouTube channel we have opened up a whole new world of visual, with the #DownDiRoad, #downdiroadLIVE, #chippinDownDiRoad & #DeTour series. We have been blessed to create of our DDRJamaica Integrated travel company and DDRMedia JA production company, so the potential for the growth of this movement has drastically increased!

Thank you all for joining us on this adventure, and if you’re reading this I implore you buckle up & journey with the crew as we go down di road! 🚗💨

Bless up!
