Greetings roadies! Back again! [Kaci Fennell voice]
It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve been here, but what can I say? Life happens, but #DownDiRoad is forever!
You can scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the images from our South Coast Par, but keep reading through for a short history lesson.
Let’s flashback to December 2018 when we hosted a small group of our friends for a prelude to the then upcoming DownDiRoad Tours project.

Our Hidden Beauty: River Par was an amazing time and we promised there would be something official in 2019. So happy to say that we finally did it! On June 8th, 2019 the team hosted our first official tour dubbed; the South Coast Par!
The idea was simple. We wanted to go somewhere that was a bit under explored by Kingstonians, but still had a lot of appeal. St. Elizabeth just seemed like a no brainer and we decided to curate an experience which would include the Joy Spence Appleton Estate Rum Experience as well as Floyd’s Pelican Bar as the main attractions. The promotional material was whipped up & we made it happen in two weeks, with a final count of 32 attendees! Not bad for a first run right?!?
The South Coast has been a constant topic on downdiroad.com, and we’ve covered both the Joy Spence Appleton Estate Rum Experience as well as Floyd’s Pelican Bar before, but it was a joy to give some of the fans and followers an opportunity to explore Jamaica and come par with us.

All in all, it was an awesome day. Everybody was happy and it was a real learning experience for both the DDR team & the patrons who came along. The rum was flowing & the energy was high. There is really nothing more that I could have asked for. Toast to everybody who came along, we are only just getting started! We are about to start planning for the next adventure in July. Where to next? Stay tuned to find out!
