Sunflower Beach Resort & Villas - Meet the People
What better way to experience the culture of a nation than through its people? For travelers seeking insight into the Jamaican experience and the warm welcome of a Jamaican friend, the island's Meet-the-People program provides an ideal option. Launched in 1968 by The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB), the Meet-The-People program reaches out to visitors curious to explore the culture of this vibrant Caribbean island, taking them beyond the traditional resort and beach setting into the colorful realm of Jamaica's lifestyle, tradition and customs.
Visitors wishing to take part in the Meet-the-People program are teamed up with Jamaican hosts or volunteers who share a common profession, hobby or interest, free of cost. In true Jamaican fashion, these volunteers offer a hand of friendship and hospitality to visitors who genuinely want to know Jamaicans and the Jamaican way of life.
Meet the People allows the visitor to meet a Jamaican who can enhance their enjoyment of the real Jamaica. Guests may get to meet a family or know a fellow musician, doctor, photographer, nurse, teacher or artist, or participate in a wide range of activities, such as hiking, shopping at a local craft or food market, visit a church, tour a facility or have a chat over Jamaica's famous Blue Mountain coffee.
Whatever the focus, these activities are uniquely Jamaican, providing an island experience that only locals can create, and a pathway to the unique aspects of Jamaica's rich endearing heritage in people, culture, music, cuisine and natural landscape.
