Port Royal JamaicaPre 1692 and Post 1692 The story of Port Royal Jamaica is fitting for any modern day movie. Once known as the “richest and wickedest” city on earth, Port Royal is now known as a small quiet fishing village. From pirates and wealth to earthquakes and peace, Port Royal has been transformed into perhaps the most peaceful city in Jamaica. A visit to Kingston is not complete without a tour of this city. This is perhaps the only“city” in Jamaica that you can tour in its entirety in one day.
