Trends / Unique Itineraries & Tours

With the next James Bond film being shot in Jamaica, it reminds us of all the other famous films from the franchise to use the beautiful Jamaican landscape as a backdrop. Here are a few to inspire (more) wanderlust this summer.

 

Before Daniel Craig’s James Bond, there was Sean Connery (and a slew of others), but specifically Dr. No comes to mind. The film, starring Sean Connery and Ursula Andress, was primarily filmed in Ocho Rios, or Crab Key as the fictional island was called in the film.

 

Other scenes in the film, one set at Queens Club, was actually the Liguinea Club in Kingston. This nod to local culture is followed by several other scenes showing off the region’s natural beauty in North Kingston along the stunning Blue Mountains.

 

Another Bond adaptation, Live and Let Die, starring Roger Moore, Yaphet Kotto and Jane Seymour, was filmed again in Ocho Rios, but at Couples San Souci. This film showed off more of the region’s iconic natural beauty, as well as it’s more tumultuous side.

 

A cemetery scene was constructed on Falmouth Road, north of Montego Bay as well as a bus chase scene along Montego Bay-Lucea Highway. Live and Let Die also took viewers through the popular Green Grotto Caves, located on Jamaica’s north coast.

 

Another famous setting in its own right, Rose Hall Great House is a haunted 18th-century plantation with a sorted history. Located in Montego Bay, you can see the old house with a makeshift graveyard — interesting considering the property has an existing graveyard — as well as a poppy field scene, actually an open lawn toward the back of the house.
