The most impressive and exciting part of you visiting one of these a crazy all night parties are the wild dancehall moves and party fashion that you’ll find at these events. You’ll also see that Jamaica is the land of  whining– twerking if that’s what you call it.  The street dances normally start late in the night and continues until the sun rise in the mornings, so don’t even think of turning up before midnight. So pace yourself, you’ll need the energy.

After pulling an all-nighter, just head back to your hotel and sleep late. If you wake up before midday, you can spend a lazy day at the beach in Hellshire. If you are up for it again there’ll be another rocking party on. After all, you’re in Jamaica, and a good time is not hard to find.
