Why Carisbrook, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica

Well, I grew up in this small town; very small town, and when you visit you will get a true flavor of what life in rural Jamaican is like. This is actually close to Bamboo Avenue, which is also an unfamiliar Destination. One thing is that as its in the mountains its lush greenery. Everyone knows each other in this town its so small.

Carisbrook is so tiny that it does not even show on the map. My Primary School does and that’s pretty much the center of the district. It is located in the southern part of Jamaica in the parish of St. Elizabeth. It is very close to YS River, a tourist attraction.
