Kanopi House, Blue Lagoon, Port Antonio, Jamaica

History
The Wesleyan preacher James Vowles arrived in Port Antonio as a Christian missionary and died from a fever a few months later.
Port Antonio was a sleepy coastal town until the 1880s, when Lorenzo Dow Baker started the banana trade in Jamaica and successfully promoted Port Antonio as a destination for wealthy American travellers. "Portie" became a "boom town". The banana trade, and the tourists who came in the banana boats, was once so large that at one time, weekly sailing from Port Antonio was greater than weekly sailing from the great English port of Liverpool.
