To celebrate the release of the latest James Bond film, the Jamaica Tourist Board has released behind-the-scenes footage of ‘No Time To Die.’ The exclusive footage showcases cast and crew as well as some of the locations shot in Jamaica.
The Caribbean island nation is a key location in ‘No Time To Die’ where Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life. His peace is short-lived when his old friend from the CIA, Felix Leiter, turns up asking for help.
Jamaica is the birthplace of 007, where Ian Fleming created and wrote the Bond novels. The island also features in the first James Bond film, ‘Dr. No’ (1962), as well as in ‘Live And Let Die’ (1973).
The Jamaica Tourist Board is delighted to play such a significant role in the 25th James Bond film. “Bond for us means we are a place for beginnings, but we are also a place for great endings,” said Hon. Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism for Jamaica. Hon. Olivia Grange, Jamaica’s Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, comments, “It’s really something we have dreamt about and we are happy that it’s going to be a reality.”
WestJet announced Tuesday that it will extend its temporary suspension of international sun flights to destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean until June 4, 2021.
“We are extending our suspension with the clear expectation that as more Canadians are vaccinated, government policy will transition,” said Ed Sims, WestJet President and CEO.
“We continue to advocate for the replacement of mandatory hotel quarantines with a testing regime that is equitable and consistent with global standards at all points of entry into our country. Alongside an accelerated and successful vaccine rollout, this policy transition will support the safe restart of travel and help stimulate the Canadian economy, where one in ten jobs are tourism related.”
Passengers with affected itineraries will be proactively notified of the cancellations. Since November 1, 2020, WestJet has been providing refunds for all travellers, regardless of fare class booked where WestJet initiated the cancellation.

Just got back from my first trip to Cuba, a country that I’ve been wanting to visit for a long time. It totally delivered.
Music is everywhere, old American cars are omnipresent and not just on show for tourists and the people love life and are more than happy to share their country with visitors.
Here is some of what I saw during my short stay there:
