A Letter From Mokko



by Ras Soloman Jackson (Mokko)


Come discover Jamaica and find something new about life. Why not come to the eastern end of Jamaica in the Parish of St. Thomas.

I am Ras Soloman Jackson (Mokko). I was born in St. Thomas on 22nd June, 1952. I grew up on Old Road and learned about roots from my father and another man in Sunning Hill. After leaving school, I went on a skill training program as a stone wall builder and worked at that for fifteen years.

Then I went to Portland Parish on the north side of Jamaica. That is where I became involved in tourism as a tour guide. I worked with people from different countries, taking them to places they wanted to know and go.

Now I started two cabins in Sunning Hill in St. Thomas, called Riverside Cool Cottages. I have guests from Canada, Italy and also U.S.A. in San Francisco, California and from Michigan.

We can stay at Riverside Cool Cottages and enjoy the farming town of Sunning Hill, or we can travel around beautiful Jamaica. Some places to go are:

  • Bath Fountain at the hot springs
  • Blue Mountain Peak
  • Raft on the Rio Grande
  • Reach Falls
  • Winnefred Beach
  • Morant Point Lighthouse
  • Frenchman's Cove
  • Nine Miles where Bob Marley's body lies
  • Bob Marley Museum
  • Marine Park
  • Visit nicest guesthouses, I will take you.

The motto for my business is, “I like to see people happy and be free. Smile with the rising sun.”
