Jamaica

Hiking to Mount Felix

 

Just northwest of Sunning Hill lies the small town of Mount Felix. You walk down the road and over the bridge to see it.

Jamaica Hiking Reggae Falls

Reggae Falls is a good place to go see, but even better yet, it is a good place to go with a group for a cookout and a day of relaxation. There you can swim, explore your surroundings, sunbathe and climb to the top of the falls.

The falls was a hydro-electric plant, but storms "mash up" most of the machinery and the plant closed. Now the water cascades over the dam's concrete lip, making a deep swimming pool at the base.

A Big Up to Dwight!

We recently learned we lost our friend , Dwight, from Jamaica. Dwight was Mokko's friend since they were pickneys, they were neighbors and business partners on the farm. They were like brothers.

Jamaica Rasta Ecotourism Sunning Hill Community

 

In Sunning Hill Community, you experience Jamaican living. You move with a Jamaican rhythm and pace and do as the locals do.

Things to do:

 

Jamaica Hiking: Slave Quarters

Hike to an abandon slave quarters, located in St. Thomas Parish, close to Mokko's and on the way to the Rasta Family's house. It was made by the hands of slaves out of white lime and cow shit, mixed with water brought from a nearby stream. All of the rocks are from the surrounding area.

Jamaica Kite Surfing

I have been to the Bounty Bay numerous times, but every single time I enter the beach it takes my breath. The color of the water, shades of almond trees, swinging hammocks and kites scattered along the beach resting before they will get hooked up on someone's harnest.

 

And they make it look so easy!  One of the instructors, before his students arrive,  just comes, prepares a 12m kite, takes a board and next thing you see him hanging upside down in the air, making salto's and carried with the wind deeper into the Caribbean.

 

Hiking in Jamaica | Rasta Family

If you go hiking from Mokko's toward Bath, in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, past the abandon slave quarters, you will come the Rasta family's house.

Nathan and Sandra are hillside farmers. Nathan will delight in teaching you Rasta knowlege and organic farming techniques. He loves to teach! You may be able to set up a day to work on the farm and learn/experience in a hands on manner.

 

 

 

Feed De People Dem

A rainy day in Sunning Hill, Jamaica does not deter the townsfolk from participating in a community meal cooked on the banks of the local river.

Produced and organized by Strate and chefs Coke Dog and Moshi, they supply a sumptuous meal of rice and peas, brown stew chicken, juice and wine for all.
