Ask the staff at the resort - many, many people grow mint for tea in their yards, I guarantee you can find it.

mint is amazing in Jamaica! Suz is right anyone should be able to help you-maybe even take you to the hills to pick some yourself. Great crops are grown in that area!

My friends have a home in Manchester on an old mint plantation-I took some mint to my bushbabys grandparents in Mobay and they said it was the best mint they ever had! so like coffee-there is all kinds of mint in Jamaica!

We stay at Breezes Runaway Bay. For the past few years now they have been making Mojitos (at the lobby bar only). They don't bring it in though, they grow it on property in a greenhouse. They have a harder time keeping limes in stock.
