Me and my friend decided to get this completly different experience of Jamaica. So we went to Jah'bs. His son Alex picked us up from the airport. He was really nice and friendly. If you dont have a car I would definetly recommend him to pick you up cause the roads are so narrow and steep I dont think a regular taxi or a car would make it. He is driving fast but you can feel that he has been driving the same roads for some time. Jah B's place has amazing view and its so relaxing. Very simple but makes you appreciate things in life.
One thing I would really recommend that nobody mention on tripadvisor. Cause you will be so far away from civization stop on the way to buy some water and some snacks that can stay good without fridge. Also if you want some beverages. Especially some snacks. He cooks really good vegetarian food but they take some time to prepare it so it would be really helpfull to have some snack on us. Of course you have to have the hand grinded blue mountain coffee.
Other things we found lucking is comunication before tours. Nobody informed us about the length of the tours and what we should take with us especially the farm tour which sounded like 15 minutes away at the end we walked for 2 hours there and 2 back up the hill in the midday sun without any water. What saved us was some berries we found and kept eating them just to get little of the juice to moist our dry mouths. The same with the peak tour. Take some water and some snacks as bananas or some musli bars cause you will need them. We didnt plan to do the peak tour but it was amazing but very exhausting. Again nobody informs you but bring with you flashlights cause we had to use our mobile phones instead. They dont provide you with anything.
These are the things that nobody mention here and we would find pretty usefull before the trip.
But overall this was amazing experience and I will never forget it. Jah' B was great!!!!!
