“An unbelievable month”

Where to begin, as the heading says we stayed with Bigga and his family for 1 month. His guesthouse is located close to the beach, only a 5 minute walk. Groceries are a bit more difficult to get, we would have to get a shared taxi to a village. However getting a taxi is quiet simple. His garden bears the fruit of years of hard labor. Ask him for a tour around his garden and he'll you about all his trees, different kind of mango, bread fruit, jack fruit, ackee of course etc.

Bigga is genuinely a very friendly guy. In the beginnen we though the prices of tours were a bit steep but its is one worth it and secondly he is trustworthy what meant a lot to us, being two young girls travelling alone.

Gwen is an amazing cook and we enjoyed her food on several occasions when we were just too tired of either our internship or travelling! And very affordable, they keep a tally. And you just pay the bill when you leave.

Small things, there is only a cold shower and if you are looking for the party lifestyle maybe go to a different area. Since Bluefields is quiet rural.

p.s. King's bar on the beach is great, you can go snorkling with him Be aware of conmans, if you meet people on the beach just ask Bigga if you can trust them!

Thanks for all your kindness Bigga, Gwen and Suzie!

This was not my first trip to Jamaica, but it was my best trip thanks to Bigga and his wonderful family. My husband and I were guests of one of their cottages. The cottage was very clean, and within walking distance to the beach. It was also in a very safe area. My husband and I wanted to live like the locals and we did just that. When we wanted to explore Bigga was more than happy to taxi us around for a very reasonable fee. And Gwen's cooking, OMG. That woman can cook! We ate breakfast and dinner there each and everyday we were more amazed by her wonderful local cuisine. Fresh fish stew, curry chicken, and the best warm bread I've ever had. When we go back to Jamaica this is home!!!
