Jah B’s Guest HouseFRIENDLY DORMITORY-CUM GUESTHOUSE RUN BY A LOCAL RASTA AND HIS FAMILY
Accommodations for the budget traveler
Located in the district of Whitfield Hall in Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, Jah B’s Guesthouse is on a working coffee farm about 3 hours from the Norman Manley Airport in Kingston with stunning views of the mountains. It is a simple, friendly dormitory-cum guesthouse run by a local Rasta and his family, with good ital food and is particularly popular with budget-minded travelers.
Getting there is part of the adventure
Getting to the guesthouse is an adventure all by itself. It’s a ride along narrow, rugged and treacherous (and scenic) mountain roads that foreigner drivers should not try by themselves – even with a 4WD vehicle. The best bet is to use the expert services of Jah B or his sons who do pickups at the airport and other locations in Kingston. But getting to Jah B’s will be worth it. You’ll love the peace, quiet, slow pace, beauty and simple life of the Blue Mountain village. Not to mention the coffee, the mangoes, the awesome sunrise hike to the summit as well as some of the coolest flowers you’ll see anywhere.
Very tasty ital cuisine
Jah B’s food is phenomenal. It’s Rastafarian ital (vegetarian) cuisine that is prepared using produce mostly grown by Jah B himself or by his hillside neighbors. He will be happy to give you a tour of the coffee, fruits, and vegetables he grows on his plantation.
Toke to your heart’s content
At Jah B’s you can choose to just chill, absorb the views and toke to your heart’s content. Guests are allowed to smoke anywhere on the property except in rooms, and there’s lots of local ganja to be had. Just ask Jah B. But there is also lots for the outdoorsy vacationer to do. They can, for example, hike the many mountain trails or tour the coffee plantations, rivers and ganja farms in the area. However, the preeminent activity is the early morning hike to catch the sunrise at the summit of the Blue Mountains.
