Come join us in this very special get-away to the lush and beautiful island of Jamaica! Starting from USD $1,850 per personBOOK NOW
Join our first BLUE MOUNTAIN BLISS Tour in Jamaica! A special tour for nature and adventure lovers on a budget! Expect a rich experience and a variety of landscape. For 7 nights, we’ll take you across Portland and Kingston, exploring nature, culture and food! We’ll begin the trip in Portland at Seacliff Resort (4 nights) and finish off campings in the Blue Mountains at Rafjam Bed & Breakfast (3 nights). We’ll visit Kingston Central Masjid mosque, pray in peace, remember Allah, and enjoy an exquisite eight-course farm-to-table meal at Stush in the Bush organic farm. You’ll also have the opportunity to take in Jamaica’s unspoiled nature and swim in breathtaking waterfalls, beaches, and lagoons. We’ll hike up the famous Blue Mountains, where we’ll visit one of the island’s oldest Rasta communities and dissolve all ignorant misconceptions about the island and its proud people. This won’t be about all-day tanning, beachside braids, and gift shop Rasta hats (not that there’s anything wrong with that); we just want to rejuvenate you in a different way. After all, we travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us, right? We want to share the glory, struggles, and beauty of this island- a BEAST of an island, as you will find out! Plunge into fresh mineral baths, waterfalls and lagoons. Savour the natural and gastronomic wonders of Stush In The Bush; down to earth organic farming; as well as exclusive fine dining in the hills. Climb the Blue Mountains (it’s ok, no special gear necessary), visit the Rasta School of Vision and experience true local culture! This is your time to have an experience of a lifetime. Plan it and, as Jamaican’s say, reach!

Stush in the Bush organic farm: It is a love story, a magical fusion of Rastafari and chic. It is the blending of ‘Ital’ farming and exotic vegetables. It is the love of mother nature and the love of fine dining. It is rustic and it is gourmet. (5 hour drive from Portland to St-Ann’s)
After our farm visit, we will make our way to the iconic city of Kingston and spend our last 2 nights.
Hike up the Blue Mountains to visit a Rasta community we've been working with for many years.Late lunch at Eits Cafe (farm to table organic dining)

Yes, of course. We welcome everyone to travel with us: couples, singles and families (depending on the age of the children).
Our retreats are open to all, anyone from any part of the world, so you can expect to make plenty of new friends. From the first day you all meet at the airport as we pick you up, the journey of travel and building news friendships begins. We keep our groups small and intimate, with not more than 20-25 people.
We stay in Jamaican-owned villas and guest houses. Our accommodations are clean and comfortable. The emphasis is not on luxury, but on a practical room for a good night’s rest and grounds that are inspiring.
We room 2 or 3 guests per room with an en suite bathroom in each room. Men will room with men and women with women. Unless, of course, you’re travelling with your spouse or partner.
