Great Blue Mountains Accommodation in Jamaica

Jul 17, 2008
If you are looking for a hiking holiday or bird watching holiday in Jamaica, and you want Blue Mountain accommodation in an eco-cottage, then check out Lime Tree Farm

A Hiking Holiday in Jamaica or a bird watching holiday isn't what one normally associates with this Caribbean Island. Jamaica to most people is a land of rum, reggae and white sand beaches. The truth is that there is far more to Jamaica than that and you need to go to the Blue Mountains, and stay at Lime Tree Farm to experience some of the real Jamaica.

Lime Tree Farm is very much the place for the independent traveller, where you can enjoy all that the Blue Mountains have to offer the visitor. Here you will find friendly generous very smiley people, and you won't find this very often in the parts of the Caribbean that have been ruined by tourism, causing perhaps some bitterness amongst the locals.

If you can get a picture in your mind of relaxing on the terrace outside your holiday cottage, drinking Blue Mountain coffee flanked by hibiscus flowers, whilst watching hummingbirds hovering in the flower itself. There are ripening coffee berries and plantains within your line of vision and the amazing Blue Mountains panorama in the background. You are at peace with the world, slightly stiff in the legs after an exhilarating hike. At over 3000 feet up in the 7000 foot Blue Mountains this Jamaican eco-cottage guest house has three guest cottages, where you will be treated more like family than a paying guest. Each cottage has an en-suite bathroom, and a large bedroom so that an extra bed can easily be fitted in for additional family members.

The beds are so comfortable that there isn't a visitor who doesn't go into raptures about them.

Most, if not all of the guests will tell you about the view, and describe it in terms of outstanding, and possibly one of the best views anywhere in the world. They also talk warmly about the absolutely delicious organic locally grown food cooked to perfection by Suzie. You will get in your full board some of the best home made Jamaican food you can ever imagine.

Although many people come to Lime Tree Farm to use it as a base for a hiking holiday or a bird watching holiday, it is well worth taking the Mavis Bank Coffee factory Walk, to see how the world's most expensive coffee is produced. Another must is the Cinchona Botanical Gardens, named after the highly prized tree from which quinine came from. Whilst the Gardens are in a state of disrepair, it is so well worth a visit.

Lime Tree Farm is paradise for hikers and hill walkers, and you can be guided or not, but as a hiking holiday the Blue Mountains are second to none in the Caribbean, and from the summit of Blue Mountain itself you can see Cuba.
For the bird watching holiday enthusiast the Blue Mountains is the place to go to see many of the birds that are local to Jamaica. At least 12 endemic birds can be spotted on location at Lime Tree.

For a hiking holiday, a bird watching holiday, a totally relaxing holiday go to the Blue Mountains in Jamaica, and stay at the lovely Lime Tree Farm.
