Rasta Settlements in Jamaica

by King R.
(Brooklyn, NY)

QUESTION:


Hello,

I am an African-American who is a deep believer in Rastafarianism. I want to take my first trip to Jamaica, and I want to spend my time in nature and around serious Rastas.

How can I make this happen? By the way, my level of traveler's fear (of being robbed, killed, having to sleep in the woods, etc) is as close to
nonexistent as is possible while still being safe.

Thanks for any answer.

Hey King R,

Thanks for your interest. There are quite a few (and increasing) number of Rasta communities in Jamaica.

In addition, there are some that does offer an eco-tourism cultural attraction.

For example, there is the Rastafarian Indiginous Village in St. James (Montego Bay area) - Phone: 876 383-9068. It is open to visits
and guided tours so it could be an ideal start for you.

There was also one in the Sunning Hill Community in St. Thomas ( 876 849-1543. Do a quick Google search to see if you find more details and information on them.

More on the rastafarian faith here.

Stay in touch.
