Our Forests & Waterfalls are Calling

Peek-A-Boo! Who's there? It is the rugged mountain treks and trails of The Jamaican Blue Mountain. In celebration of International Day of Forest and World Water Day following right behind, let us escape the city life and become one with nature. Trailblaizers and adventure seekers, it is time to get a little dirty with a Hike or Bike adventure through the mountainous terrain of Jamaica’s Blue Mountain. Tap into the thrill of the outdoors and get your adrenaline pumping for the adventure of a lifetime. On a journey to the mountain, there are some things that you cannot do without.

Here is a list of 5 MUST HAVES for your next adventure at the Blue Mountain:

1. Hiking Boots

Hiking Boots are a must for The Blues. On your 2.2 mile hike, your boots will provide your ankles with the protection and support needed to prevent unnecessary sprains and injuries. Hiking boots will also provide you with the necessary comfort to tackle the terrains as you go beyond and experience an all new side of Jamaica. As you tackle the rugged terrains and traverse through the tropical rainforest we want you to be safe doing it. So grab those hiking boots and let's push beyond for an exhilarating and safe experience at The Mountains.

2. Swimwear

Let us go to the beach! Well in this case it is a beautiful waterfall that pounds against the rocks and gushes down the mountainside. Make the most of this once in a lifetime experience and plunge into the rapids. In order to feel the cool fresh waters against your skin, you must bring swimwear. We want you to be free and comfortable to experience the falls in all its glory. Ensure you pack your swimwear and a few towels, because this is an experience you do not want to miss. Also walk with a dry suit that you can put on after a day of fun-filled activities. Revitalize your body and soul in the freshwater waterfall along The Blue.

3. Water Bottles

The Mountain is for those seeking a thrilling experience. It will have you sweating as you go beyond and get lost in nature. In feeling all the rush and sheer pleasure of this full day full body experience we want to ensure you stay hydrated. Therefore a water bottle is needed for the journey. It is important that you replace the fluid you are losing through sweat and stay alert on the journey of a lifetime. Getting dehydrated can slow you down and lead to discomfort. So, pack well and bring a bottle or two so you can fill up and enjoy. Afterall we are all for more adventures and less worries, so let's have all we need.

4. Insect Repellant/Sunscreen

Here is another important tip as you plan your trip to visit The Mountains. Walk with and apply sunscreen to protect your skin. On this adventure we want you to get the most of it and while enjoying the beautiful rays of Jamaican sunshine. Apply SPF 15 or higher at least 30 minutes before your hike. Ensure you reapply while on your journey. As you negotiate through the forest ensure you apply insect repellent. We want to ensure you are protected, so keep moisturized, keep bugs away and enjoy one of the best escapes in the world.

5. Camera

The world is ours to explore and we want you to capture some amazing memories as you experience nature in its purest untouched state. Capture the flowing cascades, the panoramic views of the mountain side, the beautiful blends of greens and the many amazing wonders on the trails. As you clinch to the mountainside and tackle the terrains of the peaks, make sure to take a few shots, so that you can look back like a true conqueror. Pack your camera, because it is a must have on your trip to the great Blue Mountain.

6. Vibes

In true Caribbean style, you have to get BRAWTA (a little extra/more) . The final must have on your trip to The Mountain is a good vibe.
