If you are interested in the history of Jamaica and its Maroon people this would be an excellent destination. The surrounding mountains are spectacular and the trails around Ambassabeth makes it possible to explore them. The cook Barbara will make local wild hog not to be missed. The site is run by members of the Windward Maroon community and the...

My wife and I took my parents here for two nights during one of their visits from the US. I can't say enough good things about this place: the food cooked by Barbara was delicious, especially the run down with fresh coconut milk; the cabins are comfortable and cozy; the guide (Steve) on the Cunha Cunha Pass Trail was very...

I traveled to Port Antonio with a college course and it was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The location is serene and absolutely gorgeous. You will have the opportunity to meet locals and engage with them as well as enjoy the privacy and peacefulness this resort has to offer. You can hike the CunnhaCunnha or bathe...

In all of my travels, I have found no place as endearing as the Ambassabeth Cabins. The ambiance of the cabins and the surrounding area made me feel completely emersed in Jamaican culture. From the colors of the cabins to the patterns in the linens, I felt as though I was truly a part of Jamaica. The most exciting/memorable parts...

I learned so much during my stay here that this review could be endless, but the most important thing is that I see the Bowden Pen Farmers as heroes. To build, maintain, and improve Ambassabeth Cabins, along with the Cunha-Cunha Pass and now, Neem Park, proves that through unity, even the most exploited communities can create success. It is a...
