Why do Rastas have dreadlocks? Who is Haile Selassie? What do the colors mean?  This tour is designed to expand your knowledge of Rastafari.  We'll start with a visit to the Rastafari Indigineous Village in St. James a little outside of Montego Bay.  During this tour you'll learn the truth about Rastafari, dispel some of your own myths and get to know this subpopulation of Jamaica a little better. Next, we'll head 1.5 hours west to have lunch in Negril.  Lunch options can take the form of Sweet Spice Restaurant (indoor) or 3 Spice Restaurant (outdoors).  Since this is an all Rasta day, let us know if you'd prefer some "ital" food selections.  After lunch, we'll continue our journey of enlightenment at the Abba Jannehoy Place.  Here you’ll learn more about the unique lifestyle of Rasta men and women when you meet Janhoi Jaja, a Rastafari photographer who will take you on a journey through his home, created to showcase the rasta way of life.  A form of spiritual cleansing, you'll connect with Mother Nature and appreciate the simple things in life. 

Rastafari Indigenous Village – St James

This tour of the Rastafari Indigenous Village will include a lesson about the Rastafari movement, how the earth’s herbs and spices can be used to treat many health ailments, and how to prepare an “Ital” meal.  One common misconception about Jamaica by foreigners is that everyone has dreadlocks and is Rastafari.  Rastafari men, women, and children are actually part of the minority.  Rastafari is less of a religion, and more so a way of life.  Rastafari idrens and sistrens strive to protect and nurture Mother Earth.  They are committed to improving, collaborating with, and becoming one with the human race.  Rastafari are not worldly people, consumed by consumerism; they remind you that being stress free is a result of simplicity.  Learn more about how their philosophy is put into action at Rastafari Indigenous Village. 

Abba Janehoy Place

A truly serene experience.  Spend time with Janhoi Jaja, a Rastafari photographer who will show you around his land including his garden and outdoor showers.  The primary water source for his home is rain water purified with charcoal.  This will be a tour in which you will be completely immersed in the wealth of knowledge that Janhoi Jaja provides.  Ask questions, take in the environment and leave with the appreciation of a new perspective.
