Traveling to the Cockpit Country is an extraordinary journey that reflects the nuance and vitality of one of the most ecologically diverse places on earth. This tour is a meandering tour across Cockpit Country, interacting with residents in local villages in the mountain communities.

The Cockpit Country is one of the most naturally pristine and culturally significant areas of Jamaica. Home to the indigenous Maroons and some 1500 species of rare plants and animal life. This area represents an essential portal into the roots of Jamaica's earliest beginnings and future sustainability.
More than an island experience, it provides a Jamaican enlightenment.

A Recent Review of this tour

Micheal is a very knowledgeable tour guide who knows the history of the maroons and the significance of cockpit country. He is also very accommodating of your needs/wants during the tour. He gave us a lot of information regarding the history/fruits/animals of the area. My only area of improvement is making the time at the village/hike longer. It felt short and I wanted to spend more time hiking the mountains.
