2018/19 No increase in full board rates.

By

While we now offer more options re accommodation in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica for budget travellers – shared rooms and use of kitchen facilities, for the 2018/19 tourist season, the cost of full board accommodation remains unchanged. We have made small increases in Kingston return transfers and excursion rates. This is in line with rising (constantly) fuel prices.

Lime Tree Farm still remains the best value for your visit to the Blue Mountains. All cottages have en suite bathrooms, hot water and a private balcony.

The Blue Mountains are, arguably, the most beautiful, unspoiled and authentic region of Jamaica. It also attracts the least amount of tourists.

So, if you really want to get away from everything – and everyone, this is the place.

 

 

Winter birds arriving 2018

By

The winter birds are arriving for their annual holiday in the Blue Mountains. Traditionally, this is a busy time for us at Lime Tree Farm with keen birders from all over the world visiting. As a tropical island, Jamaica is a bird haven all year round. Over the course of a year and counting the wide range of migrant species, more than 300 bird species may be seen in Jamaica. Of them, more than 125 breed on the island, and 28 are found nowhere else in the world. We offer competitive birding packages individually tailored to suit any itinerary.

Cascara – Coffee Cherry Tea

By

One drink you must try when you’re at Lime Tree Farm is the delicious trendy new drink ‘Cascara’ or coffee cherry tea (not to be confused with ‘ cascara segrada’.)  The Blue Mountain coffee skin is removed washed and sun dried and then served as a hot or cold tea, with honey, ginger, cinnamon or nutmeg. A sweet refreshing drink with very little caffeine!

New tings a gwaan fi 2018/19

Lime Tree Farm will shortly have a brand new website for the 2018/19 tourist season. We are making a number of changes to the property also.
Two new areas will be available to guests, Breezy Hollow (designed by my wife Tifony) and the yet to be named (by a guest?) large patio area below ‘Nyaam Inna ya’.
We are also introducing new options for budget travellers to Jamaica. As they say – watch this space.

Lime Tree Farm Camping

By

After a pleasant night camping at Lime Tree, we decided, since the weather was holding up  to ‘up sticks’ and head for Cinchona Botanical gardens for a night. It really was the most beautiful, serene and tranquil night. We cooked over an open fire and brewed fresh Blue Mountain coffee – heaven.

Canadian Birds a welcome sight during Hurricane Season at Lime Tree Farm!

By

We’ve had a couple of visits lately from an unusual type of bird – The Canadian Airforce search & rescue wing have come to Jamaica to assist the Jamaican Defence Force in the event of a hurricane.
Three helicopters & their crews are stationed at Up Park Camp in Kingston & have dropped in for a couple of cups of coffee, I have to say it’s nice to know their here, so far we’ve had a very quiet storm season so lets hope they just come for coffee & aren’t needed on more serious business!
