Large deposits of peace and quiet in the Blue Mountains.

By

Giving the figures provided by the tourist board for visitors to Jamaica ( almost entirely cruise ships and all inclusive hotels), we at Lime Tree calculate that less than 0.1% of tourists to the island make it to the Blue Mountains. Meaning ther are huge deposits of peace and quiet going unused. The Blue Mountains are one of the most natural, unspoiled and beautiful regions of Jamaica, be adventurous, treat yourself to the Blue Mountain experience.

 

Ants in the biscuits

A look back through old photos. The Blue Mountains has been our home for over 25 years. We’ve seen a lot of changes, though I am happy to report that the community of Lime Tree has remained largely the same and relatively undeveloped. For years we lived a very basic existence, no electric or piped water – and ants in the biscuits!

Return to Cinchona

By

After 60 years, artist, Angela Baker revisited Cinchona Gardens. In 1959, Angela and her future husband biked it to the gardens. Although the house has been there since the late 1800’s, Angela tells me there were no other habitations between Mavis Bank and the gardens. Also, the road was no better, or worse than today – bone jarring and teeth rattling!
I was hugely interested in Angela’s story, Angela really is an adventure traveller. Cinchona gardens are popular with our guests and my personal favourite excursion. Add this to my love of all things motorcycle, – what a cool photo!

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.
