Jamaica's "Matterhorn" rises to the clouds in magnificent splendour. Home to the world famous Blue Mountain coffee, this mountain range is a must visit. It can get really cool in the evenings, so be prepared for the temperature gradient as you make your way up. My wife and I did the bicycle tour, which was absolutely fantastic and highly recommended.

You haven't really visited Jamaica if you don't take the time to go into the Blue Mountains. A transformative experience. Worth taking the time. A more enriching experience than any commercial tour available.

Jamaica as 29 endemic species of birds, and you can see the majority in the park -- however, spend the time to find one of BirdsCaribbean's trained guides who can show you the birds precisely. You can get up the mountain by chartered taxi or jitney, but again it's best with a local guide. Wonderful views, clean clear air, amazing... More

If you like coffee you must do a trip into the Blu Mountains and visit a Coffee Plantation. Avoid the expensive Strawberry Hill for lunch though - there are other good, cheap restaurants there. Michael (Hughan) Clarke took me and did an excellent job: 1 (867 872-9633 or 775-5343

I think it is the best place in Kingston. Beautiful view , you could see the harbour and the city from the top of the mountain.

Plenty of guided tours available, Choose your level of hiking and do not miss the Blue mountains!! Be wary of the "customized" prices the tour operators offer you - do your research and ask around before shelling out your $$s

Having taking the gruelling trek by foot from night into the early morning, the Blue and John Crow Mountains are filled with awesomeness! The different wildlife, sounds, fruit trees like peaches, mangoes, lychee and strawberries. It is such a joyous feeling of accomplishment when you get to the peak. You want everyone to know you have been to the mountain... More

One of the most beautiful sites - as of yesterday, the Blue and John Crow Mountains have been named one of UNESCO's WORLD HERITAGE sites, thereby joining such noteworthy sites as the Taj Mahal and Acropolis

A must if you want to reach a "True High". The geographic location truly enhances the experience. The visitor is transported to a place before only dreamt of or read about. Must be included in your list of "100 things you must do before you die."
