Beautiful view

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."

Drove up the mountain to see the coffee factory - treacherous drive but worth it if you can handle a road that is wide enough for one vehicle yet has 2 to 3 vehicles at any time trying to pass you.

Visited the Creighton Plantation - fantastic presentation and great tour but be prepared to hike. Wear comfortable shoes. Bus trip up to the Plantation is not for the faint of heart or anyone suffering from vertigo!

Wasn't over the top because I am from St.Vincent which is very mountainous as well. The drive was pleasant. Taxi guy didn't know much about his island though. He knew more about the local gossip.
