The breeze at this near the top of the mountain "escape" was a welcome respite from the summer heat. While the last leg of the "road" to this secluded gem was impassable without four wheel drive, the trip up was well worth the trek in getting there.

We were warmly welcomed at the airport by our host Sean and Geneva natives to the Westmoreland Parish and familiar with the locals and the mountain roads. They fed us with Jamaican cuisine at our request and Sean makes a great cup of cappucinno. We had guided trail hikes in the mountain forest where we saw many fruit trees and...

We really enjoyed our week in the treetops at the Good Hope Retreat. Quiet, relaxing, beautiful sunsets, delicious food, everything was lovely. We did go into Negril a couple times and down to Bluefields Beach, which was nice and not too touristy. The owners of Good Hope really tried to do everything to make our stay enjoyable.
