“Early days of this monument”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

It's been 10 years since we were there. Amazing how this has changed. There was no entry fee, per say. I'm sure the driver paid some of the cash we gave him to these guys.
We hired a driver, this was one of the stops. When I asked the driver why we were here, he said to pay respect to a very good friend. His mother lives here and I'd like you to meet her. At the entrance was a small building (shack), where some gentlemen were hanging out and seemed to know our driver very well.
As we walked up the long driveway, children emerged from the fence line, curiously looking at us. We had school supplies and gave them some. We continued towards a house, seeing ganja plots all over, but had to pay if we wanted to take a picture. (can't remember the price). At the house, off to the right, encircled in a hand made fence, was a tomb and a head stone.
It was then, I realized it was Peter Tosh's grave site.
His mother was waiting for us on her porch (small house). We of course we paid her to have our picture taken with her.
So it was a buisness back then, they've just change how they run it now, and have added a bigger building at the entrance.

“come on Pablo!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

20 US dollars each is just not on. The guide book, 2 years old, said 6. There is very little to see, just the garden and the grave. Pablo might seem like a very nice person but doesn't tell you much, and I'd seriously like to know why they think they should charge so much money. Does Mum get it? - or does she only see the "dollar in her hand for the church" (prompted). It's time to lower the price guys, or in these days of internet more and more people will decide not to bother!

Totally worth the drive and the money. Took some great pics, hung out with Peters mom and paid homage to Peter Tosh.
