Trip Planner:   Caribbean  /  Jamaica  /  Nine Miles

Nine Miles, Jamaica

3.2
Stroll through the home town of the legendary Bob Marley at Nine Miles. See where Marley drew his inspiration from as you tour his childhood home, filled with memorabilia collected throughout his long career. Listen to a musical tribute to the reggae icon and later pay your respects at the grave sites of both Bob and Mama Marley. A friendly guide will elaborate on Bob’s career and his time in the town. Marijuana is smoked openly here and the scent can be strong, so reconsider your decision to visit if you're sensitive to smoke or are traveling with small children.

  • It is more the legend and Bob cliche that what you have to do there. To see what it is worth but nothing buy cigars or brownies. Cariiiiiiisimos. What is well worth is the rise and the landscape you see when you go heading to the place. Do not buy anything else.

  • You can visit this place. I write on a freshly 2listopada 2017 yet Jamaican. We were two days ago. Getting there is a challenge. Knowledge of the language (Guide) and a good GPS is essential. You have to have iron nerves driving a rented car. Despite the almost 40letniego experience in conducting car distance 186km I made a port for more than four hours-roads are particularly vulnerable, and he placed second in the not assimilating this does often ride on the third. When you reach the order to immediately need to be guided to the giant blue, steel gates. Are closed, but before the offensive jamajczykami. Do not even go into them in any discussions the gate will open, where you can enter and safely Park your car. Currently the cost of the tour and it is only with a guide is $25 per person + gratuity before farewell + obligatory second tip for group performances. Photos can be doing everywhere outside the mausoleum, where you enter barefoot-no video, no photos. But Note! Is a Polish accent in the mausoleum. Centrally in the sarcophagus in the Bob Marley stop rastafarianskiej shell is a large image of the Polish Mother of Czestochowa.

  • Nine miles was already a trip of a different kind! On to the legendary King of reggae: BOB MARLEY! Birthplace and final resting place of the reggae artist. The first should be mentioned, that this trip such as Negril from will devour most of the day! Well, this tour can be with for example the Dunn, BB´s tour River falls or how we did it with a whiter River bamboo and lagoon connecting the luminous -. The entrance fee for nine mile is $25. Clear everything there is very commercial and the descendants of reggae stars "milk" this cow as good as it gets but that was us no matter... we want to Bob and worked also. Are all the guides on the spot, I'd say: deep relaxed and funny on it ;) What is there to see: mausoleum of Bob Marley and his mother, the premises of the family, Bob BB´s small hut with the famous "single bed", many original photos, records and all sorts. Conclusion: It was a very special experience for us and clearly preferable. You should not shy away away from the because the destination is known to be ;) So to conclude, I would at this point still on my YouTube channel: dive & discover. There you'll find my video of nine mile, as well as with all excursions we there have made my holiday video from Jamaica.
