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.

  • Despite the few comments that mention this visit as a trap for tourists, personally it's one of the tours (excursions from a liner) that I found just the least trap to tourists. Actually in Jamaica as in many places in the Caribbean or in the USA, the "tips" are part of their way of life (we have just not used). We are neither obliged to give, or forced to buy or consume. As for the visit, she allows us to see inside the very green and hilly country, far precisely the very tourist seaside... opportunity to see more close the local population, we had lunch in a typical restaurant... completely lost... For Nine Miles on a background of reggae guided by Rastafarians, it was a total, perched a little change of scenery, but otherwise I'd be disappointed... friendly people who are cool, open and peaceful... No Problem...

  • very humbling experience, you must visit this place if ever in Jamaica and especially if you are a Bob Marley fan.  more »
  • To know where the King of Reggae lived your childhood is an indescribable feeling. Well worth meeting Nine Mile. Just a warning, stay away and takes a few 2:00 (from Ocho Rios), but like I said, it's worth a lot! There you can meet the room where Bob Marley slept, the stone of "meditation", as well as the grave where he is embalmed.
