WONDERFUL CABINS IN A BEAUTIFUL SETTING
"I can't say enough good things about this place: the food cooked by Barbara was delicious, especially the run down with fresh coconut milk; the cabins are comfortable and cozy; the guide (Steve) on the Cunha Cunha Pass Trail was very knowledgeable and helpful; and the trail as well as the nearby river and waterfalls were downright beautiful."
A PLACE OF HISTORY AND CULTURE
"If you are interested in the history of Jamaica and its Maroon people this would be an excellent destination. The surrounding mountains are spectacular and the trails around Ambassabeth makes it possible to explore them."
