Halfway up the main road between Kingston and the heart of the mountains, this small spot clings to the side of a switchback and serves local brew and sandwiches.
The coffee is great (ground and brewed on site) and so is the food, but the views are the best thing here, overlooking Kingston and surrounding valleys from 4,200 feet.
This charming spot near Port Antonio serves Blue Mountain coffee as well as traditional Jamaican chocolate tea sourced from a nearby village.
Rafjam’s Bed and Breakfast, Tiki Bar and Grill
This family-run B&B near Irish Town has a restaurant that serves up Jamaican favourites and offers both chairs and hammocks as seating options.
It’s not easy to reach, but for those hiking the main trail to Blue Mountain Peak, this off-the-grid spot at the 4,200-foot mark offers great home cooking.
Where to Eat in Puerto Vallarta
A city of undulating cobblestone streets strung along a broad sweep of the Pacific Ocean, Puerto Vallarta has been welcoming visitors to one of the best culinary scenes on Mexico’s west coast since Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor first put this former backwater fishing town on the map back in the 1960s.
