Ambassabeth Cabins – an Eco Tourism Treasure in Portland
Looking for an eco-tourism vacation in Jamaica? How about visiting the Rio Grande Valley in Jamaica?
Ambassabeth Eco-Cabins is a unique experience of Jamaican rural life and a authentic eco- tourism vacation or weekend get-away.
Located in the upper Rio Grande Valley about 15 miles south of Port Antonio, the Ambassabeth Cabins are owned and operated by the Bowden Pen Farmers Association (BPFA) which also operates a resources management programme in the area.
The BPFA is engaged in several broad areas of activities: environmental management, heritage protection and preservation, land use planning and management, education and training.
Ambassabeth eco-cabins and the Cunha Cunha Pass Heritage Trail are the primary income generating activities of the Association, supporting the work carried out by the organization and assisting in improving the livelihood of members and the residents as a whole.
Ambassabeth and related tourism products have developled significantly over the past 8 years. And with the growing trend towards the development of nature tourism activities it is envisaged that Ambassabeth with its unique and authentic product will become a model to be replicated in other areas.
Ambassabeth is located at Bowden Pen, (formerly known as Four Feet) in the upper Rio Grande Valley. This region is regarded as one of the most strikingly beautiful areas on the island.
The eco-cabins are situated on gently sloping hills overlooking the Rio Grande River and caressed by the north eastern trade winds coming from the majestic Blue and John Crow Mountains.
Ambassabeth can accommodate up to 25 persons in 9 eco-friendly cabins, comfortably furnished, with facilities for dining, meetings/lectures, games or just relaxing. The facility is retro-fitted with solar lights and a solar water heater, potable toilets and water gravity fed from one of the community’s sparkling springs.
In close proximity is the famous Cunha Cunha Pass Trail, the oldest trail in the island and once the bastion for the Windward Maroons. The trail is a natural habitat for the Giant Swallowtail Butterfly, humming birds, doves and numerous endemic plants and a source of natural springs gushing from the Blue Mountains.
Ambassabeth offers visitors a unique experience to be immersed in nature, the culture and history of the area and to enjoy real old time Jamaican hospitality.
Visitors have the opportunity to determine the package of their choice, from a basic package for accommodation and meals to a package for college credits.
Activities include river bathing, trail hiking, visits to observe traditional farming methods, field trips to learn about the flora and fauna of the area, traditional harvesting of crayfish or janga, learning to cook traditional food, horse back riding, community nights, story telling and cultural presentations.
Special discounts are given to schools, church groups and youth groups.
Ambassabeth Cabins is also available for day visits or overnight accommodation.
Other nearby activities include waterfalls all to yourself, a large river for rafting or lounging, the Cuna-Cuna Trail Pass, the Maroon settlement at Moore Town, bananawalks, and the list goes on…
A visit to Amabassabeth renews the body and soul, providing an active learning vacation you can never forget.

That’s not me specific the place you will be getting the data, nevertheless good theme. I personally should invest some time studying more or maybe determining far more. Thanks for outstanding info I’d been on the lookout for this data in my quest.
Though softer compared to a larger bodied guitar, the nice definition of every note makes
it easily audible as it’s voice ‘sings through’ even inside a room full or
larger instruments. I started on a steel string guitar, I
recommend purchasing one with nylon strings.
DR Extra Life Acoustic Guitar Strings could be purchased essentially music stores
and even online outlets including Musician’s Friend for the average cost of around $25.
For another $50-100, you’ll be able to upgrade for
the FG730S model, which replaces the ambiguous laminated “Nato” back and sides with laminated Rosewood.
An unspoilt gem – well worth going to – once you reach you won’t want to leave – and the cunha cunha trail is spectacular. The community are warm and welcoming and the guides proud to share their land with you – a very special experience.
Great work on website. Try to add the (1)876 before the contact number as some people may not know the code for Jamaica
