My partner and I enjoyed an engaging and insightful visit to the living Rastafarian Indigenous Village in October 2023. Mid-morning, we were greeted by village resident, Queen I, on the edge of the property. She was ever-present for the remainder of the day, guiding us throughout, tailoring aspects of the visit to our interests and understanding. Her enthusiasm and articulation made her an excellent ambassador for the community. She personalised the stories and information shared, and delivered everything with grace, poise and a glowing smile. Queen I explained the origins of the community, the vision for the future and the Rastafi belief system. We toured the community garden and orchid, the bush bath and, Queen I's personal project, organic soap manufacture (a true delight for the senses, you can purchase on the community's website if interested). We were also fortunate to enjoy a private sit-down conversation with King Toto, one of the community's founders and principle drum maker, about his life and perspectives. And, after participating in the preparation of and relishing a delicious ital (Rastafi Vegan) meal, we spoke with First Man on the evolution of Rastafarianism in Jamaica since the 1930s and the return to Zion. Finally, we savoured an opportunity to participate in a drumming/chanting ceremony in the tabernacle as those willing enjoyed the sacrament (ganja). Unlike many sights in Jamaica, this is not commercialised or mass market. As such, to book this intimate experience contact the community over email or WhatsApp with at least a few days notice and be grateful for the opportunity to engage with an often misunderstood yet influential part of Jamaica's identity, past, present and future. A real treat!

We did the rastafari rhythyms tour and had a great time. Queen I was an amazing guide and teacher about the village life and beliefs. Was so cool looking at all the different plants growing in the garden and how they're used. We especially loved making ital stew with cardolisa and of course spending some time with firstman and learning more about the rastafari community. Do yourself a favor and break out of the hotel for a day and trek to the RIV. The second you slip off your shoes and cross the river you will know you made the right choice.

Words cannot express my experience at RIV. It was outstanding. This tucked away community embodies One Love. The community is passionate about Rasta culture and philosophy including harmony with nature. Everything was a blessing for me: purchasing a drum from King Totto, exposure to Tebah's kindness and dance and drum skills and eating Cardolisa's food (absolutely amazing ital food! Wow! Cardo, please bring your Ital restaurant to Kingston! I am not vegan/vegetarian and I did not miss meat one tiny bit). Stephanie's kindness and hosting came from her heart and Firstman and Queen I's skillful facilitation of my first enagagements with plant medicine was an experience I will never forget. The children were also so sweet. It will take me many months to process and overstand the deep blessing of my experience here. Many months! If you are attracted to the idea of going to RIV, please go. You will not regret it. My hope is that more Jamaicans like myself will enagage with RIV, because I left with such deep pride in my culture and deep desire for the healing of our nation. "Rasta will liberate the people".

A very special place. Peaceful atmosphere. Somewhere to come to reconnect with nature and a sense of purity. I came with my children and they loved it, the chance to cook ital food and hear about the Rastafari faith. An unforgettable and rejuvenating experience.

We visited in July 2022. This place and above all the people there are absolutely amazing. From the moment First Man picked us up from my father in law's house I felt comfortable and at home. These people have created an amazing space to protect, preserve, and promote their culture. We learnt about healing herbs and potions, Rastafari drumming, crafts, farming, ital food and the Rastafari philosophy. It wasn't cheap but I can honestly say it was money well spent.
I lost my phone in the car on the way back and only realised later. They'd found it and made another long trip back to return it to me without any hesitation. I will never forget about this place or these amazing people

Our tour was a spiritual and eye-opening experience. We learned so much about the Rastafari culture. We learned about their life philosophy and Ital cuisine. The tour was very interactive and the hosts were very welcoming to us. We have so much love and respect for this community.

Of course the village experience itself is awesome and so are all the friendly faces that you’ll see, the tasty Ital food you’ll get to eat (and even cook yourself), and all the amazing art and craftwork that you’ll have the opportunity to observe and learn about. But by far the best aspect of this experience is the insights into Rasta culture, beliefs, and history that you’ll receive from all the knowledgeable folks at the village. Everyone was an absolute delight to talk to and interact with and were ready to answer any questions you had about their way of life. The gardens, the soap factory, the kitchen, the village Center, the drum house, and the drum service that you’ll get to hear really make this village feel alive and lived in. Finally, I have to give a special shout-out to First Man, who helped us with transport, booking, pricing and even offered us discounts on our rides to and from the village. More importantly, he gave my girlfriend and I one of the most engaging, introspective, and eye opening car rides ever. We talked about all manners of spiritual and metaphysical topics and concepts that don’t often get discussed in everyday life. He is a deeply wise, warm, and intelligent man who excels at storytelling and breaking difficult concepts down into digestible bits. All in all, if Rastafarianism is about peace with the earth and all it’s inhabitants, then these folks embody that ethos. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested and make sure to grab some friends and family to go along as the price is more manageable in larger groups. To all my friends at the village, I’ll be seeing you again very soon!
