Nestled in the peak of the Cockpit Mountains is where you will find this rare gem which is home to approximately 1,000 villagers who are ready and waiting to welcome you with open arms - always ready to extend their warm spirit, culture and unadulterated history.

On the day of the tour, your friendly tour guide will meet you at the time specified at your hotel main lobby. Kindly have a printed or electronic copy of your voucher ready for verification. As soon as that is done and you are seated in one of our cool air-conditioned van/bus, we set off towards the south of the Island so relax and enjoy the lush, green mountains and valleys for the next 1 hour 50 minutes while we make our way to Accompong Town Maroon Village. Don't forget to take lots of photos. Our tour guides are very knowledgeable, informative, professional, and are ready to entertain you with lots of information on Jamaica's rich history so feel free to engage them on your trip.

This trip will take you through little rural farming towns and villages. Many of these villages were developed during the plantation era, so much so, till this day, the prime source of income is farming. After a 1 hour 50 minutes ride you get to the village where you will be greeted by our learned resident Maroon Guide who will give a briefing before taking you on a tour of the village while indicating where the various seal grounds are. You will continue on to Kindah (Means one family). There you get to sit under a huge mango tree on the very rocks that the Maroon Warriors sat on either to plan their strategy before an attack on the British Red Coats or to celebrate after an attack and they were successful. Hundreds of Maroons and visitors will be entertained in the traditional, authentic Maroon spirit of drumming singing and dancing. A feast of boiled pork, roasted yam and roasted plantain will be available for sampling.

After the visit to Kindah, your tour guide will take you to the museum at Cudjo's monument. While on your way to the museum feel free to purchase from the vendors who seized on the opportunity to provide various local dishes and fresh fruits. At the museum you are ask to sign the visitor's log before entering. You will find several artifacts going back to the 17th and 18th centuries.

Time spent at the village is approximately 4 hours then it's time to go back to your hotels/pickup points.
