Mokko's Prices

Staying at Mokko's guesthouse is a lot like camping, though with a bed and a cook, flush toitet and cold shower.  It is without a doubt the "real Jamaica" with all its many facets. You move freely throughout the community under his protection.

Cabins at Riverside Cool Cottages are clean and dry. Each cabin has its own lock. Dinners are prepared from freshly gathered natural food and cooked over a natural wood fire.

You are nestled safe in your bed, but you can hear the night symphony of noises, tree frogs, roosters and crickets.

Mokko's guide service is safe, knowledgeable, affordable and available to his guests at Riverside Cool Cottages. Guides in Jamaica get into tourist areas for free.

"Our experience with Mokko was grea t . Mokko is the ultimate Bush Doctor, and healed our colds while we were in Jamaica.  From Mokko, we learned to find the real local stuff and nature which benefited the rest of our trip. We weren't afraid to take the route taxi or bus. We keep in touch with Mokko and will certainly see him again on our next trip."
