In the Jamaican jungle near Reach Falls the road is dotted with Jamaican Artists and delights.
Soon after you leave the Falls, you will come across Bredda Lion's Roots Tonic stand. Here you can experience a drink that will make you fit, all natural roots. "It build you. It clean you." This is the original jungle juice recipe! Bredda Lion also may sing for you. Bredda Lion runs Reach Falls River Camp where you can safely camp or rent a cabin on the river.
Tuc Shop near Bredda Lion's Reach Falls River Camp
All around Jamaica you can find "Tuc Shops". This means little shop, whose inventory ebbs and flows with the economy. If you see well stocked shelves, you know times are good. If the shelves are bare, "Time Tough".
We have heard rumors that tourist in the all inclusives are instructed not to go to tuc shops. Maybe this reflects the location of the shops, near the all inclusives where the most professional higglers reside. We feel that these little shops are a great way to shop Jamaican, meet people and contribute directly to the local economy. Plus all that walking is hot stuff. Time for refreshment.
Further down the road you will find a whole family of Jamaican artists. Here lies the main carving area for Jah Priest and his family. Jah Priest told us he is like Rumplestillskin. But he turns calabash into gold. He need to do this because he is a slave to his belly.

Just south of the turnoff, from Highway A-4 toward Reach Falls you will find Dungu's Welcome to Reach Falls Rest. Now rest can mean many things. It can be a place to rest and have a drink of your choice of Jungle Juice. It can be a place to go to the restroom or it can be a restaurant. Dungu will explain this to you when you go.
