About these ratings

Take some time out of your sunning and swimming to pay homage to a musical legend. Located between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios is the small village of Nine Mile, where you can tour the birth home and burial ground of Bob Marley. Be sure to snap a few photos of the home's exterior, decked out in Rastafarian "ice, gold and green" (or red, yellow and green). Inside, pay particular attention to the house's walls, where fans have left hand-written notes to "the prophet." You should also swing by the next door mausoleum for Marley, dine in the on-site restaurant or pick up a trinket in the Marley gift shop. Keep in mind that this site can get very busy. One TripAdvisor reviewer recommends heading out first thing in the morning: "We went early in the day and arrived before 11 a.m. This was ideal as around 11:30 bus loads of cruise ship passengers rolled in and it got quite packed."

Getting to the site can be a trecherous drive, though; if your hotel offers guided excursions your best bet is to venture out on one of those tours. If you have children in tow or prefer not to be exposed to smoke, know that the site allows the use of marijuana by staff and visitors. You can visit the Bob Marley Centre and Mausoleum every day from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the museum costs $19 USD.
