Tourist Support Network | Exclusively on Rasta Routes’s


The Walk Good Tourist Support Network (a.k.a. “Irie Mom”) is a resource for Visitors to Jamaica to use to Encourage Safe Travel and Facilitate the Provision of Efficient Assistance, in case of Travel Emergencies.

For example, if there were an Unforeseen Event – the ability to quickly confirm the Exact Locations of Community Tourism Guests in the affected areas of Jamaica would be invaluable.

The Walk Good Tourist Support Network (a.k.a. “Irie Mom”) allows for the location those who are in an affected area, provide Basic Emergency Information for coordination with Local Authorities.

One of the Rasta Routes Tourist Support Network (Irie Mom)’s core features is a Shared, Private Chat room where Responders can coordinate to prepare the most appropriate action.

You can access the Rasta Routes Tourist Support Network (a.k.a. “Irie Mom”) from any device that has a Web Browser, including public kiosks at Libraries, Computer Labs, Internet Cafés & now at Kingston’s Devon House too!

During a specific or general Crisis Alert Situation like a Hurricane, the Rasta Routes Tourist Support Network provides Travelers and Topic Experts – and Rescue Authorities when required – with a Real-Time Map of the Alerter’s and Each Others’ Locations, Chat Rooms for coordinating a response, and Audio/Video sharing capabilities.

Although the Rasta Routes Tourist Support Network (Irie Mom) is designed to be useful in even the most high-risk situations, users can also use Irie Mom however they want.

Rather than discourage this, we think the Rasta Routes Tourist Support Network (Irie Mom) can be useful even when someone may feel like their situation may not rise to the level of calling Jamaican 1-1-9.

Tourist Welcome Greeters | Exclusively on Rasta Routes’s

Yuh’ Don’t have to be Afraid to Leave Yuh’ Comfort Zone for Unknown! Meeting a Local Cultural Ambassador is Free of Charge & at a Public Venue, plus all Visitors are welcomed without discrimination, so – Let’s Meet & Greet Here in Jamaica for some Blue Mountain Coffee or a Red Stripe Beer!

Additionally, for the approximate Cost of Meals, Round-Trip local Gas/Transport (and probably an independently pre-arranged service fee), Cultural Ambassadors can Chaperone Yuh’ or Yuh’ Group to Urban Destinations and Events, like Authentic Dancehall Music “Street Sessions”, or even Accompany Yuh’ on Cross-Country Public Transportation from one Irie Jamaican Destination to another.

Taking a local Cultural Ambassador tour is a great way to see area Sights and Experience parts of a City you wouldn’t have otherwise known about. You can also learn a lot about the History and Culture of an area through a local Cultural Ambassador guide.

Finding a good, local Cultural Ambassador guide can easily make a tour one of the Prime Highlights of your entire trip.

They know local Do’s and Don’t’s (which can be critical in any new city). And since you’re abroad, they Help Yuh’ Understand a new place if you don’t happen to speak our English language and/or local Pat’wa (Patois) dialect.

Cultural Ambassadors can show Yuh’ places in Jamaica that have a Special, Historic or Personal meaning to them & also recommend Things for Yuh’ to Do in Categories that visitors specifically ask for the most – Beaches, Nightlife, Restaurants, Hidden Waterfalls, etc.

Escape the Ordinary on a Backpacking Adventure to Jamaica!

As a Developing nation, Tourism is one of Jamaica’s Main “Exports” and Represents a Significant part of the Country’s economic output (Until the World Wakes Up to Hemp… 🙂 )!

For Generations of Jamaicans, Tourists have been “the UNTOUCHABLES“…

Even during Jamaica’s darkest days in the late 70’s, Visitors & Holiday Makers were Warmly Welcomed and Showered with Genuine Island Hospitality – while Ghettos & Shanty Towns were Curfewed & Showered with Bullets.

As most Backpackers already know, Skin Tone & Heritage don’t Matter much when Yuh’ visit Popular Tourist Destinations – as Often the Only Color locals see is “Green“!

( Hey, we’re jus’ Trying to Keep dis’ Thing Real )

This can be a Good Thing as in Jamaica it Helps Keep you Safer from the “Natural” crime rate – mostly connected to Turf Battles & Internal Gang Disputes involving Hard Drug Trans-Shipments, Lottery Scams & International Money Wire-Transfer Schemes.


So, Yuh’ Want to Go to ‘Portie’?
