A guide is highly recommended to enjoy the most of this all day hike.
Day Hike #6 Jaco Farm's nature trail system. Jaco Farm has an extensive nature trail system through tropical vegetation and a beautiful Rainforest River Walk trail.
JACO FARM is located 2000' up in the rainforest at Syndicate, in the north west of Dominica, about 15 minutes south of Portsmouth and Ross University, along the excellent, newly paved West Coast Highway and is accessed by the paved Morne Diabloton National Park road to within 1/4 mile of the property, where the access road becomes cobble stone.
Jaco Farm provides fresh fruit and vegetables to the residents of Dominica, St. John and St. Thomas in the U .S. Virgin Islands.
All fruit and vegetables are naturally grown without use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides since 2006.
In a small way, Jaco Farm by returning to Dominica's traditional (chemical free) farming methods also helps to act as an environmental buffer zone for the adjacent National Park and the headwaters of the Dublanc River, on which the farm is located.
The head waters of the Dublanc River in undisturbed rainforest form the farms lower boundry!
