About Bob Marley

Bob Marley is one of the iconic Caribbean figures that will stay at the top of our list of favorite people until the day we die. Although we will never have the chance to meet him, we would love to return to Jamaica to visit his grave site. It is definitely on the list.

Our Experiences with Bob Marley

Other than listening to his music, one of the places that we felt closest to Bob was the music gallery at the Marley Resort & Spa on New Providence Island in the Bahamas during our July 2009 trip. The time we spent in the music gallery room that evening was an almost spiritual moment, which sealed the deal for me as far as Bob being my favorite musician of all time.

In 2014, several years after the Bahamas trip, we finally made it back to Jamaica. This time we made sure to see Bob Marley’s childhood home in 9 Miles, as well as the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston. It was an experience that I would highly recommend to any Bob Marley fan.
