We are a team of travellers who visited over 80 countries. Jamaica impressed us so much, that we decided to settle on the island back in 2014 and opened a guest house - Calypso Villa. It has welcomed hundreds of guests since then and earned the status of TOP Airbnb Destination in Jamaica.
We began filming Jamaica Video Guide in 2016 and fell in love with this country even more, but realized there was still a gap in the tourism sector: most tours offered focused on international type of attractions, which are available in many other countries, e.g. river tubing or horse riding, while the authentic Jamaican Experiences are not promoted as much.
In fact, most amazing people and places remained unnoticed due to being spread out high in the hills.

We decided to change that and followed our passion for travelling off-the-beaten-path to find and share the most incredible locations and take guests to the places they've never been before, while doing so at affordable rates.
To be able to do that we began cooperation with our Jamaican friends and partners in every parish. Some have joined our team, others help us at the location of each Experience. This is how IRIELAB LIMITED was officially created in 2018.
