THE JOURNEY TO RAFJAM
Going to Rafjam you can take a cab or drive your own vehicle. The actual road leading to Rafjam can either be driven on or you may walk along the trail from the Red Light District area.
The walk is roughly twenty minutes, depending on how physically fit you are it could be less. The view along the trail is majestic and the closer you get to Rafjam you will hear the sound of the river along the path. You will notice signs strategically placed along the trail encouraging you as you trod along.
RAFJAM WALK/DRIVE FROM RED LIGHT DISTRICT
In my opinion, an off-road vehicle would be best but I've seen a few vehicles parked along the path that took on the rugged adventure.
On reaching Rafjam you will see the welcome sign and this home-like doorway entrance. Welcome to my crib! lol
Rafjam has a very relaxing atmosphere and is very quiet. You can surely relax and unwind amongst nature and enjoy the coolness of the mini pools and waterfall surrounding the property. A beautiful garden filled with various flowers and luscious trees surrounds the entire landscape, which I most definitely indulged in as I explored.

Overall the Rafjam experience is a good one. I've been there on several occasions and would return for the peace and calm felt during my time there.
