This report is a summary of a learning journey by Sustainable Rural Regenerative Enterprises for Families (SURREF) and six individuals representing stakeholders and partners who traveled to Jamaica from December 11 to December 16, 2011. These stakeholders and partners visited Country Style Community Tourism Network (CCTN) in Jamaica to learn more about the CCTN approach to community based tourism. The learning journey report reflects on experiences during the visit and on how SURREF's approach to community based tourism might benefit from incorporating and/or diverging from elements of the CCTN approach.
