The Afrocentric faith called Rastafari, which was founded on Jamaica in the 1930s, goes beyond just dreadlocks and cannabis. The religious and social movement is about a lifestyle that includes a strict vegetarian diet, the eschewing of materialism and a belief in a second coming of sorts. (And yes, cannabis is involved—it is said to enhance spirituality and cleanse the mind and body.) Although the village is a bit touristy, a visit here gives an in-depth look at the daily lives of Rastas. There are farm tours, craft demos, music classes and plenty of photo ops.
