Overview

Once a sugar plantation owned by John Tharpe, Jamaica's largest slave and plantation owner, this impressive colonial-style estate is now an elaborate park dedicated to exploring the region's natural and cultural heritage. Good Hope Estate provides visitors with a unique perspective on Jamaican culture. In addition to the plethora of adventure activities, you will also have an opportunity to explore the grounds and facilities as well as sample and buy local products such as coffee, rum and jerk seasoning. If you're lucky, you many even get to meet resident artist and master potter David Pinto.

We had been on all excursions and looked for something different. Pleasantly quiet and tour guide was excellent. The food was ok on the trip but the tour was so relaxing. Leave kids on boat.
