“Kind on an insult”
Reviewed April 12, 2012 via mobile

Ok, this is really weird, the "plantation" is actually just a plaque at the bottom of a hill where the plantation used to be....not only that it is fenced off so you can't climb the hill only see the plaque...on top of that it is located between 2 parking lots. You can see it if you walk from the rental car drop off to terminal C.
Why they bothered to do this or even list this as a thing to do I don't know....unless you are into scavenger hunts. This is like one of those really obscure things on the amazing race.
