Going to the Good Hope Plantation was the perfect activity in Jamaica. Not only, was it educational, it was also spiritual and relaxing. The location is picture-perfect and so beautiful. It was amazing to overlook the plantation grounds and seeing the cockpit mountain region from the Great House. We were so touched that we had to take a moment to meditate there in the front lawn (attached a picture) and take it all in.
Besides the magical views, the highlight of visiting Good Hope was taking part in High Tea in the back of the house, by far, my favorite British tradition. By the way, in the US "High Tea" is usually translated as a time to eat small pastries and cookies with tea. When in actuality, traditional "High Tea" is a lot heavier and usually includes meats and heartier dishes along with the tea. Anyhow, it was a beautiful experience. The service at the Great House was fantastic.
I found the people of Jamaica to be amazing and so friendly. We were also glad that we used CHUKKA as our tour operator to take us to Good Hope. Their drivers were safe and so knowledgeable. Really loved their service.
I highly recommend a trip to the Good Hope Plantation and to the Great House.
