Destination expert Ava-Ann Waite is back with a great insider tip on where to spend a wonderful family adventure in Jamaica.
Jamaica is an enchanting Caribbean island. From the moment you arrive you are taken in by the highly contagious Caribbean vibe; a wonderful feeling of joy and tranquility bolstered by an explosion of tropical landscapes.
While on vacation with your family in Jamaica, apart from enjoying your time on the beach and taking advantage of the facilities at your resort, you will surely also want out to adventure out and explore the exciting activities offered on this tropical paradise.
Here is my suggestion for a wonderful family adventure in Jamaica.
Chukka Good Hope Estate
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.
A Wonderful Family Adventure in Jamaica
Good Hope also offers a playground for kids equipped with the popular Obstacle Course that keeps them occupied all day. The entire family is entertained as adults get their adrenaline going at the Challenge Course. With some much to see and do, as well as swings, slides, a relaxation pool and chill out spots, there is no room for boredom at this family hot spot.
Here are just a few of the activities that you and your family can do.
