Croydon Plantation with Jamaican Lunch

Duration: Half Day

Croydon Plantation with Jamaican Lunch

The beautiful island of Jamaica is renowned for its vast plantations, which are a part of the country’s rich history. This tour will enable you to explore the prize-winning Croydon Plantation, a working coffee and pineapple plantation located at the base of the Catadupa Mountains. Sample the delicious tropical fruits and enjoy a delicious Jamaican buffet surrounded by lush green mountains. This is one tour you won’t want to miss during your holiday in Jamaica.

Capture the spirit of Jamaica as you travel inland for a rural adventure into the island’s majestic mountainous countryside. We finally reach the beautiful Croydon Plantation, the birthplace of National Hero Sam Sharpe, the famous slave leader behind the bloody Baptist War slave rebellion which took place in Jamaica in 1831.

Nestled in the foothills of the Catadupa Mountains, just a short drive from the tourist capital of Montego Bay, the views here will take your breath away. Picturesque mountains, lush vegetation, wild flowers and waterfalls are just some of the highlights of this tropical paradise. Beautiful photo opportunities await you at every turn.

Your local tour guide will lead you through the working part of the estate as he reveals the history of the plantation and describes the crops they produce. On the way, you can taste exotic seasonal fruits such as pineapples and other citrus fruits, in addition to other crops such as jackfruit and sugarcane. This will keep your hunger at bay until lunchtime.

As you walk through the coffee groves, your guide will also explain the secrets of coffee cultivation and processing as he takes you through working demonstrations. Coffee is one of Jamaica’s biggest exports, and the island produces some of the best in the world. This three-hour tour is a fascinating way to learn about Jamaica’s agricultural methods and principle produce.

Afterwards, enjoy a delicious Caribbean barbeque lunch served with the world-famous Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee. Sit back and enjoy the breathtaking views as you relax in this tranquil paradise, surrounded by tropical trees, mountains and countryside. A visit to Croydon Plantation is a must for travellers looking for the real Jamaica.
