Rhodes Hall Plantation
Get a sense of how life used to be in Jamaica at the Rhodes Hall Plantation - a historic property and working plantation set on a private 550 acre (222 hectare) estate, 5 mi (8 km) outside of Negril.
You can visit, go horse riding or stay at the estate, which has two private beaches (with no vendors allowed), a nature trail and a crocodile reserve.
Operating since the 1700s, the plantation has its history in sugar cane and rum and several artifacts and copies are on display from the era, including the cauldrons originally used by slaves to boil down sugar cane.
The terrain surrounding the plantation is quite diverse; riding a horse through the forests of banana and coconut palms and along the quiet beach is one of the best ways to experience it.
The horse riding is suitable for beginners and the more experienced. Kids will love seeing all the other animals and birds that freely roam the plantation, too.
Rhodes Hall Plantation is just north of Bloody Bay at Green Island. Head north towards the A2 and turn left at Alice Eldemire Drive.
