What You Can Expect
Find your way to Prospect Plantation, just outside of Ocho Rios, where your tour will begin. Board the tractor-drawn Jitney for the ride to Sir Harold's Viewpoint, where you'll look out over the ocean, the White River Gorge and the north coast of Jamaica while enjoying a cool drink. View Cuba, about 90 miles to the north, on exceptionally clear days.
The plantation produces cassava, sugar cane, coffee, bananas and various spices, some of which you will taste during your tour.
Climb on to the back of a sturdy camel and enjoy a trek around the plantation. Feed the resident ostriches, visit the butterfly aviary and watch Farmer Joe climb a 30-foot coconut tree. Explore the plantation's points of interest, including the botanical gardens and the Great House.
Tour guide Jackson was great, both informative and funny. Learning about the flora and fauna, tasting the fresh coconut right off the tree, smelling the leaves of allspice and giant limes, sensational. And the camel ride, though quite brief, was delightful. Greta peope, great place, great time, great camels!
Very good tour overall- the information was great, and the tour guides were fun. The plantation home and grounds were fantastic. I would suggest giving guests more time to ride on the camels and actually giving them a destination, instead of riding around in circles. The camel ride was fun, but a bit disappointing.
The camels were very cute and enjoyable. I would recommend this to travelers!
