Good Hope Estate

1 Trelawny St, Falmouth, Jamaica

The Basics

Having grown into a village to support the plantation’s workers after emancipation in the late 1700s, the grounds are sprawling, with many of the original buildings—such as the sugar factory and church—fully intact. After joining Chris Blackwell’s Island Trading Group, the 2,000-acre (809-hectare) estate received an elegant makeover that added modern amenities while maintaining the estate’s authentic charm. Resort-like additions include a swimming pool, a 9,000-square-foot (836-square-meter) aviary with exotic birds, and an adventure park where thrill-seekers ride ATVs, soar on ziplines, or tube along the river. High tea and rum tastings are served at the adjacent Appleton Estate. Guests staying the night can choose from a handful of accommodation options, including a 3-bedroom villa in a colonial cut-stone cottage. Steps away is a a swimming hole on the Martha Brae River.

Great experience. The timing should have been budgeted more appropriately. We didn’t have time for the wine and rum tasting.

Great day the rafting was excellent our guide Jermaine was brilliantly funny & made sure we enjoyed the experience. The zip line was great Richard & the team kept us safe at all times & made it fun our only down side was that there were only 4 lines but they were really fast and give you a real thrill. President made the tubing fun though it was a little more sedate than we expected all in all a great day

He has a wonderful disposition and works so hard! 10/10 will rebook when back!

Captain Kayron on the water raft was awesome! We acquired new knowledge about the Martha Brae River! The zip lining crew ( Earl, DeShawn, Richard and Bones) ensured that we had a great time. Definitely will be back

Chukka Good Hope Ultimate Pass with Bamboo Rafting, Zip & Tube, Rum Tasting
We had a great experience and our tour guides were great. From our bus driver and tour guide to the Zip Line crew, Tubing crew, the rum tasting master, and the bamboo rafting guide, everyone was amazing. We enjoyed lunch, shopping, lounging at the pool, and enjoying the wilderness. The best part was the rum punch and the leg/foot massage on the raft ride!

BOOK WITH CHUKKA! 🥳

Chukka Good Hope Ultimate Pass with Bamboo Rafting, Zip & Tube, Rum Tasting
What a great experience! I had no idea Chukka was it’s own little area, or resort, I thought maybe we’d just be with the group and they’d take up to different areas, but everything was all within their Chukka grounds and that is very convenient. Everyone working was so nice, funny and informative I learned a little about Jamaica with each encounter and I loved that! They had a nice pool with a waterfall, a huge water slide, a bar, a rum tasting room (rum tasting was included in our package), a gift shop, an area for lunch (lunch was provided with our package) and great vibes. We chose the ultimate tour and the three excursions included was the Zip Lining, river tubing, and bamboo rafting. If you zipline they tell you to wear closed toe shoes or water shoes, if you wear water shoes I recommend ones with hard bottoms because it’s sort of a hike, we have to walk through the jungles to get to the certain zip lining points but it is a great experience, besides the mosquitos.. bring bug spray, they tell you too as well we just don’t listen. Our zip line guides Fritz(I probably spelled this wrong), Deshawn, Earl, and Omar we amazing! They made it so much fun. There are also 5 different zip lines that you do so that’s very cool as well, I read in a comment before about there only being a short zip line but it’s not true. River tubing was the most learning experience of the tour. Our Guide Jevan (maybe javon, I forgot how he said it was spelled, I’m sorry) and the other guy marlon were great as well! They kept things fun and interesting and encouraged us to take part in the full experience.. jumping into the deep and cold river after we toured through it and we loved every second, my husband jumped in three times! Lastly, the bamboo raft was so relaxing! I read a comment about this before too about how they said the guides don’t massage the men, I can’t speak to everyone’s experience but Lorenzo took care of me and my husband. He’s such a cool guy, we talked about where he’s from in Jamaica his goals, and just overall life. The foot massage was great and Lorenzo was overall a really good guide, we recommended him for sure. We love everything about our chukka experience and I encourage people to check it out! I feel like it was worth our money. They have so many different options of excursions to choose from so where one might not suit you, the other might. The only thing I wished was a little better was the check in times. We were the first group to arrive but we had to wait until all other groups came and got checked in to begin things and that’s kind of annoying because we were so excited to just get started.
