Description

Step off the beaten path and discover a side of Jamaica many visitors miss on this 4-hour community tour from Falmouth, Lucea, and Montego Bay. Explore rural townships and villages with a guide. Along the way, meet some of the local residents and learn of life in Jamaica away from the tourist resorts. Visit the Hampden Rum Estate — a sugar cane plantation — and enjoy lunch in a traditional rum distillery. This tour includes round-trip travel from Montego Bay and surrounding areas.

Following a morning pickup at your hotel in Falmouth, Lucea, Montego Bay, Negril, Ocho Rios, or St. Ann's, meet your guide and take a seat in your vehicle. At 10am, head into the countryside to begin your 4-hour tour.

Stop along the way to explore the region’s rural communities, and gain insight into life in Jamaica away from the tourist resorts. Interact with the villages’ residents, visit local schools to learn how they operate, and see medical centers run for the benefit of the community.

During your tour, perhaps support community youth development programs by purchasing handcrafted items (own expense). Cool down with a coconut water or Red Stripe beer (own expense), and maybe enjoy a game of dominoes with the locals.

Afterward, visit the Hampden Rum Estate — a Jamaican sugar cane plantation. Here, follow your guide through the estate and learn of sugar cane’s role in the region’s economy. Then, enjoy lunch in one of the oldest rum distilleries in the Caribbean.

After lunch, return in comfort to your hotel to conclude your tour.
