Belvedere Estate Tour: Montego Bay Attractions, Jamaica

Belvedere Estate Tour

If you survive her spell, we then move on to Belvedere Estate, another popular plantation tour which comprises a twin river farm with a historic village and museum. You will be exposed to the milling of sugar cane by horse–drawn techniques as well as a guided tour of the estates herbal garden. Sampling of Jamaica's famous Jerk Chicken and Jerk Pork are also a unique treat of this tour. Demonstrations of hand–crafted straw hats & mats will open your eyes to the culture of Jamaicans. Lunch served at the estate is an open restaurant affair with Jamaica's mento music providing live entertainment.

Belvedere is a family–owned working plantation of 1,000 acres, of which 500 are cultivated with tropical fruits. Red Poll cattle, which are indigenous to Jamaica, graze the other 500 acres. There is a waterfall where you may bathe.

The estate offers a fascinating perspective of modern estate life and an intriguing re–creation of how things were almost three centuries ago, when the estate became one of the first sugarcane plantations in Jamaica.

You're welcomed by guides in Jamaican–bandanna prints offering sugarloaf, and pineapple and orange samplers, while a farmhand coaxes a donkey in circles to demonstrate the workings of an old sugar press. If you've arrived under your own steam, a guide will come in your car as you drive through the groves of citrus and coconut palms.

She'll also walk you though the botanical gardens and post–Emancipation Village, featuring huts where a basket–weaver, baker, blacksmith, and coffee and cocoa grinder demonstrate traditional skills. A tour by tractor–pulled jitney is in the works.
